How to Tell When It’s Time to Move into a New Apartment?

Congratulations! You’re finally settled into your new apartment. It’s decorated how you want and you feel at home, so why would you ever want to leave this place? It’s hard to imagine that you would ever want to leave the space you put so much time into – especially if it’s your first apartment. But, as happy as you may seem now, there are many reasons why it might be time to move into a completely new space, especially if your lease is up. If you’re questioning whether or not you should move on, here are some tips on how to tell when it’s time for you to move into a new apartment and start the next chapter of your life. 

You’ve Outgrown Your Place

There are many reasons why you might start to feel that you have outgrown your current apartment. It could be that you’ve acquired one too many things that need storage, or your apartment preferences may have changed. You might be living in a modern studio apartment and decide that you’d prefer the layout of a larger one-bedroom, or even the style of a townhome. Things may be a little tighter if you’ve recently gotten married or even just moved in with your partner. Extra little ones can also make your current place seem smaller if you’ve just become a parent (congratulations)! Additions to your family, whether they be a baby, a roommate, or a new furry friend, bring along the need for extra bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage. 

You Can Now Afford a More Luxurious Rental

If you’re better off financially now than you were when you moved into your first apartment, you may want to upgrade your living style. A contemporary style that includes a modern gourmet kitchen, luxury flooring, marble countertops, in-unit washer-dryer, a private entrance, and luxury community amenities are very popular, and may even be within your budget as time has passed. Upgrading to a more luxurious apartment is a way to celebrate all your hard work! Who wouldn’t want a premier resident clubhouse that features a full kitchen and a spacious club room or a picnic area with barbecues right outside your door? You may have fit into the lifestyle of your current apartment perfectly when you moved in, but if an upgrade is either necessary or desirable, moving into a new apartment may be the best option for you.  

You Got a New Job or Need a Shorter Commute

Normal 9 to 5 workers can spend hours commuting to and from their place of work each week. If your current apartment location isn’t commuter-friendly, it may be time for a change. If you have to drive 20 minutes to a source of public transportation to get into a more populated area (like NYC) or drive an hour each way to the office – neither of these daily commutes are ideal. If you need a place that suits your work week schedule, start looking for a new space! Living in an apartment complex that is within walking distance from public transportation, downtown, and offers parking options for every resident can make your Monday to Friday much less stressful.  

It’s Time for a New Neighborhood

Whether you’re in the heart of a big city or the middle of a quiet suburb, a neighborhood change might be exactly what you need. Being in a safe area is very important, especially for individuals who live alone. If you love the nightlife scene, having a place that is close to restaurants, bars, and other fun weekend activities might be your reason to move on. If you are considering moving, the location should always be a top factor of where you reside.
