How Do You Know When It's Time To Move?4/29/2019
Most people dread the thought of moving. Yet those same people love it when they move. Why? Most likely it’s the emotional attachment and the nostalgia for a beloved home. It’s understandable, but yet a home that just doesn’t fit your needs any longer can make even the most loved home uncomfortable.
Are you wondering if it’s time to move? Here are six telltale signs that you should consider when thinking of putting the “for sale” sign up in your front yard.
Your Home is Too Small
One of the most common signs is that you’ve outgrown your home. Has your family size grown? A newborn, an adult child returning to the home, or even a parent moving in can make your home feel too small for your growing family.
Your Home is Too Large
Life changes! Empty-nesters often find the home too large when the kids have all moved out. Is the maintenance becoming too much? Or do you want to have more time to travel and relax? These can all be factors for feeling that your home is too large.
Your Home is Too Expensive
Are you spending all your extra cash making repairs, or do you want major upgrades to suit your lifestyle? Has your finances changed due to retirement, loss of job, or loss of a loved one? If so, it may be time to move to a less expensive home that will fit your needs.
The Neighborhood is Losing Value
Neighborhoods do change overtime. If the homes in your nieghborhood are declining in value, you may want to consider a move.
Change in the Weather
Are you finally tired of shoveling snow? Is the heat and humid too much for you to handle? A change in climate could be the right move.
Change is Good
The last great reason to move is to try something new. Different style or location, or if the home isn’t making you happy any longer, it may be time to move. Do you want to be closer to family and friends? Change can be exciting, leading to new adventures and new opportunities!
