Ready to move on to bigger and better? Whether you need more space, have a growing family, or finally have the funds to buy the home of your dreams, upsizing usually happens for a great reason.
If you’re thinking about selling to upsize your home, I’d be happy to help! But first, here’s what you should know.
Make Sure You Can Afford It
Before you list your current home, double check with your lender to make sure that upsizing is financially possible. A bigger home will mean a bigger mortgage; meeting with your mortgage advisor will help you figure out how much more you can afford, and help you get pre-approved.
Establish a Realistic Budget
Upsizing your home won’t just increase your square footage and monthly mortgage payments, it will always require a lot more upkeep. From heating and utilities to lawn maintenance and new space-appropriate furniture, there are plenty other increases in costs. Establishing a realistic monthly budget before you search will help you find a great home that fits your needs and finances even faster.
Buy for the Long Run
If you’re upsizing to a larger family home, you’re probably planning to stay there for a while. While buying a bigger home with the latest upgrades is exciting, be sure to approach it with a long-term mindset, making sure that will tick off all the right boxes as the years go on. Ask yourself: Is there enough room to grow? Are there highly-rated schools nearby? What’s the neighbourhood like?
