Signs You Need a Bigger Home 

For most people, no matter how perfect a home is at the time they purchase it, the day comes when the home no longer meets their every need. For many families, the issue becomes that the current home is just too small. If you’re feeling like things might be a little tight, here are five signs that you need a bigger home. To learn more about buying a home in NWI, call The Jana Caudill Team today.

  • Your Family Has Grown or Is Growing

Are you expecting a little one in the near future? Or do you already have one, or two, or three kids running around? If you’ve added to the family or are getting ready to add to the family, it may be time for a bigger home. Keep in mind that finding a new home is often easier before the baby arrives.

  • You’re Out of Storage Space

Are you finding it harder and harder to find storage spots for your gear? If you’re getting more stuff and don’t have a place to put it, you may be stressed about the clutter. While decluttering can get you somewhere, if you’ve already gotten rid of the old to make room for the new and still don’t have enough storage, it may be time to upgrade.

  • You’re Having to Move Stuff to Get to Stuff

Speaking of storage space, have you started piling stuff in the garage and closets to the point that in order to be able to access something—like the paddleboards for your upcoming weekend at the lake—you first have to move a lot of other stuff? This can be frustrating, time-consuming, and disrupt your sense of order.

  • You Feel Cramped

The easiest way to know that you’ve outgrown your current home and are ready to upgrade to a new spot is simply feeling cramped. If things feel tight and cluttered, you may benefit by being in a bigger, more organized space. Keep in mind that your physical surroundings and things like clutter take a toll on your mental wellbeing. 

  • You’re Working from Home

If you’re working from home, you may be dreaming of a larger space. This is especially true if you don’t have a private office or workspace, or if both you and your partner are working from home. Wouldn’t your own office be nice?
