So you've enjoyed your home for a number of years now but lately you've been thinking it is time to upsize for a number of reasons. It could be that you just need the extra space or perhaps you have built enough equity to upgrade to something with more land value. Upsizing to a larger property is a major milestone for many home owners. Can you relate to these Upsizers?
REASONS TO UPSIZE...Can You Relate?
A GROWING FAMILY
This family of three loved their Burnaby condo. But with the couple's 4-year old boy soon starting school, they had a lot to think about. They needed a place with a yard, close to a good school, and more bedrooms for a second child. They were able to find just what they needed by going further East to Coquitlam and getting a house with a downstairs suite as a mortgage helper...oh and bonus, the house has an awesome view!
INVESTING IN LAND
This young family had lived in their condo for a number of years and wanted to see if they had enough equity to upsize to a house with a large yard. They wanted to grow their family and have a safe place for their kids to play. With the price of houses sky-rocketing in the Greater Vancouver area, they wanted to invest in property with good land value before prices got too unaffordable.
BUILD A SNOWMAN
Could "to build a snowman" be a reason to upsize? Or what about "to build a tree house"? Well these are all things that this family of four have been longing to do on their own property. After living modestly in a condo, they saved enough to upsize into a large home with a 10,000 sq ft lot, space for a piano so the kids can start music lessons, and a spacious recreation room. The entire family agrees that their new home can last a lifetime....even generations.
LATEST TESTIMONIAL FROM AN UPSIZER
Persistence and Negotiating Skils Are Second to None
“I remember the day when I was sitting with John with a counter-offer in front of me. My wife and I really wanted this house, and we did not want to lose the offer. John stayed late into the evening negotiating on our behalf. His persitence and negotiating skills are second to none.”
