Do you ever wish you lived closer to work? Some of the happiest people I know have the shortest commutes. Traffic stress, the cost of gasoline, and the hours wasted on the road take their toll.
Well, if you’ve ever been looking for a reason to move closer to your work, this might just send you over the edge. The truth is, it could be a major financial mistake not to cut a long commute out of your life.
This eye-opening infographic from Streamline Refinance shows you how much more home you can afford when you eliminate a long commute from your life. From their math, it looks to be anywhere from $15,900 (1 mile reduction) to an astonishing $477,000 (30 mile reduction)!
While you might have some arguments against their assumptions, I think the graphic is useful all the same: It gets you thinking about how you value your time and the “hidden costs” of a long drive to your livelihood!
Maybe it's time to move closer to your job. I work with families relocating all the time, and would welcome the opportunity to help you find a perfect upgrade closer to work!
