The first question that will normally be asked among you and your family is why do you want to move? There are many reasons as to why you may want to buy a new home including:
a better location
good local schools
get on the property ladder
or something else; but make sure that whatever your priorities are, you need to remain focused on them when home-hunting.
Advisory Note: It is advised that you should consider your needs for at least the next 5 years as moving home is both costly and a big upheaval.
Also, it is important to think about what you are leaving behind. There are many questions and things to consider, such as:
Do you currently take anything for granted that your new location might not have?
Are the travel links any better than your current location?
Are you OK with the new distance to your job, family or friends?
Do you get more value for your money compared to your current location?
The above considerations are particularly poignant if you are looking at downsizing when buying a new home; Are you ready to live in a smaller home? Are you happy in a less popular area? Will downsizing free up enough money to justify expenses of moving?
