When it comes to moving to a new home, it can be all too easy to stick to your comfort zone. Literally. According to a recent study, there were only 14 miles between the average American homebuyers’ new home and the one they moved from.
Urban areas are typically favored by young couples because they offer entertainment, shopping, and nightlife within walking distance. However, once you start a family, you may begin to feel that 14 miles may still be a little too close to the city for your comfort.
That being said, here are a few reasons why you may want to consider leaving the city for a new home community for your next real estate move.
- Urban real estate isn’t set to improve
The real estate market can be unpredictable, especially when you’re a buyer. It’s for this reason that many American homebuyers will opt to hire a real estate agent to find them the best home possible in an ideal neighborhood. However, this can be difficult in an urban area when the top neighborhood to live in can change by the year. A new home community won’t change so quickly so you won’t have to worry about moving just after you’ve started making mortgage payments.
- Urban areas don’t have as much yard space
It can be stressful getting everything into the car just to go for a hike with the kids and your dog. However, when you live in a new home community there’s plenty of yard space for both the kids and your furry friend. What’s more, the extra bit of green helps provide you and your family with better air quality.
- Urban living makes you more stressful
When you live in an urban area, the constant exposure to lights (even at night) can have a detrimental impact on your sleep. What’s more, the crowds of people and the constant go-go-go atmosphere can leave you feeling drained. This can increase the amount of stress you’re under, which leave you feeling depressed over time. By moving to a new home community, you reduce your exposure to urban noise and constant stress.
