5 signs that tell you it's time to sell your home


In the current property market, it's not uncommon for homeowners to experience a bit of price envy, having seen their neighbours achieve an excellent sales result for their home. Here at Buxton, we know that a great sales experience is not just about price outcome but the opportunity to begin a fresh chapter of your life in a new home.

In this blog we take a dive into 5 signs that it might be time to make the move and start thinking about finding your new dream home.


Growing family

Kids become teenagers in the blink of an eye. And as that happens, the need for a larger home grows. If you're feeling the squeeze, listening to the kids argue about sharing a bedroom, need space for your home office or wanting some outdoor entertaining space, it might just be time to upsize.

Time to downsize

On the other hand, when your kids have all grown up and have flown the coop, some family homes feel empty, and maintenance tasks you used to handle easily now feel like a real chore. Maybe some rooms sit empty for weeks or months. If this sounds like your home, consider downsizing to something that's easier to maintain, has lifestyle benefits and which you can lock up and leave securely when you go on longer holidays. 

Need a new location

Have you recently got a new job in a new area? Or living by the beach is calling your name? Maybe you want to be closer to your kids’ school, anything to cut back the commute! All are excellent reasons for finding a new home. Your new location may offer new lifestyle advantages and more convenience.  


Your house just doesn’t feel like home anymore

We can all get bored and sometimes our houses just don’t feel like our dream home anymore, and that’s ok! Some owners feel they've improved their home to the point where there's nothing more to do and become restless. Others want to be closer to the bright lights or hanker for more trees. It is ok to crave a fresh start in a new home, remember, your house is someone else’s dream home!

You've got the funds

Property is a great investment, and if you have equity in your current home, it's a legitimate strategy to climb the property ladder to build your wealth. Your primary residence is one of the biggest tax-free investments you can own.
