Planning to move to a new city but not sure if it’s going to be a fit for you and/or your family?
It’s in the real estate agent’s best interest to persuade you to move and buy a house despite the fact that moving sight unseen might be quite difficult… As a result, they’ll make everything appear to be perfect even if it isn’t.
So what should you consider before you move somewhere new?
Here are some questions to ask!
What Are The Main Industries? — Ideally, the city’s economy will be supported by a variety of sectors. This question is also vital to ask so that you can get a sense of where you might be able to find work.
Is The City Walkable? — Cities with good sidewalks and bike lanes keep residents happy and healthy. If outdoor activity is important to you, then check out www.walkscore.com to determine how walkable the city is.
What Are The Best Neighborhoods? — Clearly, not all areas of a city are created equal. Some neighborhoods are prettier than others, and some are more expensive. Make sure you know your way around the area and where you want to live!
What’s The Cost of Living? — This is one of the most important things to consider when moving to a new city. How much is housing? How much are groceries? How much is gas? Do those numbers line up with your income?
