Don’t Move Home Before You Read This

Many of us have considered putting our houses on the market. If absence makes the heart grow fonder, then familiarity breeds boredom. The same can be said for your house – spending so much time in one area can lead to a very critical viewpoint on very many imperfections within a building, and we can become obsessed enough with what we deem as flaws, that we can often hastily put a house on the market without thought for the complications of doing so.

There are multiple reasons why putting a house on the market can be a nightmare – so before you do so, check out our reasons to hold onto what you’ve got.

Solicitors are expensive, and an ordeal. Who wants to deal with matters such as land property searches, deed searches, and land registry fees all over again? No-one. With the time a solicitor takes to complete a transaction firmly between 4 and 12 weeks, moving can feel like an absolute ordeal, even when things go right. When things go wrong, it can be (even more) costly, and stressful all around.

Estate Agents Fees - Generally considered no joke, estate agents fees are yet another cost associated with moving, and can run into the thousands upon thousands. There’s no preparing for them – once they hit, it’s always dismaying and can be the difference between being able to do what you want with your new home, and not.
