At some point every home owner will come to this dilemma. The house that they fell in love with just isn’t doing it anymore. The reasons will be unique to every person but the good news is that it’s not as hard to move on as you think. Not sure if you issue warrants a home divorce? Here are 5 common issues that will have you wanting to divorce your home in no time!

1. It’s NOT the neighbourhood you moved into years ago.

This is common complaint I hear from home sellers in certain areas of Mississauga. The city has grown so fast over the past 15 years and some neighbourhoods have completely changed in that time frame.

In some cases, what were once quiet family neighbourhoods have become busy, overpopulated areas filled newer development and rentals. In some areas, the profile and demographics have changed.

The neighbours you loved have moved out and now you want to move too. There’s a great variety of neighbourhoods in Mississauga and the surrounding areas to choose from, and knowing a little more about each area will go a long way to helping you.

2. Size.

Size is something no one ever complains about until they don’t have enough it. This is especially true for single people and younger couples, where the chances of additional people (or little ones) joining the household are high.

I always say that before you buy a home, think about what your life will look like in 5 years.

3. The home no longer fits your needs.

Just like in relationships, people change and the key to a long lasting one is adaptability on the part of everyone involved. Maybe that big 4 bed house is just too much now that the kids are gone to university, or maybe living in a shoebox in the city is not your cup of tea anymore? It’s not the home’s fault!

Face it that you’ve changed and move on, but before you do, make sure to you know what upgrades will add the most value to your home.

4. Your life circumstance has changed.

As a whole, people in general are resistant to change. Perhaps you have landed a new job that will add another 30 minutes of commuting time? Many people will try and stick it out at the detriment of their lifestyle. I say if your home isn’t improving your lifestyle and happiness, move on!

5. Finding a newer, younger version.

I’m being a little sarcastic and having some fun, but here’s where real estate and marriage differ. It’s perfectly OK to cheat on your home and no one gets hurt. So go ahead and look, touch and maybe even go out on a date or two. Before you know it you might want to find a new home to call home.

There you have it, 5 signs that it may be time for you and your home to get a divorce. The good news is that unlike in marriages, divorcing your home can fun, painless and much cheaper!
