Work To Live Don’t Live To Work: Sell Your Home and Become a World Traveller

It is getting easier and easier to travel around the world and not a day goes by that we don’t hear of people who have packed up everything they have, sold their homes and gone off on some exotic adventure- normally to an island paradise.

This has become more accessible and affordable due to the amount of people who are now able to work remotely from anywhere in the world, as long as they have their laptops and an Internet connection.

 

If you want to become a world traveller and adventure extraordinaire, then the first thing that you need to do is to start thinking about your funding.

One of the best ways to get the money to for travelling is to sell your house.

The process of selling your home can be stressful and overwhelming, to make it a bit easier, follow the step-by-step guide below.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Selling Your Home

 

Establishing How Much Your Home is Worth

Your first two questions should be: What is the cost to sell my home? And how much is my home worth? This will give you a budget to work with when selling the house and estimation on how much you should be getting for your house.

 

Use various estate agents to value your house and have a look at the prices of similar homes in the local property sections. These should give you a good indication of what your asking price should be.

 

Estate Agent or Alone

 

You can cute out the agents fees by selling your house on your own, however you will do well to remember that agents come with a wealth of knowledge, clients and experience and they could prove very helpful.

 

Get Your Home Ready

 

Remember that your home is going to sell on an appearance basis and you therefore need to make sure that you make it look the best that it can for anyone coming to view it.

 

Receive Offer

 

Your estate agents will advise you on any offers made, and you will eventually pick one that is the most suitable to your asking price.

 

From here on out you should get a solicitor involved in the final processes of renegotiation, surveys and contract completion.

Selling your house is one of the best ways to fund any travels that you have planned, and not only does it give you the necessary money- it also frees you from any ties and responsibilities that may hold you back on your adventures.
