years ago no longer suits their needs. From an expanding family to the empty nest, it’s
common for a home to no longer be the right fit. If you’re unsure if you’ve reached the point
where a move is warranted, here are a few signs you’ve outgrown your home.

• More Kids than Rooms or More Rooms than Kids – Life changes and our homes must
change also.
• Clutter or Lack of Storage – Do you need more closet or storage space? A home with
more space could be the answer.
• Home Office – More and more companies are opting for telecommuting or home office
workers, if your kitchen is your office, it might be time to look for a new home with
extra room for a home office.
• Outdoor Entertaining – Home design trends over the last couple decades has seen a rise
in outdoor living and entertaining areas. You might have simply outgrown your yard if
you crave space for an outdoor living or dining area.
• Lifestyle – The square footage might be fine, but you would prefer a different floor plan;
more open, single story, more windows, etc.

Your reasons for moving will be as unique as you are, but these are just a few considerations
which indicate you might have outgrown your current home. Make sure your home still meets
your needs and wants, then you’ll be able to decide if it’s time to move.
