A guide to upsizing house

As your family grows, there comes a point when upsizing is the only option – especially if your new arrival is already on the way.

Moving to a larger home can be a challenge; as well as organising the relocation of your current belongings, you’re likely to need new furniture to fill the space, so timing is crucial to ensure your new goods are delivered in time for the move.

 

What should I consider before upsizing?

 

  1. Why do you need more space? Have a plan and find a home that works to it… Do you need more bedrooms for an expanding family? A bigger living room? Garden? Before you begin your house-hunt, write a list of must-haves and prioritise them.

 

  1. Think realistically! Have your current house valued before you start looking for your next property as it will give you a clearer idea of what you can actually afford.

 

  1. Consider the surroundings – If you are starting a family or already have young children, properties close to playgrounds, shops and schools can be a big advantage. Check out the local school and nursery performance reports and catchment areas before you buy.

 

  1. Budget for the furnishings – It goes without saying that a larger home will require more furniture to fill it. Measure your current furniture to check it will fit, otherwise you’re going to need to replace it as well as potentially buying more to fill any additional rooms.
