Moving Out? 7 Reasons To Stay In A Smaller Home
Large. Not so small.
Not so large.
What are you even thinking!
Come, see, here’s why you should stay in a smaller place:
1. It’s Easier To Maintain
The greatest mistake most folks itching to move into a larger home make is ignoring the hidden (not hidden if they did their homework) bills, services and other extras that come with having bigger space. If you stay put in a smaller home, your payments on water, energy, mortgage and others stay on the bottom rung.
2. You Save Money When Buying
Okay, don’t take my word for it. Visit any real estate site and check out the top-quality apartments you can get for lower costs. They’re most definitely all smaller places.
3. You Earn Environmental Karma
A smaller home will mean you’re going easy on the materials and fittings, so thumbs up to you for making the environment safer and more useful for the next generation. Who knows, when “mother earth” is punishing those who have constantly desecrated her, your karma points will come to your rescue!
4. You Can’t Buy Fluff So You Go For Top-Notch
Staying in a smaller home keeps you on a lean budget. If you walked into Walmart when you had large space in your kitchen, there, will you suddenly remember you need (when you don’t) vintage cookware sets.
With a smaller space, you’ll spend more on the best stuff out there that makes life easier.
5. You Boycott The Interior Decorators
Smaller apartments mean you stop spending on superfluous decorations, and if you need any, a few tools from stores and an hour of your time is the most that’s needed.
6. You Have A Large, Hungry Market To Sell To
So you’ve decided you don’t need the place any longer? No worries. There’s a larger market out there to pick up your home the second you list it for sale.
7. It Strengthens Family Bonds
Smaller homes usually provide fewer places of relaxation for members of the family.
So, instead of each person coming home and locking away in the rooms, everyone shows up at the relaxation room where you’ll have those healthy gossips that are good for bonding.
So there you have it. Now you know you’re not an idiot for staying in that small home.
