Selling Your Home? What's Next for You?
So you've decided to sell your home. Now, what's your next step if your home sells? You have to consider where you are going to buy or rent next. Below are some factors to reflect on what's best for you and your family:
- What type of home are you looking for? Depending on what stage of life you're in, your needs will vary. If you are starting a family, you're probably hoping to have more room to expand. If you are retired and your kids are living on their own, you may want to downsize to a smaller home or condominium.
- What are you going to do with your belongings? If you can't move the contents of your old home into the new one, you'll need to come up with a plan. You can have a garage sale to get rid of unused items, donate household items or ask your family or friends if they would like anything.
- Should you port your mortgage? If you have an existing mortgage with a great rate, you may want to transfer it to your new purchase. Talk to your mortgage adviser for details.
- Who should you contact after you sell? You'll need to inform your billing companies, banks, government offices, magazine subscriptions etc of your new address.
