There are lots of reasons that could prompt a move, if you're currently living with your parents you might be thinking that it's time to spread your wings and gain some independence. At Belvoir Sutton Coldfield we have a wealth of experience in finding our customers their next place, so we've laid out some key factors that could help you decide whether it's time to move out...
Living with your parents can make things a little bit crowded, so if you crave some extra space, it could be time to move out. If you're under your parent's roof, it can make things difficult if you want to invite friends over, making it hard to relax. So consider how much you would benefit from having that extra space and the freedom that could come with it.
If you've just returned from university, you may be finding it hard to adjust back into the routine of living with your parents. So if you enjoy the occasional late night out, it can be tricky if you're coming back home in the early hours of the morning. At uni, it didn't really matter what time you were out until, but if your parents think that you're being a bit disrespectful by coming home late, then you may have to respect their wishes and find a place of your own. That way you can ensure you won't be disturbing anyone.
Depending on what your parents are like, living at home could mean following all their rules. This could include coming home before certain times, doing tasks and chores or even not being able to stay out overnight. If this situation sounds familiar, and you have difficulty following the rules, then you may need to consider the benefits (ie. no rules) of finding your own place.
Empty Nest Syndrome
You may find that you're living with your parents for their benefit rather than the other way around. Some parents find it incredibly difficult when their children decide to move out and they may want you to stay even if you feel like it's time to move on. In this instance, it's probably best to sit down and talk to them, explain that you'll still be around and will regularly stop by to check up on them, but you feel the time is right for you to find your own place.
