Your home is your castle, your own piece of the American dream. But lately your little corner of the world has been feeling cramped and you find yourself eyeing a larger home. Is it time to pull up the stakes and move on from your starter home?
If you have added to your family in recent years, you may have more people 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 are out of space.
Overflowing With Stuff
When every closet is packed so tightly with shoes and coats you risk an avalanche every time you open the door, your home just does not 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 hold onto keepsakes.
No Rest For The Weary
You would love to spend an afternoon soaking in the tub but before the warmth of the water can take you away, there is a banging on the door of the only bathroom in the house and a chorus of “hurry up!” Or the rec room you dreamed of is only a dream. Those visions of a big screen television were shattered by the realization you needed somewhere for the kids to play.
No Room For Extras
When you first moved in, the two-car garage doubled as a work shop. Now, the equipment has been sent to storage to make room for the bigger vehicle and the kid’s toys. Or you would love to host your friends visiting 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 greater square footage and room for your growing family that will provide the space you need for many years to come.
