5. You can afford the move
It can be a good time to move if you have equity in your home, AND you can actually afford to make the move. Moving costs add up--Make sure to account for closing costs of the transaction, the costs of movers, repairs, painting, cleaning, utility transfers, as well as any increased carrying costs like insurance, homeowner’s association dues, and taxes.
6. You simply want a change
Perhaps you want a bigger kitchen and dining room for entertaining. Maybe you desire a more private yard with or without a pool. Or you want to move closer to school, work, or other amenities. Lifestyle change is one of the top reasons people look to move.
