Considering a move?
There are many reasons why people move, the vast majority falling under one of the following categories:
Homeownership – moving from a rental into a home of their own, starting on the property ladder. We can refer to several great lenders too if you need assistance.
New job/location – one of the most common reasons to move, be it in-state, out of state or international. Or perhaps the commute is too long, and it’s time for a better work-life balance.
Re-sizing – doesn’t always mean down-sizing. It’s finding what’s right for you and your family. Does your current home meet those needs? Does the open-plan you once loved still appeal, do you utilize all of the rooms you have? Is the yard now too big to manage or are you thinking of getting a pet and need a larger yard? The kids are now teenagers, and need a space to hang out in a den or basement perhaps? Are you physically able to maintain your home-size?
Change in family circumstances – caring for an elder who now requires a bedroom on the main floor, or the kids are off to college. Relationship changes, marriage, or divorce.
Change in financial circumstances – things change for many reasons, job loss, illness or maybe you’ve decided to stay home with the kids. Would selling your current home enable you to fund the holiday home you’ve always dreamed of?
Change of area/neighborhood – what once appealed now doesn’t, is the neighborhood in decline or maybe you’re keen to try something new and have different needs. Perhaps a specific school district is wanted. Maybe friends or neighbors have moved away and it’s time for a change.
Home value – is it time to cash in on the equity available in the home? Will you be able to afford to make the change later as prices are increasing?
