If you are thinking of upsizing your Brooklyn home there is a lot of things to consider. There are plenty of reasons, your family could be growing, or you want a better lifestyle. Maybe you want to move into a neighborhood that only offers upsize-style homes. Moving to Brooklyn, to a bigger place, is very exciting but it’s also very scary because you are taking on more responsibilities, potentially more debt, and obviously a lot more maintenance. Determining a reason for upsizing is a crucial step, as you have to take into consideration what are you leaving behind, what will you miss and what will you gain by this move.

Steps and tips on upsizing your Brooklyn home

Before you embark on this journey, make sure to get all your facts straight. Gather as much information as possible and don’t miss out on some of the crucial steps before you actually move:

  • evaluate your decision
  • plan your move

Avoid rushing into any decision. Take your time to evaluate how you’re using your current home and what was it missing before making your choice. Don’t do it in a hurry and without proper planning to reduce relocation stress. Make sure that you are not ignoring long-term factors. You maybe have a large family now, but a couple of your kids might move out and go to college, or move out and start their own families, so making a decision now for the size of your family will change in the future.

Prepare for financial challenges

When you’re upsizing you’re also upgrading your lifestyle. The maintenance jump is something to consider. If you decided to upgrade to a bigger condo, how much more is your maintenance in the new place potentially than your last place? Will you get a private elevator up to your place or do you have to share elevators- these are all the things to think about. Some might sound like regular day-to-day questions, but it can really make all the difference in your budget.

Think about how much is it going to cost to run the airconditioning in 5,000 square feet rather than 2,000 square feet, or how much will the heating cost. If you’re buying a standalone home ask if the landscaping is included in your maintenance because this is something that can be very costly. You will also have to include moving and storage Brooklyn companies fee, and we warmly suggest you use their skills, as it will make your move a breeze!

Change of furniture

Typically speaking, if you’re upsizing your Brooklyn home, you’re going to want bigger furniture for different reasons. You might want larger furniture that fits the rooms better. Maybe you want something a little newer and more updated. Consider doing a tag sale, or a yard sale for your current furniture. This way you can even recover some of the money that otherwise you know you’d be losing. If you find it difficult to organize a sale while packing and moving to a new home, think about New York storage facilities where you can safely store pieces of furniture until you decide on your next steps.
