When you have so many wonderful memories in your current home, it can be difficult to make the decision about selling and moving on. Some people struggle emotionally, whereas others struggle financially. Either way, there comes a time that you need to draw a line in the sand, and say to yourself, now is the time to make the move!
It’s not all negative though! Think of the real reason why you would want to sell. Read my 4 reasons, to help you decide if selling would be a good decision for you.
What Is Your Reason For Selling?
Need a bigger home, a smaller property, a private swimming pool, or perhaps be within a community? What if it’s just to give yourself financial freedom? There are many valid reasons, you just need to identify which one best describes you.
What Are The Benefits Of Selling Your Home?
There are many benefits when you sell your home and purchase another. One major reason is to move to a property that is all on one level, or to cut down on the size of the garden. Maintenance of a home can be a deciding factor, whether a smaller or easier to look after garden is in your thoughts, this could be a huge benefit. Perhaps you would benefit from being closer to the shops, or further away from a communal swimming pool. Most importantly, the benefits are how you’ll actually feel in your next home. You’ll feel that a weight has been lifted off your shoulders, once you’ve made the decision. This will benefit not only you but your loved ones too, as you’ll stop complaining on the amount of space, or lack thereof!
What Are The Negatives?
Comparing your new home with your old one! Your current home has had years of your attention, so don’t expect your next one to be walk-in ready! You may have to get your creative cap on, and look at the potential your new home could offer you.
Sorting through your personal effects and boxing everything up is a negative for some. Doing a little at a time, will take the stress away!
What Is Your Goal?
Deciding what your ultimate goal is, will help make the decision easier. If you are downsizing, think of how easy your next home will be to maintain! If you are upsizing, think of the space you’ll be gaining!
By focusing on your goal, will make this entire decision easier!
