Everyone has their own reasons for deciding the time is right for a change and they want to sell their property. You may think that your house is not right for you, your situation may have changed, or where you live doesn’t fit your current lifestyle. It’s never good to rush any decision, as when emotions start to take over we can make hurried and bad choices rather than taking the time to think things through thoroughly. If you’re unsure what your next step is, here are 6 screaming signs that it’s time to move home.
1. Finding the right sized home
There are different times in our lives when our homes may feel like they are shrinking around us, or growing at a rapid rate. The growth of a family, kids leaving home, a desire for more outside space, or even to live a more frugal life can all be reasons why you might start to think you’re living in the wrong sized home. It’s easy to make a rash decision in this instance, but remember this move will be for the long term, so is your living situation a temporary glitch or are you certain that the right sized home will provide you what you seek?
2. Life’s ups and downs
We all have dreams for how we wish our life would turn out, but it does like to surprise us with some challenges along the way. You may find yourself in a different situation than you were in when you purchased your home. A new relationship may have blossomed, causing you to make a move – you could be blending families and your home is no longer fit for purpose.
Selling may seem the logical conclusion, but is it the right one? Could you rent out your property in the short term? Remember, the children will grow and, in the years to come, will fly the nest!
3. Financially mobile
Your career has taken off since you first moved into your home and you now find yourself in a financially secure situation. As such you are looking for something new and exciting that you believe will better suit your situation. But is moving the right choice? What about making some upgrades to your home and even paying off more of your mortgage, so you can be mortgage-free quicker?
We’re not trying to burst your bubble You’re in an exciting situation and we’d love to show you a selection of amazing properties available in Wokingham.
4. It never felt right!
Have you ever bought something and ended up regretting it down the line? What seemed perfect one day has lost its shine and, as each day passes, your love for it fades away. Sadly this often happens to people when they buy a home, and we don’t want you making the same mistake again.
Therefore, at Quarters Residential we want to completely understand what you want from your property, and also how you live including your lifestyle. Just because you have a dream home in mind, doesn’t mean it will be the perfect home for you. Let us surprise you with what the Wokingham property market has to offer.
5. The community has changed
As the years pass the neighbourhood around us can change, and so too can our needs. Friends and family may have drifted away, your favourite hangouts moved on, and the community that brought so much life into your week seems a distant past.
When you buy a home you are also buying into a community, and what’s around you plays a crucial role in your happiness. Therefore, if you’re no longer feeling settled where you live, maybe it’s time you had a change of scenery.
6. More financial freedom
As we mentioned above, some people yearn to move to give them more financial freedom. You could be living in a property where the maintenance is becoming a drain not only on your resources but also your time, and the lure of a low-maintenance abode is very attractive. Are you one of the savvy ones who, instead of having all your money tied into a property, are looking to move to gain more financial freedom? Your dreams of travelling to a far-off land could soon be realised when you decide to sell your home.
