So it’s going to be twins, congratulations, it’s great, one of the best experiences life can throw at you, but what if this has put your plans for the house into chaos, it’s just not going to be big enough. Well I guess you need to look at upsizing your property but don’t worry it’s not as bad as it seems, let’s look a few pointers that will help prepare you for the big move.
Issues Affecting The Current Kids
It can be a great time but also a stressful and changing time when kids find out they are going to be a big brother or sister to the new arrivals, this can be even more intimidating when they find out it’s going to be twins and then even on top of that they are told they are having to move house. They will have to change their room and neighbours, they may have very good friends they’ve built up so tact is key when preparing them for the big move. You can prepare them for the move and this is key to allow them to know as much as they can, show them the new area and what the house will look like and be prepared for any upset as this will be natural.
Look At What You Can Afford & Where
Where you can afford to upsize to is a key question as if you need more rooms you may need to limit the areas you can buy a property in. It’s easy to check what you might be able to borrow by using a quick online mortgage comparison, if you check the Money Expert website you’ll swiftly get an idea of what budget you have to play with and can plan accordingly.
The Actual Move Itself
When it comes to the actual moving date it’s good to be organised and know what you are going to be doing with the kids and family. It’s good also to plan when to move, it’s probably best to avoid late pregnancy or early months if possible so it might be a good idea to get this done as early as possible. If you have a plan you’ll find everything easier, make sure you have any smaller kids looked after and allow older ones to feel involved by allocating suitable tasks to ensure they stay safe and don’t get in the way too much.
Setting Up The New House
Finally once you’re in you’ll be wanting to get the new house set up. How much work this is will really depend on what type of property you have purchased. If you need a lot of decorating or work then plan for the time for this. There are many other thing to think of as well such as will the furniture from the old place fit in and work in the new place, if not clear it out before it comes in to the new place.
