Common Mistakes When Buying a Bigger Home

Upgrading to a bigger house can be a great blessing for many of us. However, there are some mistakes that you can avoid in this process. According to, below are the 6 most common errors that are made.

The first mistake you should avoid is rushing to buy a bigger home. If you are making a financial and personal commitment to upgrade to a bigger home and bigger mortgage, it is worth taking your time to find the right home. You will most likely live in the bigger house longer than your first home, so being patient in the search process can be helpful.

Another common error is underestimating or overestimating how much MORE space you need. Go through your current home and assess exactly what is missing or how much more square footage you need in each room. Not buying bigger than you need will save you money and not buying too small will keep you from having to move again.

Make sure you think about your long-term life plans when you are looking for a bigger home. Many buyers only think about the now and forget to consider the future. Future plans can be anything from having children or elderly parents living with you. You can even consider the possibility of a home office or enough car space for a soon-to-be driving teenager.

In the excitement of looking for a new home, many buyers undervalue the importance of securing financing. Looking for a bigger home without knowing what you can qualify for is a waste of time and can lead to disappointment.

Make sure you do not neglect your current home and keep up with the maintenance while you look for the new home. You never know how long it will take to find what you want, and you also want the home to be in good condition for when you want to sell.  

Buying a bigger home is already a big expense, not just for the mortgage but the utilities and taxes will be higher too. Take this into consideration when you buy new things for the new home or when you are decorating the new home. Many people who upgrade to a bigger “fancier” home get tempted into spending money on bigger fancier things, and realize they are overspending when it is too late.
