How to Know When It's Time to Move

If you’re on the fence of whether to move or not, it’s crucial that the entire family sits down and makes a list of pros and cons. But sometimes, even that’s not enough, and you can be left wondering whether or not it’s the right time to get the moving boxes ready. These are some reasons to keep in mind as you prepare to make this life-changing decision.

In need of a better school district

If you have kids still in school, it may be worthwhile to consider moving to a better school district, if moving is in the cards anyway. Moving to a better district also puts the home at a higher market value, more so than most other factors. With a younger family especially, this could be a key factor when deciding where to move to.

The commute is shorter

The average commute time in America is 26 minutes, according to the US Census Bureau. And while this is the average, it certainly isn’t everybody’s situation. A long commute can be make or break—from missing dinner with the family to having to consistently say no to plans. Moving closer to work is a big reason many people choose to move, and if your daily commute is catching up to you, it may be something to consider.
