Is it time to move home? Here’s the signs to watch out for…
Any parent returning home after an addition to the family will notice the sudden and unnerving shrinking of their living accommodation. Previously spacious rooms will be filled to bursting with strangely named “travel systems”, “changing stations” and other baby accouterments. Get planning now for that forthcoming move – you will need more space.
An increasing affinity towards all things gardening (often manifested as a collection of garden gnomes) is a sure sign that you are hankering for more than that postage stamp of a garden you have now.Time to move on. Alternatively, as part of your retirement plans, you may wish to spend less time taking care of an over-sized house and more time taking care of your roses. Either way start thinking about that house move, or should we say, garden move.
The Silent Scream
Roads congested? Buses overflowing?
When the daily grind of getting around becomes too much then the silent scream is released. If fellow commuters are looking at you strangely, you know it’s a sure sign that you’ll be moving on to a place with clear, uncongested roads soon enough.
Pulling out and dusting off the family photo albums, or in this day and age, scrolling through electronic family photographs is often a symptom of wanting to see more of that family. Moving home to be closer to your loved ones is an evident next step. Wonder what they think …?
Ever feel you’re living on the edge? A glaringly sure sign of an impending move is the proximity to a disintegrating cliff face.
On a smaller scale if cracks are appearing in your property, or repair and upkeep costs are soaring then a move to a more maintenance-free property is in the cards.
One person’s wall scribble is another person’s urban art form. If you are more a follower of Botticelli than Banksy now might be the time to consider a move to different surroundings.
If you find that those glossy, lifestyle magazines are appearing more often in your life it’s often a sign of an impending move (whether you yet know it or not). You find yourself flicking through pictures of those beautiful kitchens and bathrooms dreaming of the house you really want, you look up …. and stare at reality. Definitely time to move.
Wistfully gazing out of your lounge window for long periods of time is a sure sign of an imminent move. What do you see? The neighbour’s giant, glaring television screen (the rest of the furniture now looks the size of a doll’s house) or tall trees, green fields and blue sky. When the longing for a view becomes unbearable – it’s time to move on.
