02 – Due to work
March 19, 2023

A new job in a totally different area is another reason people choose to move house. Some people decide to stay in the same area, but move to a bigger house because their new salary allows them to. However, losing a job inevitably forces some people to downgrade and move to greener, more financially secure surroundings.

What to look for if you’re moving with work

If you’re moving to a new city, and you’re just renting, you should stay somewhere comfortable for the first six months. While you should be comfortable wherever you live, what we mean is an initial flat or apartment slightly above budget. Living in a nice area where you don’t have to worry about walking home late at night, or anything home-related for that matter, will give you an opportunity to explore and make new friends.

If you’re moving to a new city, and you’re buying a new house, it’s really important to pick somewhere that appeals to your sensibilities. If you’re an outgoing person who loves the buzz and the noise, moving closer to the city centre has its benefits. You’ll have a finger on the pulse, never being far from festivals and events. If you’re someone who enjoys their downtime, a leafy suburb with direct transport links to the city centre might be more suitable. Of course, your financial circumstances will limit the extent of your choice.
