5 Ways You Know It’s Time for a New Home
Deciding to move to a new home is a big, important decision. It means listing your home, showing your home, selling your home, finding a new home, packing up and moving. It can be a long and stressful process. It can be, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right help and a commitment to seeing the process through to the end, the process of selling your home and buying another can be exciting and even fun.
Here are five signs that you are ready to move.
Is Your House Just Too Small?
That two-bedroom one bath was quaint and cozy when you first married. You turned that second bedroom into an office/storage space and, later, a nursery. It was the perfect size. Now, that your family has grown beyond three and you have acquired more things than you can easily store, the once cozy space feels more like a 10X6 cell.
Everyone needs their own space, and enough space is one of the keys to a happy life. Since it is difficult to make an existing home larger, buying a new home is the best way to have the space you and your family need.
Is the Neighborhood Just Not the Right Place Anymore?
When you bought your home, that neighborhood bistro was one of the best features. Now, your priorities have changed. You’ve had everything on the menu at that bistro and what was charming is now annoying. You are more concerned about safe streets and good schools rather than a vibrant nightlife.
Neighborhoods don’t change overnight. If you find that your priorities no longer match your neighborhood, it’s time to move to a new neighborhood.
Does the Thought of Renovating Make You Break Out in a Cold Sweat?
Maybe you bought that fixer upper with the honest intention of rehabbing it back to its former glory. You were going to redo the kitchen, retile the bathroom, and bring that scuffed hardwood floor back to shining glory. Unfortunately, life got in the way, or you realized the cost in both time and money would just be too much. Now, you look around at all the half-completed projects and down at that still scuffed up floor and shudder.
If you have discovered that you do not like the idea of renovating your home, moving to a finished, up-to-date home is your best option. Keep reading…
