I have spent weeks being led to believe by my mortgage advisor I had the funds to move if I did this n that with my mortgage and could afford somewhere bigger. Whilst I'd easily get a bigger mortgage on my wages my outgoings don't match this. So I toned down my serach to bigger flats not houses and the more I go over the figures and having spoken to another mortgage advisor, the figures don't stack up at all. I'd really pinned my hopes on getting away from my sodding neighbours and living with a bit more space. The positive valuation on my flat was about the only good thing happening to me recently and even though I keep searching rightmove for a bargain I know realistically this won't happen. Especially when the bargains I am looking at undercut what I'd need to sell mine for. If people can get a bigger flat for less money why would they want to buy mine?! Hmph. I am a bit deflated about this now. Here goes another few years here and a potential huge hike in mortgage costs when my fixed rate runs out in a yr and a half. Wish I'd never bought this poxy flat. Yes I'd never have got on the market otherwise (100% mortgage) but frankly for the amount of mortgage/maintenance I pay I could rent a *** house. Hmph again and rant over.
