If you’re moving on up in the world or your current home is getting too small to accommodate all of your family, then you might be thinking about moving to somewhere bigger!
Deciding to upsize is a big decision though and one that requires a lot of careful thought and consideration. After all, if you’re planning on moving to a bigger home then chances are it’s going to cost you a lot more than the current home you’re in.
So if you are thinking of upsizing your home – what things do you need to consider first?
Future plans – When you are buying any type of property you should always think about what your future may hold. Is there a possibility that you will change jobs? Can you continue to make repayments? Is there any chance that your family will grow? If so, then make sure you buy a home with enough rooms to accommodate all members of the family.
Room for recreation – If you plan on purchasing your “dream home” then make sure you have enough space to do the things you love. If you like entertaining then you might need room for a bar, games room or pool table. If you’re into movies then you might like a home with enough space for a home theatre.
Does size matter? – Beyond thinking about whether or not you will have enough bedrooms for everyone, also think about how much personal space everyone needs. Would you like separate living areas for the kids and adults? Do you need a workspace so you can work from home? It’s important that everyone in a household has enough space so they aren’t stepping on each other’s toes.
What about the budget? – Everyone wants a big, luxurious home but you need to consider your budget. Negotiate financing you can live with and then start looking at properties in your price range. There’s no point in pinning down the home of your dreams if you can’t afford it.
The above are just some of the things that you should think about when searching for a larger home or any home for that matter.
