Moving from one home to another is always a difficult decision to make. After all, we are all creatures of habit. The thought of having to move to a new community is daunting. Whether you need to re-size your home due to a growing family or relocate due to work, it can be made that much more difficult when leaving a community that feels like home inside and outside your house. It’s important that you do your research to make the transition as smooth as possible for you and/or your loved ones.
Researching communities is the best way to ease that transition. While you may not have the option to replicate your current experience, especially if you’re moving from condo life in the city to a larger space in a new suburban location, take into account what you love about your current neighbourhood and see what others have to offer.
Let’s say, for example, you have a gym downstairs at your condo and you’d like to stay active. Does your new condo have a gym? Does the new neighbourhood have trails to run or bike lanes to keep you active close to home? While the exact experience is always difficult to replicate, making a few concessions or evolving your thought process can lead to a similar lifestyle within a much different experience.
Good schools and infrastructure are also a must. You want your children (or future additions to your family) will require a great school and other facilities like a library and community centre. A good infrastructure will keep your children’s minds and bodies active while keeping them out of trouble and in safer situations.
Now is there anything to do in your neighbourhood? Having grocery stores and shopping centres nearby can reduce traffic and help you manage your time better. Also, having nice restaurants and theatres in your community can help you and your loved ones enjoy the surroundings quicker by becoming integrated in the social fabric of your new home.
