When Should You Move? Where Should You Live?
Young adults starting their careers and perhaps living on their own for the first time generally move into apartment complexes. After a while, they may move to a larger apartment with more amenities or to a condo that has more space than their apartment. Many couples begin married life in an apartment or condo.
Then their lives change. The couple has a baby or plans to have kids — they need more room. An apartment dweller wants to own a dog — he needs a yard and sidewalks. Young people who are well on their way to fruitful careers may be ready to invest in property. These are a few of the factors that cause people to move from a multi-family dwelling into a single-family home of their own.
Once someone makes the decision to relocate from an apartment or condo to a house, how does he or she decide where this home should be? Buying a house is the biggest investment most people will ever make, so careful thought of the location is of the utmost significance. What should you look for when deciding where to live.
The accompanying infographic, Go Big AND Go Home … Deciding When to Move and Where to Live, gives a list of the top five reasons people move from apartments and condominiums into single-family homes. It also provides tips for what you should look for in a new neighborhood-based on your unique situation. Review this infographic when you’re ready to make your move.
