1. Can You Afford It?
The first step is to figure out if you can afford to live in your chosen new area - as well as figuring out what kind of property is most appropriate for your budget. Contacting a local estate agent is the best way to do this. With their help, you will be able to determine what types of properties you can afford.
2. Are the Transport Links What You Need?
Your local area is likely to be something you travel around frequently - probably daily. A good transport network can play an important role in determining whether to live in an area. Look at your local estate agent's website for area guides to determine whether the location fits your lifestyle.
