Start Building a Plan for Your Move With These 5 Questions
Are you planning a move? If so, be sure to consider these five questions first.
Have you been thinking of moving on to your next home? If so, you’ve got a lot of choices ahead of you. Thankfully, you can narrow down what kind of property will suit you best by considering these tips and questions.
1) What area do you want to be in? A bustling cityscape, a suburban neighborhood, and the quiet countryside all offer a unique experience for those who call them home. Discerning which option will be most compatible with the lifestyle you have (or the lifestyle you want) will be a great first step in guiding your home search.
2) What is the cost of living for a given area? When moving to a new area, it will be essential for you to nail down how living in that location will impact your wallet. Different areas have different costs of living, so make sure to do your research before making your move.
3) How are schools in the area? If you have children, you will certainly want to look into school district data as you go about your home search.

4) How do walk scores (and bike scores) factor in? If you prefer to walk or bike to get around, knowing how well-suited an area is for these means of travel may be a point to consider.
5) How much are moving costs? Aside from the cost of living in the area you plan to move to, it’s also important to think about how much it will cost you to get there. You should have a clear plan for how you will handle, and pay for, the logistics of the moving process. For example, using a trailer to haul your personal vehicle behind the moving van may be a good way to streamline your move.
