When is it the “Right” Time to Move?

When is it the “Right” Time to Move?

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!

My experience with Peter as sales agent was as good as I expected!

Peter was very clear in what I could expect from the sale of my property. He explained any difficulties which might occur, as well as all possibilities. His knowledge and handling of all matters involved was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other clients.

Excellent sales experience

Clear communication, helpful and always professional.
During the process of selling our home we felt supported.
The sale occurred more quickly and for the asking price so the presale assessment was very accurate.
Will be recommending Peter and his team to other people.
