If you’ve been considering moving but aren’t sure whether now’s the right time, there are a few key indicators you should look out for. Today, we’ll share 16 such signs:

1. Your financial situation has changed. Whether your current home has become too expensive or you’ve earned enough to make an upgrade, a change in budget can be a strong sign it’s time to move.

2. You’ve outgrown your storage space. Sometimes, no matter how tightly we pack our shelves and closets, there just isn’t enough room for everything we own. If this has happened to you, purging some unneeded belongings and moving to a smaller home or hauling your things to a new, larger space may be the next best step.

3. Your family is expanding. Sometimes, a large number of belongings isn’t the culprit behind space issues. The birth of a new child can also be a good reason to find a new, larger home.

4. Fewer people now live in your home. Whether your kids have flown the nest or you previously shared your home with roommates who have decided to move on, a decrease in the number of people living in the home can prompt those who still live there to downsize.

5. Your neighborhood is on the decline. Neighborhoods go downhill for a number of reasons, and any of them can serve as a good reason to move.

6. You have a dream your current home can’t support. Your home should match your lifestyle and the budget that comes along with it.

7. Your city doesn’t appeal to buyers. When there’s nothing in your area drawing new people in, values are sure to shrink. And when this happens, it’s sometimes best to get out while you can.

8. It costs you less to move. If your current property is so expensive that moving would be less so, it may be time to move. 
The people, amenities, and area surrounding your home should be a good fit for you.
9. You’ve started cooking more (or less). If you’ve recently picked up an interest in the culinary arts, moving to a home with a larger kitchen might be best. Conversely, those who prefer not to cook and would rather live near restaurants may also find a move to be beneficial.

10. Your kids have stopped having friends over. The fewer guests you have, the less space you need.

11. You’re intimidated by the thought of rising interest rates. If you aren’t in your “forever home” and are worried how rising rates might impact your eventual move, taking the plunge sooner may be in your best interest.

12. You’ve been putting off moving for a while. There’s no time like the present.

13. The neighborhood no longer fits your wants and needs. The people, amenities, and area surrounding your home should be a good fit for you.

14. Your commute is too long. Moving might sound like a hassle, but driving an hour to and from work each day can be quite stressful, as well.

15. Things are getting serious with that special someone. Whether you’re looking to move closer to a long distance S.O. or you and your partner have decided to move in together, these can both be good reasons to find a new home.

16. You want a fresh start. 

There are many more signs that it’s time to move on, but these are just a few of the most common examples.
