If you’re looking to upsize, you need to consider a number of factors that include:

  1. Setting realistic expectations. We all want to improve our lifestyles, but you need to ensure you can afford the price range of the home and the area you want.
  2. Selling your house at the right time in order to avoid owning two homes and having to pay two sets of bills. They can really add up, especially during winter or at property tax time.
  3. Finding somewhere to live if there is a gap between closing times.
  4. Financing your new home. While the sale of your first home will help you pay for your second, it only works if the timing is right.
  5. Ensuring your current home is ready to sell. This is really important if you've been living in the same home for a long time. People may have different needs and expectations for homes than when you made your purchase.
