5 Signs It’s Time to Move!
Whether you’re running out of space, sick of your neighbors, or just ready to have the perfect home, here are some signs it’s time to make a change and move!
Room to Grow
Are things getting a bit tight in your household? One of the most obvious signs that it’s time to move is when you no longer have room for anything. Maybe you have started a family. Maybe you have an aging family member needs to move in or maybe you are constantly tripping over stuff. Whatever the reason – when space is tight, you know it’s time to move to a bigger place!
On the flip side, do you have too much unused space? Homeowners that find themselves with an empty nest usually have a tough time deciding to leave their home and all the memories. Less, however, really is more. Downsizing and moving to a smaller home will allow you to spend more time doing what you love on top of spending fewer dollars on taxes and energy consumption.
Sometimes, it is not an issue of space, but rather just a simple upgrade like a better neighborhood or nicer home. Maybe you are ready to ditch the starter home and own improved features like more storage space, updated appliances, a modern kitchen, and a larger yard. Sure, you could renovate the home you currently own, but you will have to chance that renovations could take longer than expected or cost more than the original estimate.
Live far away from work? The daily grind of fighting traffic is extremely stressful, and over time, it might be too much to handle. In response, many homeowners gladly pack their bags to move to a house closer to work resulting in less stress, more sleep, and a healthier version of themselves!
On the other hand, if you still find yourself working from home post pandemic, you might feel the need to upgrade your home office. You aren’t alone. In fact, 2020 saw a 16.8% increase in the number of listings that contain the word “office” when compared to last year. Buyers looking to make a move are looking for homes that offer home office space, and it was a big selling point in 2021 and beyond.
