If your situation requires you to move and sell your home I suggest you consider what options are open to you before selling your home.
Some of the questions you could ask are:
1. What is the real value of my home
2. How much equity do I have
3. Are there any mortgage redemption charges
4. Do I believe house prices will continue to grow
5. Do I understand how some properties make investors an income
6. Are there any tax incentives if I keep the property and sell in the future when the value has increased
7. Where can I get reliable honest advice
