Signs It's Time to Move
Time for a change? Whether you need to relocate for a job opportunity, or need to get away from your awful neighbors, there are many reasons why it may be time to find a new home. Last year, Moving.com published an article titled “11 Signs It’s Time to Move” in which they identified some of the most common reasons people contemplate moving. Here are a few of our favorites:
Things are getting tight
Look around. Are things getting a bit tight in your household? If so, it may be time to move. One of the most obvious tell-tale signs that it’s time to move is when you no longer have room for anything. Maybe you had a baby. Maybe an aging parent is moving in with you. Maybe you need an extra guest room. Or maybe you just can’t turn around without tripping over all your stuff. Whatever the reason – when space is tight, you know it’s time to move to a bigger place.
You’re ready for an upgrade
If you’re ready to live in a nicer neighborhood or in a nicer home, it’s probably time for an upgrade. Many features, such as central air conditioning and heat, updated appliances, a modern kitchen, more storage space, a swimming pool, built-ins, and a larger yard may not come with the home you currently own. And while you could renovate and make some improvements, there’s a good chance that: A – those renovations will take longer than originally expected (they always do); B – it’s going to end up costing you more than the original estimate (it always does); and C – you’ll run into hiccups along the way, such as walls that are unable to come down or piping problems. Also, there might not be much you can do to change some of your home’s current features (e.g. a small backyard).
Job opportunity in a new city
Moving for a job is one of the most common (and most exciting) reasons for relocating to a new city. Maybe you’re hoping to accelerate your career. Or maybe you’re moving to the city that fits your specific industry. Whatever the reason, moving for work remains a regular occurrence in America. In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, moving for a new job or a job transfer is the top job-related reason for moving.
There’s too much empty space in your home
Hearing crickets in your home? It might be time to downsize. For the empty nesters, leaving a large home filled with memories can be a hard decision. But remember – less really is more. By downsizing, decluttering and moving to a home that better suits your current needs, you’ll be able to spend more time doing what you love and less time cleaning an empty house.”
