A good move

Finding more space to enjoy with your family

Why selling up and moving house could be a good move for you

Asking prices for UK homes have hit a record high for a third-straight month, driven by a shortage of properties on the market. Rightmove said the price sellers sought in April was 9.9% higher than a year ago at £360,000. The property portal described this phenomenon as a “frenzy”.

But is selling the right thing for you to do?

When we look beyond all the hype and news stories the most important thing is to look at your own lifestyle and what you and your family need from a new home.

These considerations are at the forefront of most sellers’ reasoning and could help with your decision to sell up and move to a new home:

  1. Location: Move to a place you love. The location may have more green spaces and quieter than your current home, with great amenities and transport links.
  2. Schools: If you have children consider the catchment area and standards of schools in that area. How will your children get to school in the morning? Are standards good?
  3. Opportunities: The great move to the country has been encouraged by more flexible working and the rise of the home office. Do new working practices allow you more freedom to live where you would like to?
  4. Friends and Family: Moving closer to family and friends can improve your quality of life, and a welcoming local community can make you quickly feel at home.
  5. The home you dream of: Moving to a new home you can make your own, or extend and improve to make it exactly as you want it to be.
  6. A home for your family’s future: Planning for your future as you family grows, or your children move on to their own new adventures.
