Is It Time to Move? 6 Telltale Signs you need a change 

Most people dread even just the thought of moving. However, those same people feel over the moon once they’ve completed their move. From packing every little thing to transporting precious furniture safely, the logistics of moving seem scary. An even bigger fear is the fear of change. Your home is, well, your home! You have a deep emotional attachment to it and nostalgic for the time you’ve spent in it. The way you feel is completely understandable, but a home that no longer fits your needs can make even the most beloved home feel uncomfortable. Yet, there’s a nagging voice in the back of your head saying is this right for me and my family?

Here are 6 telltale signs that you should consider putting a “For Sale” sign out front.

  1. Your Home is Too Small - Have you found yourself waiting in a bathroom line that reminds you of your school days? Or constantly stepping on toys or toes just to get around the house? You’ve probably outgrown your home. Sometimes you don’t even realize the kind of space you need to live comfortably until your home gets uncomfortable. Moving to a new home means you can ensure you have the right number of bathrooms and a bonus room with ample toy storage.
  2. Your Home is Too Big - Life changes! Suddenly that extra bedroom looks less like a guest bedroom and more like another room to clean. Empty Nesters often find there is too much to maintain in a large home. You finally have the time to travel and relax, why spend it keeping up a house that no longer fits your needs?
  3. Your Home is Too Expensive - Are you spending all your extra cash on making repairs? Does it feel like every time you turn around you have to fix something else? Your house might have become a money pit without you even noticing it. Don’t stick around in a home that’s eating up your savings and annual bonuses just to keep the space livable. Moving means the chance to find a home with exactly what you want without all the surprise repair costs.
  4. The Neighborhood isn’t what it used to be - Neighborhoods change over time for many reasons. If you feel like the days of knowing your neighbors’ names are long gone, community rules are too lax or too stringent, or its simply not evolved as you had hoped, then it’s time to move on. If you’ve noticed a decline in your neighborhood, the value of your home might be declining as well. We’d recommend moving on to greener pastures.
  5. You’re sick of the weather - Have you ever looked out of the kitchen window to snow flurries and thought “not again” or feel like you could go the rest of your life without shoveling another sidewalk? You’re not alone. According to the Census Bureau, more people are moving south than any other region. Moving to warmer weather – and, in our case, the Tampa Bay area can solve any and all freezing cold problems.
  6. Change is good! - At the end of the day, it’s good to make a change. Change promotes growth in both your personal and professional lives. Moving means you get to try a different style of home or a more fitting and enriching location. If your home isn’t making you happy any longer, it’s time to make a change and move.
