Find out the profit you’ll make on your current home

Of course, a big component of being able to afford a bigger property is how much profit you’ll be able to get from your existing property. Furthermore, this could determine how much of a down payment you’ll be able to put down on the property of your dreams, and in turn, affect what your mortgage repayments will be. Moreover, the more money you are able to save the better, especially if you plan to reinvest it into the further growth of your business.

Find your new home

Once you have a reasonable estimate of your budget for your new home, it’s time to begin your home search. It’s wise to assess local market conditions before searching for a home. You want to understand factors beyond home price such as local schools and climate to make the best choice possible.

Establish a moving budget

Here the emphasis is on moving because there will be a lot of variables to consider and plan for from when the moving process starts to the little steps in between to get your home office move-in ready and then continuing on as your business grows from strength to strength. From a moving budget perspective, you’ll need to take into account moving expenses, decor expenses, hiring someone to help set up your home office for you as well as the cost of disruption associated with moving your current business over to your new property.

Up your business acumen

As you work through your move, you may decide that you want to improve your business savvy. As you are looking at the options available you may decide that pursuing a business degree is worth your while. Fortunately, that’s easier than ever for a business owner with the aid of flexible scheduling online. You can work toward a degree in accounting, management, or marketing when it’s amenable to your schedule, even as you continue to operate your business.

Establish your business in a new state

 

Assuming you are moving across state lines with your business, you’ll need to ensure you comply with all requirements for operating a business in your new state. Fortunately, it’s easy to start an LLC with the help of a formation service. They can walk you through all the major steps to getting set up, including all the filing requirements. Best of all, they can even file all the paperwork for you, making the process affordable, simple, and straightforward.

Insure your home and business

 

Be sure that you’ve planned your insurance coverage appropriately for your new home. It’s important to investigate different plans and coverage offerings to ensure that both your home and business are adequately insured. You can compare various home insurance offerings if you’re looking for options. Read up on each policy’s details to find out what is and isn’t covered.

Making your upsized upscaled dream office a reality

 

As far as your dream office goes, you’ll need to ensure that it meets your minimum requirements, especially if you are going to be doing the bulk of your business there. Besides having the right equipment and office furniture in there, you’ll also want to ensure it’s inspiring at the very least.

Therefore, don’t hesitate to incorporate a bit of personality into the room if you don’t want your typical standard office look by staying away from the more traditional corporate color scheme. Also, make sure the home office is big enough for all that’s required of it as well as what’s to come, such as for example a larger space to store inventory to be able to fulfill expected demand or a separate space that serves as an archive of sorts to store excess paperwork and important documents, etc. You’ll also want to ensure your new office space has enough electrical outlets, is compatible with Wi-Fi, has ample natural light coming through, etc.

Perhaps you’ve always envied the look of customized wallpaper and think it would make a great addition to your new office. If this is the case, you could find custom wallpaper easily online. For example, the peel-and-stick option is excellent if you want the option of moving it around if the first try at positioning it doesn’t work out the first time.

In summary, upsizing your home to cater to your growing business is super exciting as essentially you’ll be getting a bigger home as a result of your booming business — which is a definite win-win any day!
