Should I move? 8 signs it may be time to start looking

Sometimes we all get the feeling we’d like a change of scenery, but how do you know when it’s really time to move? Here are 8 signs that your feeling is not just restlessness or a whim – and that it really might be time to make a move to a new home and community.

  1. You need more space. You can change a lot of things about your current home, but it’s not so easy to change the size. Even if you own your home and could theoretically add on, it’s expensive. Adding a new master suite to your home can cost between $21,500 and $63,100 in 2019, according to HomeAdvisor. At Hollyhock, you can find a brand-new home ranging from more than 2,200 square feet to more than 4,300 square feet, at prices from the high $300,000s to the $700,000s, by some of the leading homebuilders in the Metroplex and the nation.
  2. You want an upgrade. If you love your existing home and neighborhood, renovating can be a good option. The cons include having to live in the home through the renovation, going over budget, and possibly not being able to recoup the costs of renovation, should you decide to sell. Today’s new homes offer many advantages over used homes. This is especially when it comes to the latest technologies for home automation and energy efficiency, which can be difficult or impossible to retrofit into existing homes.
  3. A new job opportunity. If you have an exciting new job opportunity in a different city, then moving is a must. Even if your new job is in the same city, a smart move can give you a new lifestyle and a less stressful commute. Hollyhock’s terrific Frisco location offers quick and easy access to the Dallas North Tollway and all of the Metroplex.
  4. You want your dog to be happier. Hollyhock’s parks and trails are heaven for dogs, and your leashed four-legged friend is also welcome at many of our outdoor parks. Your dog will also love a new home with a big backyard, and maybe even special amenities like dog showers, available from some of our builders.
  5. Something’s missing. At Hollyhock, many new residents tell us they felt like something was missing from their old neighborhoods. They didn’t know their neighbors. The amenities consisted only of a small playground or a rarely used swimming pool. There weren’t many playmates for their kids. Meet just a few of our resident families: the Baxters, who chose Hollyhock for our highly regarded Frisco ISD schools; the March family, which loves the community’s lifestyle events; and the Thomases, who moved here from California and say they never want to leave.
  6. You have too much space. We hear a lot about rightsizing, and it works both ways. Adding more space can be stressful and expensive, but it’s not even possible to shrink your current home, apart from just closing off rooms. For homebuyers wanting to scale down and simplify their lives, Hollyhock offers a wide variety of one-story homes in many different styles and price ranges. If you want the perfect compromise between a one-story and two-story home, you can also use our interactive Homefinder to explore the growing number of 1.5-story homes offered in Hollyhock.
  7. Your family situation changes. Sometimes a family’s living situation can change, such as when an aging parent becomes part of the household, or an adult child returns home. Hollyhock offers multigenerational floor plans from several builders. These plans can be built with optional “home within a home” living suites that provide everyone with their own space and privacy.
  8. You want better schools for the kids. For many homebuyers, the desire for better schools can trigger a decision to move. Learn more about the highly regarded Frisco Independent School District serving Hollyhock. Even if you don’t have kids in schools, research has shown a strong connection between quality schools and property values.
