Add On or Move On - Remerica Hometown REALTORS

Is your home starting to feel a bit crowded? Perhaps your family has grown, and you need more bedrooms or another bathroom to accommodate everyone comfortably. Maybe you need extra space for an aging or ailing loved one, or office space to accommodate a new or growing home-based business. If your home no longer meets your needs, you have two basic choices in resolving this problem: Adding on or moving on to a new home.

So how do you know which option is best for you? Are you better off looking into local builders, or is shopping Ann Arbor homes for sale your best bet? The answer to that question depends on your particular circumstances, and here we'll outline some important considerations that can help you make a solid decision on whether to add on or move on.

  1. Do you love your home?
    Does your home have unique features that would be difficult to find in a new one? Perhaps your neighborhood is perfect for your family, with an awesome community, great local schools, and wonderful neighbors. If so, adding on and settling in for the long haul may be the right choice for you. If, on the other hand, you're not emotionally attached to your home or neighborhood, moving on might be a more practical route for getting into a home that has enough elbow room to meet your needs.
