Have You Outgrown Your Current Home? Here Are Five Easy Ways to Tell If It Is Time to Upgrade
Your home is your castle, your own little piece of the American dream. However, lately, your little corner of the world has been feeling cramped, and you find yourself eyeing those larger homes on your daily drive, even the new construction all around you here in the DFW area. Is it time to pull up stakes and move on from your current home?
If you have added to your family in recent years, you may have more bodies than bedrooms. A two-bedroom home may have been a great idea when it was just you and your spouse, but with two or three kids in the home, and your home office, you are probably starting to have turf wars over the play area and bathrooms.
Overflowing With Stuff
From an overflowing toy chest to closets packed so tightly with shoes and coats you risk an avalanche every time you open the door. Your home just does not have the space for you and all your things. You may have even had to move some things off-site, spending money to rent storage space to keep that antique dresser your grandmother left you or the family treasures from Mom and Dad that you carefully collected and displayed for years.
No Rest for the Weary
You would love to spend an afternoon soaking in the tub, but before the warmth of the water can take you away, there is a banging on the door of the only bathroom in the house and a chorus of “hurry up!” invading your quiet time. What about that “Man Cave” you have been dreaming about for years? Those visions of a big screen television were shattered by the realization you needed somewhere for the kids to sleep.
No Room for Extras
When you first moved in, the two-car garage doubled as your woodworking shop. Now, all the equipment is in storage to make room for the family's second car. You would love to have a “She Shed” and even take up organic gardening, but your tiny yard barely has room for a grill and a lawn chair. You would love to host your family and/or friends visiting from out of state, but there is hardly room for their luggage, much less them.
Changes in Career
You may have even opted for a starter home when you first entered the market because you had a smaller income. Now, thanks to changes in careers or promotions at work, you can afford a home with greater square footage and room for your growing family that will provide the space you need for many years of happy memories.
Home prices in the DFW area are on the rise, however, it is a great time to search for and purchase your new dream home.

"Richard is an extremely driven individual with strong command of retail strategy. His business experience is deep and he leverages it to build an intelligent and holistic plan of attack that can be a complete game changer. His approach is consistent and he drives himself and his team toward a common goal with precision. His peers respect him and admire his team because he treats people well, listens and accepts feedback, provides valuable insight and has an extremely positive attitude. He has a very strong analytical mind.
I have learned a great deal from Richard and consider him a mentor. His pure and relentless desire to win will always lead him toward success. When I arrived at Radio Shack with limited retail knowledge, Richard immediately took me under his wing and taught me the important factors of successful retail, which enabled me to help his team build a strong foundation of leadership. As this was not in his job description, he did this on his own and showed me immediately why he was sought out for his expertise and mentoring ability. I worked with him in several capacities, and have enormous regard for his intellectual and professional approach to manager coaching. He is a person with true strength of character, which is critical to helping managers building leaders and careers. I am proud of what we have accomplished together and will always reflect on it and draw from it as I move forward in my career."
