Thinking of a better home for you and your family? Families grow quick and before you know it you have a bunch of little children running around. If you’re rapidly running out of space, or if you’re planning on having a family, then up-sizing to a larger home could be your best bet. However, there are a lot of other things you’ll have to consider when moving your family from one place to another.

  • Discuss: Make sure you plan this out well-ahead of time so you know that you’re making the right decision. First, make sure that you have the resources to move, if you don’t, then you may have to save up before you can do so. Discuss to your spouse about the possibility of a move, and see what they have to say. Once you and your spouse have discussed it, then talk to your children. Your children should have a say in this decision, and reinforce the fact that a new home would be better for everyone.

  • Looking for the best home: When looking for a home, bring your children along with you. Hire the expertise and assistance of a real estate professional and check out a few homes. Ask your children what they like about the home, and ask them what room they would like best. If you don’t have children yet, carefully check out each room and try to imagine a family living in there.

  • Look outside the home: You’re going to have to take a look around not only inside the home, but also what surrounds it. First, check out the backyard and see if they it is child-safe and big enough for children to run around (remember, children like to play outside).

  • Afterwards, take a stroll around the neighborhood: Walk to the nearest park and check it out, and if there are parents already there, ask them how the neighborhood is. As well, take a drive to the local schools, malls, grocery stores, community centre and parks, and take that all into account for your decision.

  • Using your real estate professional: Without a doubt, your real estate professional has sold homes to families before, so ask them what they think is the best home for you and your family. They can show you and teach you a lot more things than you know.

  • Keep up constant communication with your children: Even though some children would be excited to move into a new home, that doesn't mean they fully understand why or feel good about leaving the only place they’ve known as home. Explain to your children, and reassure that the move is for the better.

Older children and teenagers may be a bit rebellious and angry because of a move, especially if they are leaving their close-knit social circles. Never fight with your child and understand their frustrations, and try to keep up communication as much as you can. This should be a fun and exciting family experience, not a stressful one. After you have done all your research and made a decision, make sure everyone in your family is on board and start the packing. Remember, don’t forget to ask your real estate professional for help and advice, that’s what they are there for.
