Moving can be a hassle, but it can also be a fun and smart move if you have reached a time in your current home where relocation will be best. Start 2016 off by thinking about whether your time has come to make that necessary move and break out the moving boxes! Here are some telltale signs that may help you make the decision.
Empty Nest or Bursting at the Seams
Family size is a big reason people decide or need to move. Have your children recently moved out and started their own journey leaving you with empty rooms? If the rooms have been empty for months and you can’t decide what you need more, a sewing room or a home gym or a theater….it may be time to downsize. There is such a thing as too much house!
If you just had a new baby or even added a pet to the family it may be time to look for more space. Even if space isn’t a factor yet, now that your family is growing aspects of your neighborhood you didn’t consider before may now become more important such as school districts, parks, etc. An A-rated school district is always a plus, even if kids are not a part of the family as it helps when it comes time to sell your home.
Things are going well at work, you have been saving a lot, and have looked at your dream home house features on pinterest more than a few times a week – it may be time to start the search for your dream home!
Seeking a Shorter Commute
Feel like you spend more time in your car than in your home? Tired of the stress of traffic? When your commute is taking away time you could be spending in your home, it may be time to look for something closer to work.
Sometimes you just need a fresh start. Unfortunately you can’t just up and move every time you want a fresh start or a new year begins, but sometimes this is just what the doctor ordered. If you have been putting off moving for awhile because just the thought of it stresses you or you’ve just been waiting for that push – it may be time to go for it.
Moving is a big step and you need to be sure it is the right time for you, but the start of a new year is a great time to reflect on the year before in your home and what you hope to get out of your home in 2016! The GreatFloridaHomes Team is here to help walk you through these big life steps!
