Is it ever the right time to move? It can be such a headache, a possible financial drain and definitely a dizzying decision. But! With the market up, there are a few key factors to consider to know if it’s the right time to move for you, both financially and emotionally.

Moving can be an exciting prospect with great potential, and also an intense time of change and upheaval. Purchasing a home and everything that implies can hit you fast if you’re not careful, especially when it comes to balancing certain outcomes such as how much of a commute you’d like, what community life you’d enjoy being part of, and schools you prefer to be close to, parks or other crucial needs

But regardless of where you’d like to move to, how can you know if now is the right time to do so? After all, there will never be a ‘perfect time’ where everything seems absolutely promising and worthwhile, and you’ll never feel as if you have a total grip over if this is the best financial move undertaken right now, or if you were better off waiting six months for a more promising market.

There are a few variables you can use to decide your path forward. 

Current Home Condition

It might be that your home is in need of repairs, or that you are tired of dealing with certain maintenance issues, or maybe you just wish to find a home more ready to cater to your needs. New babies tend to make the house feel a bit cramped. Or retirees may want to move closer to those who have announced they are expecting or just want to scale down.

A Growing Market

A growing market is important to consider ahead of time. Right now, the property market is skyrocketing due to demand, so it may be a good time to consider selling even if that brings forward your plans a little bit. It might also be that reinvestment in your area is increasing house prices, or perhaps you just wish to take some time to properly scout areas worth investing in right now so that your funding can go further. Never divorce the need to move to a new home from a wise financial decision, often they can work in tandem to get you more.

Mortgage Potential

Finding the best mortgage quotes can depend on a range of factors including the service you use, but you’ll also find that as you move towards increased affordability, can offer a better deposit, or are willing to take on longer terms, the overall deal you get could totally dwarf those you’ve had in the past. It’s a good idea to check those quotes sporadically to see what kind of affordability you’re working with. Provided you move in the right direction and understand your purchasing needs, you may be entitled to more than you think.

Take your time and know your facts and you’ll be sure to move to a new house correctly and benefit from shrewd financial planning.
