Have You Outgrown Your Current Home? Here Are 5 Ways to Tell if you need a bigger house in Tooele UT
You’ve heard the old saying “your home is your castle”, your own little piece of the American dream? But lately, that little corner has been feeling cramped and you find yourself eyeing those larger homes and wondering, with those tiny interest rates, and no assurance that they will remain low, maybe NOW IS THE TIME.
Is it time to pull up stakes and move on from your starter home?
Family Getting Bigger
If you’ve added to your family in recent years, you may have more bodies than bedrooms. A two-bedroom home may have been a great idea when it was just you and your spouse, but with two kids, you’re starting to have turf wars over the play area.
If more than one of your family members is or is soon to be a teenage girl then one bathroom is not going to cut it. (more about that below.)
What about needing to care for aging or unsettled family members? That can often be more than a temporary need. Melding 2 households into one small home is more than a challenge.
From an overflowing pantry, to closets packed so tightly with shoes and coats you risk an avalanche every time you open the door, your home just doesn’t have the space to keep all your things. You may have even started spending money to rent storage space to keep the R.V.s or the heirlooms your grandparents left you or even seasonal gardening equipment that need to get in out of the weather.
Forget About Serenity
You’d love to spend an afternoon soaking in the tub, but before the water gets cold, lines are forming outside the door. Outside the only bathroom in the house comes a chorus of “hurry up” And the man cave you dreamed of? Those visions of a recliner, bar and big screen television were shattered by the realization you needed somewhere for the kids to sleep.
When A Garage is Not a Garage
When you first moved in, the two-car garage doubled as your woodworking shop. Now, the equipment has been sent to storage to make room for the family’s second car. You’d love to take up organic gardening, but your tiny yard barely has room for a grill and a lawn chair. You’d love to host your friends visiting from out of state, but there is hardly room for their luggage, much less them.
Changing Jobs Got a Promotion
You may have been a first time buyer and bought a starter home when you first came to Tooele. Probably because you had a smaller income. Now, thanks to changes in careers or promotions at work, you can afford a bigger home, a house with greater square footage and room for your growing family. This could be the time to buy a house that will provide the space you need for many years of happy memories.
