Its a huge dilemma people face when they need more space.
The average house in Brentwood, Billericay, Basildon & Wickford at the moment is £409,000.
For argument purposes lets say you were selling your home at £320,000 which would incur fees….
* Selling Agent fee example 1% (£3200) or £600 with good Online Agent such as Urban Homes (personal recommendation following my own experiences)
* Legal fees Sell&Buy £1500
* Moving company £1000
* Stamp Duty of ‘AVERAGE house price as detailed is £10,450
* Legals (as above)
* Mortgage Arrangement fee £1500
(Note that Stamp Duty fees changed and should be reviewed on your next purchase)
Not forgetting monthly increases in regular expenses such as Home Insurance, Life Insurance, Utility, Council Tax and Mortgage etc.
Even a small redecoration or new bathroom refit and this house move will cost you over £20,000 and its very likely you’ll need more.
