How do you know if it’s time to move to a different home? These are the seven signs that it might be time to make that change.
There are seven signs that signal that it is time for you to move:
The average homeowner moves every seven years. If you’re getting close to the time frame, you might be feeling that seven-year itch and are looking for something else.
Are you expecting children? The home that you’re in currently may be bulging at the seams, so you might need to upsize to a larger home. It could also be that you’re looking to move to a different area of town as the kids grow older.
You need to live within your means. Sometimes, when people get promotions at their job, people want to elevate their lifestyle, which can mean changing where they live. When remodeling just won’t give them the bang for their buck, moving into a next-level dream home is the way to go.
Your children have moved out. A lot of empty-nesters eventually realize that they have too much space and would prefer a lock-and-leave home so they can travel and fulfill their bucket list. If you find that you need to downsize it may be time for you to move.
A LOT OF EMPTY-NESTERS EVENTUALLY REALIZE THAT THEY HAVE TOO MUCH SPACE AND WOULD PREFER A LOCK-AND-LEAVE HOME.
You’re getting married. When people get married, they often want to have a new space of their own to get a fresh start.
On the other hand, perhaps you’re going through a divorce. This is another reason to get a fresh start in a new home.
You need a better commute time. Especially in the Denver area, with all the people moving to the city, the time it takes to get to work is very important to consider. If you take an hour and a half per day to get to work 50 weeks of the year, that’s 375 hours that you’re on the road. You may need to move somewhere closer to your work to reduce that figure.
If any of these signs ring a bell with you or someone you know, we’d love to talk to you. Feel free to reach out to me by phone, text, or email.
