Advantages of upsizing your property
Upsizing by moving to a larger house or flat can have several advantages, including making your property more valuable if you eventually decide to sell it.
Upsizing your property: three common questions and answers
You might have questions about upsizing, whether you’re selling a home to move into a bigger property, or whether you’d like to sell an upsized property. Here are three top queries:
✅ Why does upsizing generally cost more in the long run?
Because moving to a larger property naturally means that you will be using more utilities like water and electricity, as well as increased bills for general maintenance and upkeep. Council tax bills also tend to be higher for bigger houses. If you have any financial concerns you should calculate these cost increases before upsizing.
✅ Does upsizing only refer to getting a house with more rooms?
Not necessarily. It’s possible that some people might consider that they are upsizing if their existing home doesn’t have a garden but then they move to a house of the exact same size except it has a garden. Generally upsizing refers to scaling up the overall size and scope of a property, which also includes the total square footage of your home.
✅ What is the main reason that people typically upsize?
We often hear from homeowners that the reason they’ve decided to upsize to a larger house or flat is because their family has grown – either because they got married or they’re expecting children. Having a bigger property with more rooms means a less-stressful living experience because no-one will feel cramped into a small space.
