Signs that it’s Time to Move

Have you already started thinking about moving to a new home? Or are there things about where you live now that could be signs that it’s time to move?

Family Situation

If space is getting tight, with kids growing up or your parents moving in, you might already be thinking about storage or moving to a larger home. Conversely, if you have too much empty space after the kids have moved out, this could be a chance to move house to somewhere in an area you’ve always wanted to explore without having your time consumed with the upkeep on a big house. If your relationship changes and you no longer feel so emotionally connected to the place you lived in together, or you want to take things to the next step in a new relationship, perhaps moving home is a good way to forge a new future.

Many of life’s moves are triggered by your family plans, with commitments to parents, children and wider family members meaning that you may need more space or want to move to a property with different features such as a larger garden or one level living. Finding a location nearer to a good school for your kids is another big sign that you’ll need to move home.

Work & Finances

A new job opportunity or a commute you can’t stand any longer could mean relocation is on the cards. Life in the suburbs appeals to many who are looking for a less busy pace, or perhaps you’re looking to get away from bad neighbours or safety and security issues where you’re currently living.

And if your finances get better or you start to feel the pinch paying your current mortgage, rent or bills, then this is another potential sign that you may need to move house.
