Go Big and Go Home - Tips on Moving
Deciding to move is one huge decision followed by a series of many more choices. Once a renter realizes it is time to invest in property, they are faced with the first decision- where to move? Which city? Which neighborhood? What’s important in this decision, and what’s worth sacrificing? How do goals dictate the size, space and/or location of a new place?
Finding a property you like in the right spot, with the right amenities and within budget can be hard. When someone’s on the home hunt, here’s a look at four of the factors that come into play:
- Size of city: Buyers need to determine if they are looking for somewhere low key or if they are interested in living somewhere with tons of activity and things to do.
- Budget and jobs: If you cannot afford the home, it’s the wrong home. This is why job opportunities near your home can directly impact how easy or hard it is for homes to sell.
- Transportation: A commute can have a sign
- Morning commutes can make a big impact on life, so many buyers will favor homes that make it easy to get from point a to point b.
- Local amenities: From good libraries to strong hospitals, the attractions and amenities of an area can definitely make it more desirable. Other in-demand features include parks, shopping, restaurants, culture and entertainment.
