There's no more space to squeeze into, the cupboards are full, and the drawers won't close, the children have grown out of their rooms and what was a small puppy now takes up half of the sofa. It is time to think about upsizing.
It was inevitable that one day you would need to move to a bigger property, you just didn’t think it would come round so quickly. Whatever your reason for upsizing, make sure to ask yourself these questions first.
You probably thought two bedrooms were plenty when you first moved in, you spruced them up, painted them, bought new furniture, but now the second bedroom is the room of your messy toddlers.
How many rooms do you need? Will your family grow anymore? Do you need an office? A bigger garden? Think about what you don't like in your current home and why you want to upsize.
It is likely you will be in your next property five years and upwards, so think about your long-term needs and what will suit your family. Where would you like your children to grow up? Where are the closest schools? The local supermarket? Does the area have nice long dog walks?
Think ahead 5-10 years and focus on the future.
Selling your home can be a complicated process, and this is where a good local agent can really make a difference. They know the market in your area, and they know what makes a quick hassle-free sale. They are also selling houses for people like you every day of the week, so they can recommend the best marketing techniques available that deliver optimum results for a property like yours.
Look for agents with sales packages that suit your needs. You may need support all the way through the buying process, or you might want to manage part of the process yourself; no matter what your needs, a good agent will have straight-forward packages that can be can customised, so you are only paying for the services you need. A no tie-in period is always a bonus!
If you are selling, then a good way to keep things simple is to use your chosen agent to help you find your new home. The agent can keep things moving for you, and you only have one party to stay in touch with.
