While moving can be a real drag, sometimes it’s obvious that it’s time to go. A move can be just the thing you need to jumpstart your life and invite positive change. If you’re unsure whether or not you’re ready to take the plunge, here are 10 signs that now is the time to move to McCall.

1. You’ve outgrown your space

Have you resorted to renting a storage unit, even after you’ve de-cluttered your home with the KonMari Method? Then it may be time to upgrade to a bigger space. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some room in your closets and cabinets again?  McCall has many rural properties that offer enough space for  a home, a garage workshop and a storage shed.

2. Your finances have changed

Are you making significantly more or less money than you were when you moved into your current space? If you find yourself with nothing to spare at the end of the month – or much more than you know what to do with – then you might want to consider moving into a home that is more in line with your current financial situation. Our agents can guide you through the properties that meet your current financial situation.

3. Your family is growing

Are your kids getting tired of sharing a room – and there’s another one on the way? Or maybe it’s time to start a family and you’re not happy with your current school district. Either way, a growing brood is a good indication that it could be time to move into a home that is more family-friendly.  The McCall area is a great place to raise a family and offers a variety of public schools in each community as well as faith-based schools and charter schools.

4. The house feels empty

Are your kids off to college, or grown with their own families? Do you suddenly find you have more rooms than you know what to do with? Why not downsize so you have less to take care of?  McCall has become a popular retirement choice because of the abundant recreational opportunities.  The choices for homes include a variety of condominiums and town houses in a wide price range or a nice home on one of the many golf courses.

5. The neighborhood has changed

Are crime rates going up?  Are there more empty houses or yards that aren’t being maintained? Sometimes neighborhoods change. If you don’t like the way it’s heading, it could be time to go.  McCall, like many mountain towns, offers a change from many of the common problem of urban living.

6. You hate the weather

If you are tired of driving three hours to go skiing, then living in a mountain town may be the solution.  If the heat is getting to you in the summer or the air quality, again McCall may offer a more temperate summer.   The beauty of living in McCall is that Boise is just 90 minutes away, so when you are getting spring fever all you need to do is make the drive.  By March, in Boise the grass is green and the flowers are beginning to bloom.  Or head to Riggins, and hike the Rapid River trail for some beautiful spring wild flowers.  All four seasons offer something that everyone can enjoy in McCall.

7. Your commute is wearing on you

Studies show there is a direct link between commuting time and happiness levels. If you’ve found your good mood waning recently, think about moving closer to your job.

8. You’re in a new relationship

While we wouldn’t recommend moving every time you meet someone you like, there are moments when you know you’ve found the person you’d love to spend the rest of your life with. If your current place is too far away from them, it makes sense to move closer.

9. Your house needs work

Are you getting tired of making trips to the home improvement store every weekend? Is your to-do list getting longer instead of shorter? Then maybe it’s time to give your wallet and your free time a break with a new place that requires less maintenance.

10. You like the idea of a fresh start

Sometimes there aren’t black-and-white reasons to move. Maybe you’ve just gotten the itch to explore a new place, to expand your horizons. And that’s perfectly okay. If your intuition tells you that it could be fun to move on, then now may be the perfect time for a new adventure!  Maybe it is time to move to McCall.
