Thinking of relocating to a new place? Maybe you’ve been looking at a property for sale in Turkey or considering moving to a new place within the country you currently reside in? Either way, relocating can be a stressful process that requires plenty of planning before you go ahead with it – this way you can make it as stress free as possible.
When planning to relocate to a new place, there are a number of things to consider in order to make it less stressful – what are the employment opportunities like? If you have kids, what are the schools like in the area? What’s the average weather like? How affordable is it to live in the location you want to move to? The list goes on.
To help you make a start with relocating to a new place, here are our top tips.
How affordable is the location you want to move to?
The affordability of a location is extremely important. Before you move, do some research within the local area and investigate what the costs are like compared to the places you like.
For example, if you move to London what is the cost of a bottomless afternoon tea when compared to your local bottomless afternoon tea? How much does a coffee in the local coffee shop cost or the average price for a meal out? You don’t want to move to a place where the cost of living is so high that you struggle to do things each week.
What are the employment opportunities like?
Employment is very important as that is what pays the bills. If you are moving to a busy city, it’s more likely that you will get a better job vs moving to a countryside town – that said it could be more competitive.
If you can, try to secure a job before you move. This way, you are not stressing about finding one when the move comes a long. If you can’t see if your current company will let you work remotely. Remote working has become very popular since Covid-19, meaning companies are more lenient to it. Remember when you work from home you need to factor in the higher energy bills.
What are the local schools like?
If you have children, then one of the first things to look into is the local schools. What are they like and how do they score after their most recent inspection?
Moving is a big deal and can affect your kids more than you can imagine. You want to make moving them into a new school as simple and stress free as possible. It’s always worth organizing a meeting with the schools so that you can visit and inspect them in person. Prepare some questions in advance so that you are organized and can make sure the right things are being asked in case you forget.
