So you’re thinking about moving. Maybe you’re tired of your current home and want to spice things up, or perhaps you’re relocating to be closer to friends and family. Before you commit to moving, take some time to consider these things.
Ask Yourself Why
The first thing you should do is ask yourself why you’re moving. Whether you’re leaving a state or simply moving across town, you’ll have a lot of changes if you move. Of course, there are obvious reasons for a move, like a job offer, but if you’re moving spontaneously, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of leaving. Once you decide that a move is a good decision for you, you’ll be able to move forward.
Consider Your Budget
Moving can be expensive. From saving for a deposit on a new home to paying for moving expenses, you’ll be spending more money than usual. How long will it take for you to save the money you need? You don’t want to make an impulsive decision and have your finances affected as a result.
Decide On A Timeframe
Once you have a budget, the next step is deciding when you’ll move. It’s never too soon to start planning, and you’ll be able to create a packing plan based on the timeframe you create. You may even have time to host a yard sale to declutter.
Research Your New Home
You may be looking at new schools for your children or a new job market. Regardless of where you’re going, you should research your potential neighborhood to get an idea of things like walkability, proximity to restaurants, crime rate and diversity. The things you’ll research will vary depending on your priorities.
