When is it the “Right” Time to Move?

When is it the “Right” Time to Move?

  • Meg Georkas

We’ve all had the feeling of outstaying our welcome. Maybe at a sleepover or a weekend visit with friends. Staying with family over Christmas can be interesting or even as a young adult and getting the not so subtle hint that it’s time to find your own place to live.

Sometimes you can even feel like this in your own home. Home owners and renters alike know the feeling of “I think it’s time to move on”. There may not be a tangible reason; just an inkling that maybe something better, newer, bigger, smaller, easier or even harder (think renovation) could be around the corner or across the state.

So how do you know if you really need to move? Well let’s think about the obvious.

Have you run out of room? Could this problem be fixed by having a good clean up and a garage sale? Do you love your neighbourhood? Is it worth extending?

Is the house too big? When the kids have grown up and moved out and the bedrooms are empty should you sell or could this be a chance to earn some extra cash by renting out the extra rooms?

Is the house starting to fall down? Is it time for a major renovation and do you want to do it? Could it just need a facelift and some new landscaping?

Is the house no longer suitable for your health? That split level design was perfect when the kids were young but are you struggling with stairs now?

All these questions are discussed in our home regularly. At least once a month a conversation happens around our dinner table regarding selling and/or moving. Everybody has a strong opinion too. Do we want to sell? Not really, but it’s so much fun thinking about it and looking for the next possible address and it’s always good to be ready just in case!

High Quality & Exceptional Service!

Peter, Ali and the team at Hutchinson & Harlow were excellent to work with. We were provided with outstanding level of professionalism and service. Hutchinson and Harlow have a good understanding of the real estate market in Armidale and surrounding regions. Their sales and marketing approach was fantastic, attracting a lot of interest and providing us with a sale at the right price quickly. Ali was brilliant to deal with. She kept us will informed, catered to our needs and made selling the house a seamless experience.

Ali sold my investment property

Ali sold my investment property in April 2018. I would recommend Ali from H&H. H&H held regular open houses and were following up with all enquiries on the home.
