Has it ever bothered you that you have bad and noisy neighbors? Or that leaky faucet that the landlady takes forever to fix keeps on dripping at night and leaves you paranoid and awake? Or the fact that your current place doesn’t have enough space for you and your growing family? Why settle when you can score well? It’s not always about just getting by with what you have, but actually enjoying life, finding rest, and having just more peace of mind. Well, truth be told, finding ain’t so easy.
Upgrading doesn’t always mean bigger. It just means you are making things better. And upgrading to something better, as with almost all other upgrades in all aspects, might mean you have to use more effort. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to use more finances, it just might mean more effort in finding a much more suitable and better place. Bigger and expensive might not always mean better.
Think about the future. Think about how things will be. No, things won’t always remain the same. You might do the same things day in and day out, but not everything will be the same. Your job might get better. You might find yourself to have another kid on the way. And staying as you are, is not the choice to make anymore. Some things have got to change, to change for the better. Thinking much more on it, might do worse. You have to act on it.
So how does one trade up or find a better place? With everything in life, it requires effort. It requires time. Some things don’t always just fall on your lap like some rich kid get hand overs. You have to go find it. You have to work for it. Homes for sale won’t come to you, you have to find them. Real estate might be different from apartments, but they’re the thing called upgrades. If you have enough finances to stay and buy one, then by all means do so. But if you don’t and you find yourself needing the extra buck, then you just have to find a better apartment than the one that you have. That doesn’t mean you are settling for anything less.
Apartments are different from houses not just in size, but also in maintainability. Sometimes or most, the landlords of your apartments are the ones in charge of the maintenance of the other utilities that you use. That just means that you don’t always have to bother yourself with that. Having a house of your own might just mean that you have to fix things for yourself. It might be more spacious, but time will come that you will get broken and there will be no landlords or maintenance guys to fix for you. Then you’ll have to hire someone and pay more.
Considering things is wise. Not all people do that. Finding a home is good, though maintaining a semblance of that might be hard, though it still is good. Find somebody that is worth coming back home to.
