Why 2021 is a Great Year to Upsize Your Home

There are many great reasons to upsize in 2021. After a challenging year and new lifestyle changes that have impacted us all, now is a great time to upsize your home and finally gain the comfort (and sanity) you’ve been looking for.



Mortgage rates have hit historic lows, thanks to efforts by the government to stimulate the economy. Many metro areas have also seen a slowdown in-home price increases. Now that remote work is available for many Americans, buyers are free to stay farther away from their metropolitan workspaces, offering them more affordable options. If you want to grab more space at a lower price, now is the time to do it!



We should be comfortable in our living spaces while we occupy them. With larger home size comes more space to customize and organize your home just the way you like it, so you can truly enjoy your time at home. Want to splurge on a king-size bed or oversized couch? The sky’s the limit!


Enjoy the Outdoors

With a bigger yard, family playtime is more fun year-round and provides socially distanced outdoor entertaining options. A bigger garage means more room for outdoor activity and sports equipment or even another vehicle, so your family can get active as often as you like.


Work from Home

While working from home, it’s nice to have a dedicated office (or two) to be able to get all your work done, rather than try to work from busy common areas or the bedroom. Avoid disruptions by choosing the right floorplan that gives you the option to have an office space that is far from noisy playrooms.


Family Time

With more living room space, you can get creative with new playtime ideas that don’t just involve screens. Build a fort out of blankets or play a game of Twister! Also, when you opt for more dining room space, you’ll have more room to entertain family and friends from the safety and comfort of your own home.
