YOU CAN ACTUALLY AFFORD THE MOVE

Don’t get so carried away by the excitement of your next home that you forget to account for the cost of leaving your current one. Make sure you are financially ready to buy a home and know exactly how much you can spend on a house. Hiring professional movers? Save up cash to cover the cost of packing up and hauling your stuff away.

You should also invest a little to get your current place ready for prime time. Linda recommends focusing your home-improvement dollars on these areas:

  • Paint: “Paint is the number-one investment when upgrading,” she says.“Buyers love the look—and smell—of fresh paint.”

  • Curb appeal: You only get one chance to make a first impression. Linda suggests a three-pronged approach: “Plant flowers, trim shrubs, and paint the trim.”

  • Kitchen and bath: “You don’t need expensive appliances or countertops, but new faucets and fixtures go a long way,” she says.

Want a bonus tip that doesn’t cost a dime? Clear out the clutter. “Neat closets and tidy shelves make your home look larger!” Linda adds.

A good first step to seeing if you are ready to move is use our free home Evaluator to see what you can afford.
