Note that you do not have every detail specified about of each concurrent step at this point of the journey, but just a broad understanding of your objectives. 

Plans also need to be flexible and adaptable to take advantage of opportunities and navigate unexpected challenges. Therefore, the Initiate step should gather core data and help define your overall objectives in making the move. So at the end of the day you end up where you want to be.

  • Why are you making the move, or is there any way to achieve your objective without selling your home.
  • Determine your general equity by identifying amounts owed on any mortgage or liens and comparing to what homes are selling for in your neighborhood.

  • Where will be the optimal place to move next? Locally, regionally, nationally or internationally?
  • Who will the move impact and how. Consider all members of the household including kids & pets.
