3. Are the Local Amenities Suitable?
There are some people who want to live near lots of amenities - schools, colleges, supermarkets, leisure activities, or local parks. Others may be less concerned with these things. It depends entirely on your lifestyle what amenities you want in a given area. You can find out about local amenities by exploring the area and contacting an expert estate agent.
4. What are Crime Rates Like?
It's a good idea to investigate the local crime statistics if you feel particularly concerned about the crime rate in an area due to having children, elderly relatives, or another reason. You can do this online via police.uk to analyse the results. The statistics can look scarier than they sound, so it's a good idea to compare them to where you live now before making a final decision.
5. What Employment Opportunities Are There?
You won't be concerned about local employment opportunities if you plan to retire to a new area. You should check out available jobs and salaries if you plan to work close to home when you move.
