Deciding to sell your home is a big decision to make. Your house is often your largest investment, so before deciding to sell up, you need to be sure you’re doing the right thing for you and your family. But what are the tell tale signs that it’s the right time to sell your home?
A growing family
If your brood is getting bigger, your home might soon start feeling smaller. Whether your children are turning into independent teenagers, you’re making plans to find the best school catchment areas or you’re expecting a new addition to the family, if your house is feeling cramped or you’re no longer happy with its location, then it’s a good sign that perhaps it is no longer your perfect family home. As your family grows, your home will need to grow with it and if there is no scope to extend, or you simply don’t want the hassle of building works, get in touch with Knights to start the search for your ideal family home.
Flying the nest
On the other hand, your kids might be embarking on buying or renting homes of their own, leaving your nest feeling a bit too spacious for your needs. You might find yourself visiting Knights to help your grown-up children to find their first home, but at the same time you might decide to look at downsizing too. If you’ve got more space than you know what to do with, this is a definite sign that it’s a good time to think about selling up.
Cutting your commute
Many of us dream of a forever home, but the fact is that our lives and lifestyles change meaning that your perfect property might not suit your needs anymore. Perhaps your family and friends have moved further afield or you’ve recently got a new job in a neighbouring town. Either way, if you don’t want to spend hours commuting then it is probably time for you to consider selling up and relocating. Knights have got a handy commute calculator online to let you work out exactly how long it will take you to get from A to B from any property on our website.
Looking for a project
Some of us thrive on keeping busy and having a project to focus on. If your current home is already in tip-top condition, has reached its ceiling price and has a pristine garden to boot, selling up and searching for your next DIY renovation project could be your answer. So, if you’re still itching to get your hands dirty, Knights can help you find your next big project.
Looking for low-maintenance
As we just mentioned, some of us love DIY. But let’s face it, some of us hate it! If you’re getting tired of constant DIY chores, it might be worth considering selling up in favour of a low-maintenance modern or new-build property. Knights have many to choose from, so if you want a hassle-free home, have a chat with our specialist new homes team to start your property search.
Finances are another important factor to consider when thinking of selling your home. Perhaps you’ve made home improvements which have added value to your property. Maybe the local property market is strong and you’re likely to see a good return on your investment. Or perhaps you want to clear some debts and release some equity from your property. No matter what your financial situation is like, you can start by getting a free property valuation and then our experts at Knights can guide you and advise you if you’re unsure whether now is the right time to sell or not.
