If you are thinking of selling your home because, for example, you need more space, you may want to compare the costs of selling your home with the cost of adding an extension, doing a loft conversion or converting the basement into an extra living area. These renovations can even add value to your home.
If you still decide that a sale is the right thing for you, you should be wary of property prices in the housing market. While it is very difficult to predict whether the market is likely to increase or decrease in value, you can speak to an estate agent or property valuer to ascertain recent trends and selling prices in your area.
Depending on your circumstances, you might be better off renting your home rather than selling. For further information you can read our legal guide, Renting property.
