Jay’s though of the week #2

“Five frogs are sitting on a log. Four decide to jump off. How many are left?


There are still five – because there’s a difference between deciding and doing.”

Where is the best place to start when planning to move? Maybe this is not as blindingly obvious as it seems. Too often people start the process and half way through stall or stop completely because they realise they haven’t approached the process from the right angle. I have only ever been an estate agent so in over thirty five years of helping people move, I have the experience to guide my clients when it comes to deciding if the time is right.

There are four questions you should ask yourself:

What will I miss? These could be things you’ve taken for granted such as good neighbours, great pub in walking distance, proximity to family.

What don’t I like about my current home? There is not much point in moving, especially with the cost of move being so high, if you don’t ensure you have improved your overall situation.

Will moving change my life for the better? This combines the two questions above but is a check and balance to making sure you’re moving for the right reasons.

Is it practical to move? These are all the things associated with a move. Affordability, schools, timing and should come once you’ve satisfied yourself on the above.

Once you’ve read this I am sure you will think all this was self-explanatory but it sometimes helps to have it laid out. Hope it helps.
