The New Year countdown has almost begun, and if you’re like most of us then you’ve probably started to think about your resolutions for 2012.
For some of us, we like to get healthier or maybe start on a new path in life, but a lot of people also make the resolution to change their property situation. Here are a few common real estate resolutions we’ve been hearing:
Time to Sell the House – For families that have a new member on the way or have just generally outgrown their current abode, a bigger home is the ultimate resolution. While it might seem like a challenge to sell your home and find a new one, the New Year provides a great time to start planning and organising for your future.
Is it Time to Invest? – It’s a great time to invest in the real estate market right now, so if you’ve been thinking about investing, take a look at your options and consider taking the plunge.
Time to Start/Finish the Renovations – Renovations may seem like a lot of hard work, but they are usually well worth it in the end. If you’ve been thinking about renovating your home then make the New Year the time to do it, you will feel much better about your home once they are finished.
Should You Switch Lenders? – Every so often it is worth re-assessing your mortgage to make sure that your current arrangements still suit you.It may be worth having a chat to your current lender or a financial advisor to see whether you have the best home loan for your situation.
Best of luck in 2012 and let’s hope all of those New Year resolutions become a reality.
