When do you know it’s time to upsize your home?

There could be so many clues.

You could simply be noticing that you have no where to put your pots and pans.

Or maybe your baby crawled into the dog food dish again?

Or perhaps the closest playground is the night club down the street called “playground”.

Whatever the reasons, there are tell tale signs that will help clear the path to a new home for you and your loved ones!

Top 5 reasons to upsize your home:

1. A new chapter in life!

Upgrading to a larger home can be a great way to celebrate a major milestone or transition in life, such as getting married, having a baby, starting a new job or growing as a family.  More people in the house and/or different lifestyle needs call for different digs.

2. More room for entertaining.

If you love hosting dinner parties, game nights, or other gatherings, a larger home can provide more space for entertaining and making memories with friends and family.  There will be plenty of space for all of your professional cookware, a bigger prep area for your foodie self AND your guests!

3. A chance to upgrade your home’s features.

Maybe you’ve always dreamed of having a home with a fireplace, a gourmet kitchen, or a home theatre. Upsizing can give you the opportunity to upgrade to a home with the features you’ve always wanted and longed for.

4. Extra space for hobbies and projects.

A larger home can give you more room to pursue your passions and hobbies, whether it’s setting up a home workshop, building a home gym, or creating a home office.  Work from home never looked so good than when it’s in a flashy new space.

5. A change of scenery.

Moving to a larger home in a new neighbourhood or city can be a great way to shake things up and experience new things.  Is your current home in a noisy neighbourhood?  Looking for more parks and green space? If you don’t like your neighbourhood, it’s ok to get up and move – you’re not a tree 🙂

Hopefully you now have an answer to when do you know it’s time to upsize your home?

Overall, upsizing can be an exciting and positive experience, as it allows you to create a home that better meets your needs and supports the lifestyle you want to live.  Be sure to check in with your mortgage and real estate professionals to get a lay of your financial land before you do so.
