Selling Your Atlanta Home? 5 Ways to Know when It's TIme To Sell

Posted by Wendy G Brown on Jan 16, 2016 in Real Estate

Your Atlanta home is your castle while you live there, it is your own little piece of the American dream every time you open the door to walk into it. But lately, your little corner of the world has begun to feel a little cramped. Now you are beginning to find yourself eyeing a few of those new and larger homes. Is it time to pull up stakes and move on from your starter home? Here are five reasons that you should consider.

A Growing Family

If you've added to your family in recent years, you may have more bodies than you do bedrooms. A two-bedroom home may have been a great idea when it was just you and your spouse, but with two or more children, you're starting to have turf wars over the play area.

Overflowing With Stuff

From an overflowing toy chest to closets packed so tightly with shoes and coats you risk an avalanche every time you open the door, your home just doesn't have the space to keep all your things. You may have even had to move some things off-site, spending money to rent storage space to keep that antique dresser your grandmother left you or the set of state spoons you carefully collected during your college years. Before thinking of selling and moving out it might be useful for you to go through what isn’t valuable and donate old clothes that to your local shelters.

No Rest for the Weary

You'd love to spend an afternoon soaking in the tub, but before the warmth of the water can take you away, there's a banging on the door of the only bathroom in the house and a chorus of “hurry up!” invading your quiet time. And the man cave you dreamed of? Those visions of a big screen television were shattered by the realization you needed somewhere for the kids to sleep.  

No Room for Extras

When you first moved in, the two-car garage doubled as your woodworking shop. Now, the equipment has been sent to storage to make room for the family's second car. You'd love to take up a gardening hobby, but your tiny yard barely has room for a grill and a lawn chair. If you’re a sociable person, you have had those times when you wanted to host your friends who were visiting from out of state. Sadly, there is hardly room for their luggage, much less room for them inside of your home.

Changes in Career

You may have opted for a starter home when you first entered the market because you had a smaller income. Now, thanks to changes in careers or a very crucial promotion at work, you can afford a home with greater square footage and room for your growing family that will provide you with the necessary space you need to make many years of happy memories.
