It’s that time of the year, isn’t it? The time of the year where we reflect on what has been and start devoting some attention towards what’s coming – and how we mean to get the very best out of all that fabulous new year energy!
For many of us, that’s going to mean moving home and even though this is not a decision to take lightly, we say that change is as good as a holiday and so we’re going to look at a few reasons why you might be thinking about relocating and why moving home may just be the change you’ve been needing, and didn’t know you did.
So, first up, moving home is never an easy decision to make (even when it is). Our homes are far more than just brick and mortar buildings. They house not just humans, but also events, memories hope, and dreams, and the emotional attachment that we designate to our homes is rarely matched in other areas of our lives or with other types of material possessions.
That means that making this decision needs to be thoughtfully and carefully managed because along with ensuring the emotional well-being of our family, we also want to ensure the financial well-being of families too, right?
But if you’ve been feeling like your space doesn’t quite cut it anymore, there may be a few tell-tale signs that a move is on the cards.
MONEY, MONEY, MONEY
No one wants to move house because we can no longer afford to live in the house we’re in, and this is a reality that many of us are having to contemplate after the past couple of years. The important thing to remember though is that after all is said and done (and on the contrary to what we said before), a house is also just a thing and if you have money stored up in your home, that cash may well be the lifeline that your family needs to start over and start strong.
YOU’RE EXPECTING MORE TINY HUMANS IN YOUR LIFE
A growing family means a growing space, so if it’s time to start planning for the pitter-patter of tiny feet, it’s probably also time to start thinking about a bigger space. The thing about houses though, is that they’re great ways to create and preserve wealth so selling your home might not be necessary. If you have a good relationship with your banker and your credit looks good, you might qualify for a second mortgage on your new home while renting out your current home. Can you dig this?
YOUR FAMILY NEEDS TO HIT THE RESET BUTTON
If you’ve been through a tough time, a time that could have been brought on by myriad reasons like divorce, grief, trauma, getting over infidelity or you just need to change the scenery, then moving house could be the solution you didn’t know you needed. All of that new energy that comes with a new and exciting space can be harnessed to turn your life around and move it in an entirely new direction.
