5 Signs It’s Time To Move House16th August 2018
It’s easy to feel content and comfortable in your own home, but sometimes making the leap of finding a new place can be the catalyst for a happier life. This article will be presenting five different situations where relocating to a new property will be beneficial for you, your life and your wellbeing.
It may not seem a huge amount each day, but a sizeable commute time can add up considerably. Reducing a sixty minute commute down to just fifteen minutes saves an hour and a half each day. That’s seven and a half hours in a working week. That’s a staggering 390 hours – or a little over 16 full days – saved in a year just by shortening your commute.
If you’re spending a lengthy amount of time travelling to work each day, moving house to a more accessible location will make a significant difference to your work/life balance. The extra time saved can be spent with family, friends or enjoying hobbies, rather than being stuck in traffic or crammed on transport. Though moving house can seem an arduous task, the amount of extra free time gained as a result of reducing your commute easily exceeds the amount of time spent relocating. Time is precious; moving home can help you make the most of it.
Have you started to feel a little less safe in your own home? Perhaps some turbulent neighbours have recently moved nearby and now you find yourself walking at a slightly brisker pace at night.
Living in a rough area can be increasingly damaging to your mental health. Your home should be the place you feel most relaxed, and aren’t constantly stressed out by potential threats. Additionally, It’s vitally important you reduce the risk of any criminal events affecting your family or possessions. Moving home to a better suited area for you and your family can reduce stress and give everyone some peace of mind.
Struggling with childcare
Everyone wants to be a good parent, and moving away from a rough area to have your child grow up in a safer environment is supremely important. However, childcare can be difficult, and moving house can be a way to help support you, as well as your child. Moving your home closer to friends or family can help relieve some of the difficulties of parenthood. Not only will it enable you to receive extra help in taking care of your child, but will also provide you with a healthier social life.
Kids moved out
On the other end of the spectrum, if you’re long into parenthood and have seen your children fly the nest, this may also be an ideal time to consider relocating. Choosing to downsize can save you plenty of money when you no longer need such a spacious home. This extra portion of money can greatly improve your wellbeing by prompting a new hobby or simply providing financial stability.
Increased house equity
House prices are continually rising, and if you’ve owned your home for a considerable period of time it’s highly likely your home’s equity has improved. We believe this would be a great opportunity to increase your wellbeing by selling your home and purchasing a newer, nicer home for either the same or less money. Moving up the property ladder allows you to enjoy a better property, and you can start developing equity on your new home to improve your living situation once again in the future.
