Is your current home starting to burst at the seams, or are you simply tired of feeling like you’re in a cramped space? If you’re looking to make an upgrade, you’ve likely got a few questions. Below are answers to some of the more common questions individuals have asked about moving to a larger, more spacious home.
Can I Afford to Make This Move?

Should I Buy First, or Wait?
Another common question is whether or not one has to wait until their current home is sold before moving in to a new one. While the prospect of buying and moving quickly is certainly exciting, it’s important to ensure that you won’t suffer a lengthy gap between buying your new home and selling your old one. If you need to sell your current home and you’re unsure about how long the process might take or how much demand there is in your area of Raleigh or Cary, give our team a call and can advise you on your sale.
When Should I Buy New Furnishings?
When you move into a larger home you may find that it feels a bit cavernous as your current furnishings are more suited to your smaller previous house, condo or apartment. However, don’t rush out and immediately buy all new furniture to try to fill out your space. Give your family some time to settle in to the new home, as they may have some ideas as to how they want to fill some of the empty spaces. You may also discover that a more minimal approach actually suits the new home a bit better, especially if it’s a newer home or one with high ceilings and a large, sprawling floor plan.
How Can I Make This Move Easier?
Moving is rarely a proverbial ‘piece of cake’, and you’re going to want to minimize the stress so you can focus on the excitement of being in a new home. Contract a professional moving team to handle the packing and moving of your items so that you aren’t struggling with rental trucks and driving all over the Triangle trying to get your furniture to your new home. If your old home has yet to be sold, working with a professional home staging team will help to draw in buyers and get your sale closed that much quicker.
