Having a baby and need more space? Elderly family
Does your condo or apartment seem
cluttered? Are you thinking of expanding your family? If
you currently live with your significant other and are planning on
having children or taking on an elderly relative, keep in mind all
the additional items you will need to organize or store in your
For instance, when a baby is born you will need an extra bedroom or
nursery for all the babies’ things. You will also need a crib,
walker, swing, high chair, etc... Not to mention the abundance of
toys and clothes. You’re probably going to need an extra room for it
Many families are now helping elderly
relatives, too; and these additions come with a lifetime of
possessions. Moreover, it may be important to rearrange your
living space to accommodate limitations such as stair climbing, trip
hazards, or high-reaching.
Do you have have room for it all?
Extending your family is always a fun exciting time, but the
transition can also be very stressful. If you are planning on having
a baby, its usually is easier to plan ahead and save yourself the
stress of moving during pregnancy.
additions are another option to consider if you currently own
your home and can legally build on. One warning, though.
OVER upgrading your home and making it the biggest or best home in
your neighborhood may seem fun, but it won't bring you the return on
your investment when its time to sell. It may be best
(especially if you are already in one of the larger models in your
neighborhood) to upgrade now, while there is less to pack up! :)
Our advice is to plan well in advance
for your arrivals, and it's a good idea to work on creating
available space for all the extra items you will acquire.
Don't wait until your home is all filled up & cluttered, because
that could make it harder to sell. Get a head start and upgrade or
expand your space now. Contact us
