Sometimes there are circumstances that force a house owner to think – it’s time to sell your house!
Is it time to sell your house?
At other points in life you might consider moving but be unsure whether it’s the right time…here are 5 signs that it might be time to make a move:
You’re feeling cramped
If it feels like your property has shrunk around you and even a thorough de-clutter hasn’t helped to ease the feeling of having outgrown your home, it may be time to spread you wings to a property that better suits your lifestyle and space requirements. Consider whether there is scope to extend your current property (and whether it’s cost effective to do so); if not, it might well be time to move.
Your house feels too big
The opposite might also be motivation to move. If your children have left home or you’ve recently experienced a relationship breakdown, you may find that you’re rattling around in a property that’s just too big for your needs. If you’re starting to feel overwhelmed by the amount of maintenance your property requires, or if the size of your home is highlighting any feelings of loneliness and loss, it might be time for a fresh start.
You’re looking for a different lifestyle
Perhaps you moved to your current property to be close to your work or to be in the catchment area for a good school, but if your circumstances have since changed and you’re keen for some new scenery, now could be the time to make your move.
Moving has become more cost-efficient than improving
Many properties have significant scope for adaptation and expansion, but it’s important to weigh up the costs and benefits – at a certain point it will likely become more cost effective to move than to improve. It’s important also to think about how personal you’re making the property and what effect that might have on the property’s future saleability. If the changes you’re considering making would reduce the property’s appeal to the mass market, you could be doing yourself a disservice if at any point in the future you’re in the position of needing to sell.
You’ve found your dream property
You may not have been actively looking to move house, but you’ve stumbled upon the house of your dreams and now you can’t get it out of your head! Whether you act on this impulse will likely depend on how much of a natural risk taker you are, but dream properties don’t come along all that often – if you can’t stop thinking about that dream house, maybe it’s time to think about moving?
