5 Signs You’ve Outgrown Your Home

We know–you love your home. It’s the first home you purchased on your own, or with a partner. It holds a special place in your heart. But how do you know when it’s time to move on?

Here are 5 sure signs that you’ve outgrown your home.

1. Too Much or Too Little Space

The issue of space goes both ways. Are you expecting an addition to the family, but have no room for a nursery? Do you avoid opening your hall closet at all costs?

Or has your nest recently emptied? Are you finding yourself turning spare bedrooms into knitting rooms? Have you recently begun collecting grandfather clocks?

Space is likely the first problem you’ll experience when it’s time to move on to a new home!

2. Lifestyle Changes

Maybe you’ve just landed a new job. Maybe you’re sick of the long commute. Whether you’re looking to be closer to the city or farther away, more area for outdoor entertainment or no yard to maintain, major lifestyle changes usually require a home change, too.

This is another sign you’ll receive pretty quickly if you’ve outgrown your home. Lifestyle changes can encompass anything from wanting a better school district, a gym close by, or even a different neighborhood culture. Whatever you’re dreaming of, there’s the perfect home for you waiting somewhere.

3. You’re on Pinterest Like...All The Time

Guilty! Not much explanation needed here. If your Pinterest Home Dream Board looks nothing like your home, it’s time to consider making your day dream a reality.

4. You're Ready For a Change of Scenery

You dreamed of living in the country but find yourself missing the city. You’ve always loved the hustle and bustle of city life, but now the Hill Country is calling to you. Or maybe you’re looking for a home right in between! The average person moves over 11 times in their life! It’s safe to say that you’re not alone in wanting a change of scenery.

5. Homes in Your Area are Selling for $$$

If the homes in your area are selling for top dollar, you might want to consider taking advantage of the current state of the market!
