Moving on: 3 Sure Signs It's Time to Find a New Home

Sooner or later, you might feel like it’s time for a new home. Although moving is stressful and saying goodbye to your old home is sad, settling into a new place is an exciting new period of your life. When a significant change is due, it can be difficult to acknowledge the signs - and we hang on to what we have instead to avoid the emotional turbulence.

Keep this checklist in mind and get going when it’s time for a change - it’s not that scary, after all.

You’ve outgrown it

Just like it is with running a business, you need to be able to tell when you’ve outgrown your current situation, regardless of whether you rent or own your home. Family’s expand, stuff tends to hoard up, or you might have managed to outgrow it all on your own. If you constantly try to keep it tidy but never feel quite satisfied, or if you’re living on top of your family members and are starting to feel slightly tired of them, it could be the right time for a move.

Remember that it’s possible to move to a larger apartment in the same building. It will save you both time and effort, and you don’t have to go far unless you’ve got a solid reason behind it. Moving to a new city or to the other side of the one you’re living in means more preparation than simply moving next door, so keep a good moving company handy. Shiply can cure many of your headaches as you get to compare quotes and find a good price - or you can have a look at this DIY moving article.

Staying put in the same street or building is a good alternative if you have children, live close to your job, or any other reason you have to continue residing in the same neighborhood.

It’s not convenient anymore

Maybe a change of workplace makes your current abode inconvenient, or something else has changed in your life. It could even be that you forgot to take certain aspects of the place you’re living in into account when you first viewed it; no grocery shops nearby, a lack of parking spots or even noisy neighbors is often enough to make most people think about moving on to a new place.

Remember to think about all of this when you’re looking for your new place, and make sure it is suitable for both your current needs as well the ones you might have in a few years.

You want a new neighborhood

Let’s face it; times are changing, and your old neighborhood may not be the same as it used to be. It could be smart to consider a move when the nightlife starts to take over in your streets, trendy spots are robbing your old streets of its shabby charm, or it’s experiencing a rise in criminal activities and general nuisance.

It requires a bit more research as you don’t want to end up in the same type of community, though, so remember to ask around and hear people’s opinions. This article has a lot of good ideas on questions you can ask about your potential new neighborhood.

Realizing that it’s time for a new place is not always easy. Although you’re going through a stressful situation and would like to settle into a more suitable home as soon as possible, don’t rush it; find the one that’s perfect for you and stay in love with it for years to come.

She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!
