Well it certainly appears that the festive period is upon us! Time spent together as families often provides the time to talk and make decisions for the future. Sometimes this involves moving house, but how do you know that you're ready to make such a big change? My (too) many years experience at seeing potential Sellers has taught me that once the decision is made homeowners start to 'fall out of love' with their homes - psychologists would probably say this is some kind of defence mechanism, but if you are at a point where the quirks of your home are suddenly causing you irritation or there are bits that you know need doing but you are struggling to muster the inclination to do them, then it's probably time. Your home is usually your biggest financial asset, but it also usually an emotional purchase, and is therefore also an emotional sale!
