Moving is a stressful and exciting time. It’s basically picking up your life and redirecting it to another town, city or even state. When you’re moving it can be stressful, but the fun part is picking out your house and neighborhood. Maybe even living in your dream home soon!
There are a couple things that people may forget to think about when looking for a house. They’re not how old the house is or who the next door neighbors are, they’re a bit more important. We’ve complied a list of the impotant things that you can’t forget to look for when you’re moving:
1. Schools. Millions of families move every year. They have small children, or even kids in high school. One thing to make sure is that there is a school nearby and the school’s ranking system. Is it an A school, B school and so on.
2. Look at the churches. Many people are people of faith and they like going where they feel they belong. It’s always a good idea to visit your potential churches to see how they are and where they’re located.
3. Parks and trails. Everyone loves being outside, especially with young kids. Parks are a great way to tire them out and to get a little exercise. Looking for parks close to your new home is a great idea.
4. Grocery stores. This is a huge one that should not be overlooked. Unless you grow everything yourself or if you get farm fresh meat, grocery stores are a must. Different states call them different things, and in Florida, they’re noramlly referred to as Publix. Luckily here, they’re in every major community. The distance to the grocery store is important just as important as the school.
This list is compiled of smaller thing to remember, but they’re still very important. These are embedded in some of our habits and they’re essentials to life. If you have any questions about what else to look for when searching for your dream home, contact us here.
