You know it’s time to transition out of your starter home when the closets suddenly feel too full, yet not big enough to store the essentials. When the junk drawers start to pile up with miscellaneous household items (golf tees, drill bits and Chapstick for us), or when hobbies, school or friends are drawing you to the other side of town, and you are frequently the one commuting.
As our lives change, our homes often change with us for an extended period of time- homes are remodeled, added on, and the interiors are rearranged frequently based on ever-changing needs. However, sometimes is it more space that is truly needed, or a different type of space based on your lifestyle.
Transitioning from house A to house B is a lot of work, and it can happen over a long period of time or very quickly. We have worked with many clients who had been slowly cleaning out their homes over several months to prepare for an imminent move and to be prepared with a plan well in advance, while others find that PERFECT property very suddenly, and then all the timelines are very quick. We love to help with both scenarios, because whether it is relocating out of town or just getting into something new (to you!) nearby, there are a lot of moving parts on top of your already busy life.
With interest rates remaining low, the new conventional loan limit increasing (ask me more!) and starter home demand remaining at all time highs, it has never been a better time to transition out of your starter home and size up, pursue your dream home, or just find something that fits your lifestyle better – to make everything a little easier.
