Thinking of moving to a bigger house (10 Marla & 1 Kanal house in Al Rehman Garden Phase 7)? There are a lot of good reasons to upgrade the size of your home.
The number one reason most people move to a bigger home is life transitions: moving in with a partner, getting married, getting pregnant, babies turning into toddlers, kids turning into teenagers, or ageing parents moving in with you. Of course, more people usually need more space…but life transitions often mean you need a different kind of space too. That might mean upgrading to a house from a condo to have more privacy from the in-laws or selling your townhouse because your toddler is struggling with the stairs, or needing a yard for the kids or a basement for the teenagers or a nanny suite for the nanny. Moving to a bigger home during life transitions can help reduce stress and set you up for success.
You Need More Space
The high prices of homes in Toronto mean many of us are living in homes that are smaller than we want them to be. Your closets are overflowing, you’re renting offsite storage lockers, you’re sharing your bedroom with the baby and shipping your parents off to a hotel when they visit. More space just might equal more sanity.
You Want An Income Apartment
Many smart Toronto homeowners rent out part of their homes to help subsidize their mortgage or allow them to live in a neighbourhood they couldn’t otherwise afford. It’s not always easy to turn an existing basement into an apartment, and unless you want a roommate, you can’t turn your condo into an income-producing investment. The solution? Move to a bigger home that already has income potential.
Buy a Bigger House To Save Your Marriage
Will a bigger house make you happy? A bigger home can be a marriage-saver, whether it’s a second bathroom for your spouse (I speak from experience) or multiple living/TV areas so that Selling Sunset can be watched at the same time as Hockey Night in Canada. A bigger home means there’s less clutter to fight about and more places to hide when disagreements inevitably happen. And of course, there’s that all-important real estate truth: Happy Wife, Happy Life. And yes, this is true for husbands too, it just doesn’t rhyme as easily.
