Buying a Home

4 Signs You’re Ready for Your Next Home

On the fence about buying a new home this year? Following are four signs you’re ready to make a move—and soon!

  1. Your home requires major renovations. Current living space simply not working for you? A brand-new home may be a better option than costly, time-consuming renovations. Plus, do you really want to live amidst the dust and disrepair?
  2. Your household is changing. A new baby, an older child leaving the nest, an aging parent suddenly requiring round-the-clock care… So many factors can alter your household dynamic, and when they do, a move to a new home may be in order.
  3. Your new dog needs new digs. If your family has recently grown by four paws—or you’re planning to add a furry friend to the mix—you may require additional square footage and/or a big(ger) backyard. Both of these can be achieved by buying a new home.
  4. Your finances are in order. If you have little debt, good credit (i.e., a score of 660+), steady employment and a decent down payment (learn ways to build a “nest egg”), you may be ready to leave your landlord behind or buy a bigger, more luxurious home.
