When you first moved into your house, you probably felt like the king or queen of your castle. But over time, as you began to accumulate everything from furnishings and appliances to children and pets, your home may seem to have shrunk.While the square footage hasn't changed, your living space has likely undergone a significant downsizing with so many other people and things fighting for house room.Wondering if there's a move in your immediate future? Check out these 9 signs you've outgrown your home.
If you're lacking counter or drawer space, you may resort to using your staircase as a place to stash everything from toys and shoes to books and junk mail. While it's tempting to take advantage of this otherwise-wasted area, you're increasing your chances of falling -- especially when you're in a hurry. Don't do it!
2. You're forced to host your Super Bowl party in shifts.
Sure, it'd be nice to have all your friends over for a visit at the same time, but there's nowhere to sit and soon it's louder than a Rage Against the Machine concert. In other words, it's not pleasant for anyone. Don't lose half your friends just because you can't fit them in your place.
3. The line for your toilet reminds you of Lollapalooza.
Anyone with a family and one bathroom will tell you the whole situation stinks. (Pun intended.) Especially as kids approach their teen years and showering is no longer considered a punishment, needing another bathroom becomes imperative.
Short on closet space? It can force you to get creative. But keeping your toiletries and shoes in your car is no way to live. If you've gone out to your mini-van in pajamas in search of more toothpaste, it's time to start looking for a new home (with plenty of closets!).
5. Sending the kids to a boarding preschool is sounding better and better.
Lingering longer at the gym? Last one to leave the office? Letting friends and family know you're available for Thanksgiving when it's only August? If you'll do anything to avoid going back to your cramped abode, it's time to pack up and move along.

"Have worked with Bruce Garrison on several deals. If you are looking for a realtor who knows the market, can anticipate and handle any problems that may arise, is a shrewd and tactful negotiator, and is a responsive and customer service oriented realtor you can't go wrong working with him or his partner Steve Thomas. I have known them well and had extensive professional experience with them for several years.
