Now that you have put your house on the market, where are you going to next? It is vital that you know your next move. Will you rent, buy, stay with friends/family? However before you can start looking at potential next purchases, you need to know what you can afford.
Will the sale of your house pay off your mortgage and provide a deposit? Will you be able to afford to buy outright without a mortgage? You will need to answer these questions, in order to move forward. You can try to assess and answer these questions yourself or you can seek advice from our financial adviser.
