A lot has changed since the beginning of the year. Big events went virtual, social interactions have been limited and many of us have spent much more time in the house than we ever could have imagined.

These changes might even have you eyeing a new home purchase — either for financial reasons or to better suit the new normal.

Are you questioning whether your current home still meets your needs? Here are just a few reasons you might consider a new place:

  • You need more (or less) space. If you have college-age kids or elderly parents staying with you, you may have felt cramped at home in recent weeks. Or have you noticed that entire rooms go unused for months? It may be time to upgrade or downsize if your needs have changed.

  • Your work-from-home arrangement will continue. Are you going to work remotely for the foreseeable future? The kitchen table may cut it for now, but eventually, you’ll probably need a dedicated home office — something to consider if you’re house hunting.

  • You’re spending more time outdoors. Maybe you find yourself craving the sunshine a little more than usual lately. If so, you might want to look at properties with a bigger yard, a patio, a pool, or other outdoor amenities.

  • You want more convenience. Want to minimize the effort of running your household? Investing in a smart home might be a wise move. Hands-free faucets, smart thermostats, and locks controlled with an app are just a few of the conveniences you might find.

If any of these apply to you, get in touch so we can start your next home search :)
