Countryside, Coast, City: Where To Move?

Moving is part of life, albeit a stressful part. Part of the stress of moving lies in the difficult decision-making process of where to live. The countryside or the coast, city center or suburb? What works for you depends on the reasons for your move and what stage of life you're at. Here are some top tips and suggestion for where to move and when…

When To Move?

The motivations for moving vary from person to person. Getting a new job in a new area is a big reason that people move. Moving closer to friends and family, wanting a different pace of life, retiring, are also all reasons that it might be time to make the move.

Why Live By The Coast?

Coastal towns and cities are hugely popular for people looking to relocate. The main appeal is the quality of life that these places can offer. Whilst they are outside of the hustle and bustle of a central business district, they have their own charm. Check out Brighton Real Estate to see some coastal properties that enjoy the best of both worlds. They’re quieter than a city, but because of tourism, they usually have a good amount of shops, bars, and restaurants too. Again, because of the influx of visitors, coastal locations often have great transport links too.

Another reason to move to the coast is the number of outdoor activities on offer. From sailing and yachting to paddle-boarding and kayaking, if watersports are your thing the coast is a good idea. It’s a great place to move if you want a slower pace of life, but not miss out on any of the action. Plus there’s usually some great seafood on offer!

Why Live In The Countryside?

The rolling hills and lush lands that define the countryside are popular for those who want the antithesis to their busy city lives. It’s also popular amongst couples looking to start a family away from the city. The quality of life can improve for some who live in the countryside, and a respect for nature is important for most inhabitants. Moving to the country is also a good use of money. It’s often far cheaper to get a larger house here than it is in the city.

Another reason people move to the country is that they have retired and want to live somewhere quieter. The countryside is a great place to pursue hobbies and the community spirit is far greater than in a city.

Why Live In The City?

The city is the perfect place to live if you love a cosmopolitan way of life. Those looking to find work and climb the career ladder usually choose to live in a city because of the number of opportunities. Whilst throughout the week cities bustle with workers the weekend is equally as busy. Some of the best restaurants can be found in cities and there’s usually lots to entertain.

Where would you choose to live if given the choice?
