5th April 2017

Has the idea of moving home been on the cards for some time, always with a reason to put it off a little longer? Whether you're looking to downsize or your family is outgrowing your current property, there are a number of reasons to move house.

But how can you be sure you're ready to go ahead and put your property on the market? The following tips will help to point you in the right direction and give you the motivation you need to put your house on the market and prepare for your future in a new home.

It is definitely time to move house if...

You've climbed the career ladder

That two bedroom semi might have been perfect five years ago, but now that you have a higher income it could be time to upsize your home. Make the most of that extra money whilst you still have it and invest in a property that will provide the perfect setting for your future.

Your little ones aren't so little anymore

If your children have flown the nest and you're finding yourself with empty bedrooms, it could be time to downsize to a property that is the perfect fit for just you and your partner. There's nothing worse than a home that feels empty, so put your family home on the market, pack up all of your favourite memories and take them with you to a brand new home that is perfect for two.

The local area just isn't what it used to be

Do you find yourself driving home from work these days wondering where all of the lovely flowers and trees in your area went? Do you look around and question where the sunshine and happy tone of the area has gone? Then it's certainly time to relocate. Sadly, areas change over time and that neighbourhood that was bright and welcoming just a decade ago could be the home of doom and gloom now. If your surroundings no long make you happy, it's time to move on to somewhere that will.

Your family is growing

If your family has grown and you're finding that your home is becoming a tight squeeze, it's time to upsize to a property that can accommodate to your family and offer enough space for you to all live together comfortably.
