So you’ve been a homeowner now for several years and it’s time to move onto your next home. 

Typically we move every 7 years to a new home and this can be or a variety of reasons such as, 

  • Starting a family- so the need for more bedrooms or to be closer to schools
  • Upsizing due to higher income and equity- moving out of that 1 bed flat you started out in
  • Relocating for work- cut down your commute by being closer to work
  • Downsizing, now the kids have left why not release that equity back to yourself and have a smaller property to maintain
