When Is It the Right Time to Move?

Sometimes we stay in communities long past our internal clocks that tell us, "Leave.  This would be a good time."  From money challenges to a person staying with us that isn't ready to move, we end up staying and it feels like the walls around us are beginning to close in.  So when is it a good time, to get focused, and start preparing to move?

1.  When personal challenges with the property, staff, neighbors, and more are steadily increasing more than they ever were.

Maybe you were once the resident that never visited the leasing office or called property management, but now you are becoming familiar to them.  It seems every time you show up, there is something that needs to be fixed, neighbor woes, problems with paying rent, etc.

2.  When you have an "aha" moment it's time to move and recognize the fact that your residence no longer adds any value to your life.

Living in some communities can be more burdensome than we realize.  What we once thought was "perfect" is no longer that great when you are no longer working at the place near the apartment community or the amenities at the property mean nothing to you.  So why are you paying so much?  Re-evaluate why you remain where you are.

3.  When you find yourself wishing/hoping/wanting far too often for something bigger, smaller, less expensive, etc.

It is like you become obsessed with the idea of moving--all you want is to leave.  You are all-too-eager to save money, visit places, and envision your move out date before you even get a place.

Lastly, you know when the time is right when you can look in your bank account and see that there is enough money to move.  This is a clear indication that you can do it, but is your mind and heart in agreement along with the people you live with?
