Buying a house is an incredibly exciting achievement and after browsing the property market to find your dream home, moving day can’t come soon enough. However, once you’ve lived in your house for a few years, you may find yourself falling out of love with it and starting to browse property websites for somewhere new to live. 

A house is a huge investment, so understandably you want to ensure that you’re moving at the best time and you’re not making any impulsive decisions. To help you determine whether now is the right time for you to move house, below we have listed some common signs that your home is no longer the best fit for you and your family. 

Your house isn’t the right size for you anymore 

Over time, your needs will change and your home may become too small or too big. If your family is expanding or your children have flown the nest, it may be time to start looking for a new house that is a more suitable size. It’s not just the number of bedrooms that can make a house the wrong size, you may find the living space is too small or you’ve run out of storage space, for example. Not to mention, if you only have one bathroom, this can become very inconvenient when you have children and several people need to use this room at once. 

You spend a lot of time in your car

Whether you have a long commute to work, your family and friends live quite far away or you frequently visit amenities in the next town, moving house could make your day-to-day life much easier. Spending a lot of time travelling is a sign that your home might not be in the best location and you could be better off relocating. It’s beneficial to speak to an estate agent if this is the case, they can help you to find houses for sale in a new area that’s more convenient and meets all of your needs, whatever they may be. 

You’re considering an expensive extension

It isn’t uncommon for homeowners to build an extension or convert their loft space, but this type of renovation can be very expensive and very stressful. Before you invest a lot of money into an extension, it’s worthwhile browsing the property market to see if there is another house that meets your needs. There are pros and cons to both renovating your home and moving house, however, if there is a property on the market that is suitable for your family and your lifestyle, you won’t have to live in a building site to get the home of your dreams. 

You spend a lot of time and money decorating 

If you’re constantly trying to make your house perfect and you spend a lot of time redecorating the rooms, this could be a sign that it’s time to move home. When you’ve repainted your walls, installed new flooring and updated your accessories but you’re still not happy with the way your house looks and feels, you might simply be unhappy with your home. Often, this is the case when people have lived in the same house for decades and they need a fresh start in a new property that they can make their own. 

You’ve always dreamed of living somewhere new

When you still live in the same area you grew up in and you’ve been thinking a lot about moving to a new town or village, it might be time for a change. You shouldn’t constantly be thinking about living somewhere else and how much better your life could be, so you should bite the bullet and look at properties somewhere new. You may find that moving house and starting a new chapter in a different area is the best thing you ever do.
