You’re Fiscally Ready
For most people, selling up is a way to increase their bank balance. If you are successful in getting the perfect combination of agent, marketing and timing, you can guarantee to gain from it. But there are costs and risks associated with selling that you need to be able to afford financial-wise.
Can you afford the costs of a new home, particularly if you are considering upsizing rather than downsizing? Can you handle it if you need to rent in between selling and buying your next home? If something unexpected happens, like losing your job, can you and any dependents still manage financially?
Your Suburb is “The Location”
In other words, your suburb is booming. Have you noticed plenty of real estate flyers piling up in your mailbox? Do you see strangers driving by or walking around as if looking for something? Your home could be right at the centre of a hot zone that the market is talking about.
Keep an eye on the local real estate market and check out the situation in your suburb. If you see plenty of people wanting to live in your neighborhood, and you’re otherwise ready to move, it could be the right time to put your house up for sale.
It wouldn't hurt to also find out where your property lies, in terms of price, in your area.
You Have Outgrown your Home
Does your home feel too big after the kids have moved out? Have you added members to your household and it is a logistical problem with just one bathroom?
As our family grows and lives change so do our need for space and function in the home. If your existing home is not meeting your needs, it could be time for you to search for a better fit.
Renovations are such an Effort
If you feel it’s too much effort to undertake the home renovations that you’ve been wanting to do, it could be another hint that you are ready to move one to a different environment.
Are you dreading the prospect of changing the out of date colour scheme and fixtures? Could be a sign to turn over ownership of the home to another individual who can and will tackle the project.
You are Ready for Change
Change can happen unexpectedly, but there are also normal episodes in our lives where feel it is time for change and follow a different path.
If living in your home is making you feel dissatisfied, and there’s a gut feeling to modify your domestic situation, it could be the right time to sell up and give your life a new boost from a different place.
