“GO” PROS:– A bigger/smaller/newer/more stylish home etc… assuming a suitable, affordable replacement home can even be found, AND secured, within catchment AND BUDGET?
“GO” CONS:– family life disruption, packing, stress of finding the elusive “new” home, Can you stomach a longer commute from a greenfield estate? Boom despair as prices skyrocket, rushed decisions, offers rejected, massive re- financing, versus staged renovation cost!
“STAY” CONS cost of fixing the family home eg. Dated appearance, need a home office work from home, bathroom, swimming pool etc. The owner and builder need to find a work around/solution and cost these.
“STAY” PROS good neighbour’s, familiar shops, public transport and schools, proximity to family/ kid’s friends, pet friendly established garden?” Can a price be put on these?
