A couple years ago, I wrote about the importance of making your lifestyle upgrades as soon as it is physically possible. One of the most prevalent reasons for upgrading is to make life's experiences better for your children. The fact is that children are perishable. They expire on or about their eighteenth birthday, and any child-helping things you want to do for them have to be done in eighteen years. If they were ten when I wrote about lifestyle upgrades for your kids, there is now 25% less time for them to enjoy that upgrade before they stop being children. If you either ignored the message in 2009, or if you simply put off taking action, it's time to take another look.
If your home is too small for your family's comfort, or if another location would suit your family's needs better, now is the time to get serious about a change. Yes, you are going to lose your children to adulthood soon, and the years will peel away faster than you can imagine. Waiting for the market to do whatever you think it will do will cost you dearly. Dreams are meant to come to fruition before they fade into nothing but missed opportunities. You will be a parent forever, but you will only have children for a short time.
Call or email if you want to discuss real estate buying or selling and whether it makes sense for you. You and your family deserve the opportunity to pursue a better life.
