Are You Ready for A New Home?


Selling your family home is hardly ever about building your financial portfolio. For most of us, it’s usually a matter of necessity.
 
A growing young family or a changing lifestyle usually demands extra space. Maybe your kids are old enough now that they need separate rooms. If you have outgrown your living quarters — for whatever reason — it’s time to explore a move-up forever home.
 
How can you tell that it’s time to move? Here are four common scenarios:
 

1. You’ve had a change in family size.


 Whether someone is moving in or you have a baby on the way, you naturally need more space for more people. If you’re struggling to achieve functionality with your current setup, then you need a home with additional rooms.
 

2. Your DIY and design projects don’t happen — or they cost too much.


Maybe you bought your starter home intending to renovate it, but you underestimated how difficult it is to fix up a house. If your fixer-upper has become a money pit or a huge source of stress, it may be time to call it quits and seek greener pastures.


3. You find it difficult to entertain or have guests over.


If you have too little space to host or have few boundaries between your party and private space, it’s hard to entertain comfortably. A larger home that allows more freedom and possibilities for hosting will better align with your needs.
 

4. You spend all your time in other parts of town.


Imagine being closer to work and your favorite restaurants. Instead of wasting hours in your car, why not pick a home that’s close to everything you love?
 
And if everyone else in the neighborhood is selling, it may be a sign that it’s the perfect time for you to do the same.
