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 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 home.
Is it time to move?... Here are 4 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 which 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 favourite 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 neighbourhood is selling, it may be a sign that it’s the perfect time for you to do the same.
