If homeownership isn’t new to you, it may be difficult not to notice the benefits of your investment.

You may also begin to wonder if it’s time to upgrade from a starter home into one that you and your family can grow into.

The following three reasons may have gotten your wheels turning about the possibility of upgrading into the home of your dreams.

You have financial wherewithal
Depending on how long you’ve owned your home, your financial footing today may not compare to where it was several years ago.

With the passage of time, you are likely sitting on a healthy amount of earned equity that can be reinvested to finance a home that fits your current needs.

Your monthly budget is always in the green
If your budget is well planned and well executed, you’re on track for the added responsibilities of owning more home.

That budget you’ve been following can help you understand the costs of running your home, which is information that can be extrapolated to understand new costs.

Your savings are built up
You may not have saved 20 percent for a down payment the last go around.

If your savings are at a point now where you can afford a substantial down payment, you may enjoy better mortgage terms and even lower interest rates.

Additionally, you can apply your savings to pay other costs that will likely arise from purchasing a new home. Moving expenses and simple home upgrades will also be on your list.
