4 Signs You Need a Bigger House

If you're starting to feel like your home is too small, you're not alone. According to a recent study, the average American home has gotten smaller over the last decade. But just because homes are getting smaller doesn't mean that your family has to suffer.

Here are four signs that it might be time for you to upgrade to a bigger house:

1. You're Constantly Tripping Over Stuff

If your home is so cluttered that you're constantly tripping over things, it's probably time for an upgrade. A bigger house will give you more storage space so you can keep your belongings organized and out of the way. Small homes can often feel cramped and cluttered which can make it difficult to relax or even get a good night's sleep. Additionally, small homes can be more challenging to keep clean and organized. This can add to the feeling of being stressed and overwhelmed.

This is especially true if you've already gone through clothes, toys, and unused items, and are still finding it hard to navigate your home without an issue. Sometimes there is only so much you can downsize or get rid of. If you have a growing family with growing needs, you'll be amazed at the stress you'll feel when your family is cramped into a small space. See if you qualify for a conforming loan and price check houses in your local area. Remember, when you move out toward the country, you may get a better deal on a larger house.

2. Your Kids are Fighting all the Time

If your kids are constantly fighting with each other, it might be due to a lack of space. Kids need their own personal space in order to feel comfortable and happy. If they're constantly bumping into each other or arguing over who gets the bigger bedroom, it's probably time to start looking for a new home.

When kids fight, they're usually fighting for two things: attention and space. They want to feel like they're being seen and heard, and they want to have some control over their own lives. In other words, they're just like adults. The difference is, of course, that kids don't have the same skills or maturity to deal with conflict in a constructive way. So instead, they lash out.

Sometimes a little breathing room can do the whole family some good. Take time and assess what the fighting is really about. Ask yourself if your kids have a space where they can go to unwind and destress? If the answer is no, you may be experiencing fighting due to a lack of space.

3. You Can't Have Guests Over

If you're embarrassed to have guests over because your home is too small or cluttered, it's definitely time for an upgrade. A bigger house will give you the extra space you need to entertain guests comfortably.

Sometimes a little extra storage and room to grow are all you need to feel like you can breathe. There's something to be said for having enough space to put things out of sight and room for guests to feel welcome.

4. You're Dreaming of More Space

If you find yourself constantly dreaming of more space, it's probably because you need it. If you can't seem to shake the feeling that your home is too small, it's time to start looking for a bigger one. Your whole family can get excited over the prospect of a new home. Think about all the areas in your current house that may need work and take note of what you want in the new one.

It's important to listen to your gut when it comes to your living situation. After all, a home is where you and your family spend a majority of your time, you want it to fit all of your needs. If you're constantly dreaming of more space, it's probably because you need it. Trust your instincts and start looking for a new home that will better suit your needs.
