Upsizing: Tips for Making the Transition to a Larger Home

Transitioning from a small home or apartment into a larger home can be tricky, but upsizing to a new True home in Charlotte doesn’t have to be. Here are five questions you need to ask yourself before purchasing a larger new home in Charlotte or anywhere else in the Carolinas:



  1. What are your goals?

Have you thought about why, specifically, you’d like more space? Is it because you’re a new or growing family? You need more room for hobbies or to work from home? More room for friends and family to visit? Depending on why you need more space is integral to deciding which kind of new home in Charlotte you should buy.

  1. What kind of space do you need?

Upsizing isn’t necessarily about a home’s total square feet, but about how the home is laid out. Maybe instead of a study or a cavernous great room, you need bedrooms that are more spacious. Or instead of a formal dining room, a bonus room or media room might be better for your family’s wants and needs. True Homes offers flexible rooms and spaces on their new homes in Greensboro and everywhere else, so you can get the right amount of space right where you want it.

  1. And will you actually use it?
    The idea of a large covered patio might sound great, but if your spouse has allergies or you prefer relaxing in front of the TV you might end up not even using that space. On the other hand, if you always take a nice, hot bath at the end of the week, it would probably be worth upgrading and enlarging the master bathroom. The point is, you shouldn’t just upsize, you should upsize with care. Before speeding through
  1. Run the numbers

Your mortgage isn’t the only number you need to keep in mind when upsizing. A larger home comes with many other associated costs including increased utilities, more time spent cleaning, higher property taxes—even paying for more furniture to fill the space with. Of course it helps to buy a new home in Charlotte that’s an incredible value—True Homes offers homes from up to 2,000 square feet with monthly payments starting from the $1,100s. Which means you can buy a new home in North Carolina that’s within your budget and you can ease your mind about being ‘house poor’ when all is said and done.

  1. What will the resale value be like?

Upsizing now can mean profit later if you choose your home and new home community in Charlotte wisely.

Odds are, no matter how much you love your new True home, you won’t live there forever. You might even find yourself downsizing a few years from now. And if you put yourself in your future home buyer’s shoes you’ll be better off in the long run. True Homes builds new homes in Charlotte and the Carolinas’ most desirable communities. Between the amenity-rich locations and the high quality homes True Homes provides, you’re more likely to get a better return on your investment in the future.
