Across the UK, families that are growing and adding tiny new tots as members of a growing brood need a little more space in which to laugh, play, and work. This article covers how to make moving to a larger family home stress free.
If the COVID-19 crisis has taught us anything about our living conditions, it’s that space — both to spend together, and to spend alone — is crucial to happiness and wellbeing.
If your family are looking to upgrade your living situation by moving to a larger abode, this article will also help you make some key decisions on the path to your eventual change of property.
Prepare To Sell
In order to buy a property, you need to sell your current one.
This means that if you’re expecting another child, and you and your partner thinks that now is the right time to move out of your current property and into another, you need to get out the paint brushes and look to make your current abode as pretty and well-maintained as possible.
Remember that every £1,000 that you’re able to add to the valuation of your home, making it sparkle in the eyes of potential buyers, is more cash that you’re able to put towards your next mortgage.
Take the time to tidy, deep clean, and get the right property agent on side before you take your home to the market.
Searching For A Larger Family Home
When you’re scouring the property market, you’ll always be looking for a combination of a great deal, and a great home.
You’ll want to be located close to schools, to your place of work, and to public transport links.
But you’ll also want a home that’ll accommodate your larger family, too.
Searching for a new home is an exciting process, but it’s important that you perform the due diligence on a property before you rush in to make an offer.
Talk with you solicitor about preparing correctly for the house purchase, and ensure you have a surveyor look around the house to spot any issues before you contact the seller.
Moving To A Larger Family Home
The final stage of your home purchase is organising the removal of your possessions from one home to the other with the help of professional movers.
This is a day of sea-change for your family, where you’re required to manage the organisation of your things and their packing into a removal lorry for your big move.
It can take weeks to plan your move, so it’s best to begin packing and planning as early as possible.
The key to a successful removal is the packing.
If you’re able to pack your boxes in good time and you’re confident that you’ll all have your furniture and your key possessions with you in your first night in your new home, then you’ll be able to rest easy in the knowledge that your removal will go off without a hitch.
You’re Now Ready To Move To A Larger Family Home
Moving your family to a new home is exciting, but it requires you to plan and organise immaculately.
That’s what the above tips aim to help with – ensuring your smooth move to a new, larger family home.
