If we’re fortunate enough to have a house for us and our families to live, then there will doubtless have been many memories made in the family home that will be treasured for the longest time. Kids’ birthday parties, all of your baby’s firsts, family gatherings, or normal lazy Saturday mornings can all hold their place in the heart of your home.
However, there may come a time that you will want to put your house up for sale and start new memories elsewhere. You find yourself looking in real estate windows as you walk past, or spending hours browsing Cami Jones & Company listings and dreaming of a place to call home for you and your family.
You love your home, but when it is no longer fit for purpose, it’s time to move on.
If you are still on the fence about whether it’s time to pack up your home and move, read these 3 signs that it’s time for you to sell your home.
Not Enough Bedrooms
You may have bought your house with one or two spared bedrooms before you became a parent and now find yourself with kids sharing rooms. Shared rooms don’t tend to be a problem when the kids are little, but as they get older, they’re going to want and need their own space and privacy. If you have toddlers and teens sharing rooms then it’s time to move into a bigger home so that your teen has privacy and your toddler has room to play.
All the kids piling up in your bed? Another sign it’s time to move on and give them (and you!) more space.
You Started a Work From Home Business
More and more people have been starting their own businesses or working from home, and sometimes the dining room table just won’t cut it. You need the space to be able to focus on your work without being distracted by chores, or with kids pulling at your clothes.
If there’s no scope for a home office in your current house, then it may be worth looking into finding a place that will allow for that. After all- you want your business to be a success!
You Don’t Love the Neighborhood
Real Estate agents always say that it’s better to be the worst house on the best street than to be the best house on the worst street. Plus, over time, neighborhoods change. People can move on, businesses close, or the reputation changes. You want to be happy and feel safe- and that’s just not possible in a neighborhood that you don’t love.
The only issue you may face is that if your street has a bad reputation then the house may not sell for what you want it to.
Moving house is not a decision that should be taken lightly, but when it’s time to go, then you have to go in order to move on in yours and your families lives together.
