Will 2020 be the year you move to the home of your dreams? Time can easily pass us by without us taking any action, so if you truly want to make your dreams come true, it’s time to make a plan. This is the perfect time of year to get a plan in place for next year, with all the steps you need to make the move to a new future. A good plan will save you time and money, and ensure your move goes smoothly. Here are some points to consider when putting your own 1-year plan together…
Assess your finances
When you know how much you can afford to spend on your new home, it makes narrowing down the search much easier. There are several aspects to this. You should make a note of any savings you have that you can put towards your new property, but also bear in mind any expenses you’ll need to take care of along the way. If you’re planning on selling your current property, then it’s well worth finding out what it is worth by getting it valued. Then you should speak to a mortgage broker and find out just how much you could borrow. Armed with all this information, you should have a realistic picture of the value of the property you can buy.
Pinpoint your new location
The more specific you can be about where you’d like to live, the easier it will be to search for suitable properties. So, start big, and narrow it down. Choose your country, choose your town or city, choose your favourite area, then perhaps you have a street you love, or you’d like to be close to a particular school, shops, a bus station or the beach?
