When you first purchase a home, you may think it will be the only home that you will ever live in. However, life changes can happen in an instant. From starting a family to having your elderly parents move in, the house may start to feel overcrowded, too small, or just not right for you. There are several signs to look for that could be clear indicators that you’ve outgrown your home and may want to renovate, remodel, or move entirely to suit your present and future needs.
Changes to Family Size
Major life changes are always clear indicators that the house isn’t living up to your expectations. The house may feel overcrowded with kids, relatives, and even pets. If you run out of spare space to hold all your possessions, or your family has to share bedrooms, the house may feel too small. The opposite also holds true. A house may feel too large for your present needs. If family moves out or your kids go to college, the home can be too large to maintain or you may not know what to do with the spare bedrooms.
