New Year’s resolutions present an opportunity to accomplish goals that we have long set out to complete, but the problem is that it can be hard to make them stick.
The best way to make sure that you keep your resolutions this year is to set out a plan and start making those first steps towards your goals.
Property resolution #1 – Buying a new home
Will 2018 be the year you buy your dream home? Buying a property is a major financial decision so the first step towards purchasing a new home will be to organise your finances.
Chat to lenders and mortgage brokers to get an idea of what you can afford to borrow and organise mortgage pre-approval.
Once you know what you can afford you can start your property hunt and before you know it you’re likely to find the perfect home for you.
Property resolution #2 – Selling up
A new year is a great time to assess your needs and ask if it’s time for a change of scenery.
If you’re thinking about selling up and moving somewhere new then start moving forward by getting a property appraisal from a Mudgee real estate agent.
A property appraisal can help you get a better idea of what your home will sell for, which you can then use to work out what you might be able afford elsewhere.
Property resolution #3 – Improving your current abode
Renovating a property is a great way to capitalise on the home you have, and sometimes a better option than moving.
If you’re not sure where to begin then talk to local builders and tradespeople to find out what your options are. You don’t need to use the services of the first person you talk to, in fact it’s often better to get a few opinions and quotes before deciding what is best for your property.
Be careful of going down the DIY route, while it may seem like a great way to save money, it can cost you more in the long run. Save the tough jobs for the experts to ensure your asset is in good hands.
