Most people have dreams of travelling around the world. However, most people also have responsibilities such as jobs, mortgages and properties that they can’t simply up and leave. In the last few years however, there has been an increase in the number of people who are making the decision to sell all their stuff and go live the life of a nomad – if just for a couple of years.
This is mainly due to the increase in the amount of jobs that can be done from anywhere in the world as long as there is a computer and internet connection involved. If you are one of the lucky few that has this kind of job, then you are much closer to realising your dream than you think you are.
But if you have a full time job that you can’t just pack up and leave, then it can be hard to take the step into the unknown. There are two ways to finance travelling to another country: You can either look for an expat job in that country, such as teaching English, or you can sell your property in order to finance your travels and you won’t have to worry about getting a job on your trip.
The first obvious reason for selling your property before travelling is to finance your adventure. Life as a traveller is generally cheaper than life at home, depending on where you go of course, and the money that you make from selling your house, car and possessions will likely fund you for a few years.
Travelling is meant to be relaxing and stress-free and if you have any property left back home then it will give you something to worry about and you won’t be able to completely unwind. By selling your property you are ensuring that you have no ties left to worry about when you are away and it eliminates the chance of you having to pay to fix something that has gone wrong while you are away.
Selling your home to travel is a great way to fund your adventures. You need to make sure that you work with a great company and agent to make sure that you get the highest value on your home that is possible.
