Does it make sense to move up? The idea of moving up to a larger home can be an exciting prospect. But here are a few questions to ask yourself to make sure it is the right decision for you:
- First and most importantly, do you have sufficient income, to afford the additional costs such as higher mortgages? Maintenance? Property taxes? Insurance and moving costs?
- How much equity have you built up, in your current home?
- Want to be in a different school district?
- Or do you want to be closer to your job?
- Are you better off moving rather than remodeling your home?
- Do you need more room or just want a change of scenery?
- How do current interest rates compare to what you’ve been paying on your existing mortgage?
