Understand clearly why you are selling.
Do you need more space for a growing family? Maybe selling and moving is going to be harder than extending your current home, particularly if you have great neighbours in a great street that is close to parks and schools.
If you are moving for lifestyle or career change reasons, have you considered renting your current property instead and leveraging any equity to assist with any new purchase?
If you plan on using an agent, be careful of disclosing your real motives for selling because they could use this in the future when the time comes to accepting offers from buyers.
Yes, this may sound cynical, however it pays to be cautious when disclosing your motives to all parties.
The fact is that you and your family are the only people who need to know the true reasons for selling.
An agent’s role is to get you the best possible price for your property. That’s it. Nothing more.
