Is now the right time for you to move?

You've been thinking about it for a while, and now you're pretty sure that now is the right time to move. But before you start packing boxes and lining up movers, take some time to consider these three questions:

What's happening in your life?

If you're just starting out, the idea of packing up and moving may seem like a distant dream. But there are plenty of reasons why it could be right for you. Maybe you've gotten a new job or switched careers, or maybe your partner is relocating for work and you're following them across the country. Or perhaps it's time to move on from your current home—maybe it's too small for your family now, or perhaps someone has died who was close to you and now the place holds painful memories. There are countless instances when moving can be good: if there’s something in particular that has been weighing on your mind lately that makes it feel like an appropriate time for change and growth, consider whether now would be an ideal opportunity to relocate.

What is your financial position?

  • Does your job offer a relocation package? If so, do you want to take it?

  • Are there other ways to get money for moving costs, such as loans or grants?

  • Do you have enough money saved up for a down payment on a house in your new location?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, then now might not be the right time for you to move.

Could you improve your Ashford home instead?

While you may be excited about the prospect of moving to a new home, it's important to remember that there are other ways to improve your current home. Making upgrades could increase its value and help you sell more quickly. It can also make your house safer, more energy-efficient and easier for you or others in your household to access. So before selling up, consider these five ways in which improving your existing property could benefit you:

It seems like a good time to move, but there are a number of things to consider first.

  • What’s the current Ashford market like in terms of price, availability and affordability?

  • What do you want from your home? Will it provide enough space for your family and their needs now and in the future? Is it somewhere that you can see yourself living for many years to come - or is it just a stepping stone on the way up (or down) the property ladder? Consider also how long you plan on living at this address; if you want to move within 10 years then perhaps renting would be more suitable than buying. And finally, consider how much money will be tied up in a property before making any decisions - especially if there’s no mortgage protection insurance policy in place!

Moving is a big decision, and it's important to weigh all the factors before jumping into it. The best way to make sure you're making the right choice is by asking yourself some questions. First, think about what's going on in your life right now—what are your goals? Second, consider how much money you have saved up for the move, and whether moving will affect those savings (i.e., if you'll need more money than expected). Finally—and this might seem counterintuitive at first—consider whether or not there are any ways that improving your current home could save money in both short-term expenses like repairs or upgrades as well as long-term investments like home value appreciation over time; after all!
