Sometimes we don’t have much choice about selling our home and buying another. Circumstances, such as a job relocation, may have made that choice for us.
So how do you make that kind of decision?
There are, of course, many reasons to make a discretionary move. Usually, those reasons fall into one of two categories: need and want.
You may need to find a new home, for example, because you’ve outgrown your current property. Perhaps you have a growing family and require more space. Maybe you’re doing more entertaining and need a larger backyard with a more spacious deck. It could be that the commute to work is arduous and you need to move to a place that’s closer.
Those “needs” may motivate you to move, but sometimes a “want” plays an important role, too.
If you’re thinking of making a move, take a moment to write down a list of your needs and wants. Seeing them on paper will help make the decision easier.
