Top 10 Signs you need a new home?

10) Turns out there is a reason the square feet you bought at a good price was so good

9) You made it. You got that raise, bonus, promotion or other professional goal and now you can get that house you've dreamed of

8) People always ask you how long you have lived in your house?

7) Your kids always go over to their friends house but never invite them over to yours.

6) It would be cheaper to move than to make all the changes to the home you would like

5) You realize the dream home theater system you bought does not fit into the space you measured it for and the existing wiring is not compatible with today's technology

4) You decided to build your own home for the sweat equity. Turns out you are not a home builder after all.

3) Realtors call you randomly saying they were referred to you by friends and family to sell your home

2) You have a new addition coming to your family and your wife is constanly asking you if you would mind if she puts the crib next to your bed since the other bedroom is full

1) You can't tell if you are staring at your neighbors or if they are staring at you!

8. People ask you why you live in a house that you cannot afford - just do a strategic default
7. Your kids go over to their friends house but never come to your house because you and the misses are having trouble paying the mortgage
6. It is cheaper to rent than buy or make changes to your underwater home
5. You realize that you cannot afford the dream theater system leave alone your about to be foreclosed home
4. You decided to build your own home and realized that you are not a home builder. Thank God for small miracles.
3. Realtors call you randomly. This they did even after tyou bought your last home so what's the difference?

1. You can't tell if you are staring at the neighbors or they are staring at you for getting conned into buying a new home based on cooked data supplied by the NAR.

Happy Holidays and a happy new 2012.
Don't repeat the mistakes of 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.

1. You just had a fire and the cellar still looks fine with nothing left above it.

2 Your insurance company told you that can not get insurance on the old house and building a new one would be cheaper than fixing the old house.

3 You just had a job offer 5 states away after being unemployed for 18 months.

4 You finally looked for the tires you took off your (mobile) home when it was delivered so you can roll it down to the dump.

5 The gators in the back yard keep sleeping on your front porch.

6 The snakes keep climbing into the house and are everywhere. You are tired of filling buckets up with live snakes.

7 Some guy named Jones just moved in next door and you know you can not keep up with him.

8 Property taxes and house insurance just increased a lot.

9 Your income has not doubled to allow you to pay all of the bills you are suddenly facing.

10 You have 3 kids and one bedroom.

(Bonus)
11 You can see smoke from the neighbors chimney proving they are to close.

12 You just died and new accommodations are needed for the future.
