Here are the top five signs that it’s time for you to move up:

1. Remodeling wouldn’t be worth the cost. Your home might need some remodeling work, but is all that work worth the cost? This is definitely something you should talk to a real estate professional about, but if it’s too much of a headache, you might be better off just selling your home and moving on.

2. Your family is at each other’s throats. Perhaps you have kids or extra pets in your home and there’s not enough space and it’s stressing everyone out.

“If you have a lot of equity built up in your home, it might be time to cash out.”

3. The neighborhood has changed. There may be too many people moving into your area, or it’s changing somehow in a way that you don’t like.

4. Everyone has moved on. If you’ve lived in the same neighborhood for a long time, your kids have grown up and moved away, and all your neighbors have moved away too, a change of scenery (or possibly a downsizing) might be what you need.

5. You have equity. If you have a lot of equity built up in your home, it might be time to cash out.
