We all know that there comes a time in life when downsizing seems to be the sensible option; we’ve even written a blog about it. But what about upsizing? How do you know when it’s time for more space? Sometimes the idea of a little ‘growing’ room can bring with it concerns about associated costs. While a larger home is always likely to cost more (dependant on location), the benefits of finally deciding to upsize can be life-changing. At Bayleys Marlborough we thought we’d write this week’s article to help you decide whether it’s time to think about upsizing.
Growing up is hard to do when space is an issue:
- It goes without saying that if you plan to start a family, it could be time to think about the need for space. But, let’s say you have the right number of bedrooms for family members… What might not be quite so obvious is that as your offspring get older, there comes the point when you all benefit from a little extra space. It might be a rumpus room for hanging out, a sleep-out above the garage for independent teenagers, or even just an extra bathroom to ease the pressure of the whole family getting ready at the same time in the morning! At Bayleys Marlborough we can help you find a home that grows with your family!
Combating guest fatigue:
- We all love sharing Marlborough with our nearest and dearest. And who can blame our guests for wanting to stay a while? But if you’ve had open house throughout the summer, we wouldn’t blame you if a little guest-fatigue had started to settle. Upsizing to a home with an extra living area can help to ensure that entertaining overstayers doesn’t become a chore!
Balancing your home work life:
- If you’re one of the increasing numbers of New Zealander’s who have left the cities behind, but kept business ties there, working from home in Marlborough is a great option. Especially with the welcome news that Air New Zealand is cutting regional airfares, read more here. That said, all home workers need to be able to separate their home from their work. Upsizing can help you find the balance you need.
