Five Easy Ways to Tell if It's Time to Upgrade
Is your little corner of the world has been feeling cramped and you find yourself eyeing those larger homes?
Is it time to pull up stakes and move on from your starter home?
If you've added to your family in recent years, you may have more bodies than bedrooms. A two-bedroom home may have been a great idea when it was just you and your spouse, but with two kids, you have given up your office and work out room for a playroom.
Overflowing With Stuff
From an overflowing toy chest to closets packed so tightly with shoes and coats you risk an avalanche every time you open the door, your home just doesn't have the space to keep all your things. You may have even had to move some things off-site, spending money to rent storage space to keep that antique dresser your grandmother left you or the set of state spoons you carefully collected during your college years.
No Rest For The Weary
You'd love to spend an afternoon soaking in the tub, but before the warmth of the water can take you away, there's a banging on the door of the only bathroom in the house and a chorus of “hurry up!” invading your quiet time. And the man cave you dreamed of? Those visions of a big screen television were shattered by the realization you needed somewhere for the kids to sleep.
No Room For Extras
Maybe you purchased this house before you were married, the two-car garage doubled as your woodworking shop. Now, the equipment has been sent to storage to make room for the family's second car. You'd love to take up gardening, but your tiny yard barely has room for a grill and a lawn chair. You'd love to host your family from out of state, but there is hardly room for their luggage, much less them.
Changes In Career
You may have opted for a starter home when you first entered the market because you had a smaller income. Now, thanks to changes in careers or promotions at work, you can afford a home with more square footage and room for your growing family that will provide the space you need for many years of happy memories.
