Have you ever thought about moving to a new home to accommodate your lifestyle, health, or your personal goals? Many people move, not because they have to but because they want to. They find that their current surroundings don’t meet their personal or even their professional goals and decide to relocate to a new home. Have you thought about how your current home will adapt to your personal lifestyle and family needs?
Here are a few reasons why some families move to support their personal and family goals.
There’s just not enough room in your current home
We get it, you do what you need to do in your current home to save money and build your career. And then you have children and pets and all of a sudden your home becomes too small to accommodate everyone’s needs. This is especially true when the kids become teenagers and they might need their own space. Finding a larger home can obviously accommodate everyone’s needs including the trend of family members working from home.
Your working conditions may have changed
Since COVID-19 came into our lives, working has changed for the future. For many industries, working from home has become the standard. Some people are fully remote and others go into the office one or two days a week. Some people can work from anywhere now and they have decided to move to a new home. But for those who still need to go into the office, maybe you’ve decided that you do not like your long commute anymore. If you’re tired of sitting in traffic and can make the move, it’s probably a smart decision. The money you save on gas alone could make a difference.
Many families want a new project
We have moved a number of families over the years that have decided they want a new project by purchasing a fixer-upper. You could still get a good deal on a home if it needs work and you can make that home your own. You might even be able to get a home in an expensive neighborhood for a great deal if you go this way. If you have the energy and the resources to fix up a home, this could be a great way to build equity as well.
Moving closer to family
You may have decided you want to move closer to family members and that can mean a number of things. If you’re in your retirement years you may want to move closer to your adult children so you can see your grandkids more often. Or you may be that adult child and you have decided you need to move closer to home to take care of aging parents. During the past two years, we’ve seen many more individuals move closer to family.
