Three questions to know if now is the right time to make a move.

I’ve had a lot of clients reach out to me lately asking about whether or not it’s the right time to move. The answer always comes down to these three questions:

  1. What are the pain points? Pain points are why the house that you’re in isn’t working for you anymore. Some examples are: needing a fourth bedroom, the great room not being so great anymore, or needing a secondary living space to get away from the kids.
  2. If we remove those pain points, does everything else make sense? Otherwise, do you need to look at moving to a different city? Do you need to get closer to or farther away from San Francisco? Do you need to move closer to or farther away from family?
  3. Will the benefit of moving outweigh the pain? If your desire to move is greater, then all this stuff isn’t going to be a big deal. If you want to move but the pain of doing so is higher than what you’re willing to go through, then you should hold on.
