01 Jun Deciding to Move to the Countryside
Moving out to the countryside from the big city is a life changing decision that many people are starting to consider. Estate agents in rural locations such as Stonehouse estate agents TGRES are experiencing a high demand for rural properties from people who are looking to move away from the city and embrace countryside life – but if this is something that you are planning on doing, here are some of the things that you should consider before making the change…
Work – Lockdown saw many people move their office into their home, and since then there has been a rise in people now permanently working from home., If this is the case for you, then living in the countryside should be easy, but if you are expected to go back into the office in the city, then you will need to think about transport to and from work.
Opportunities – For the whole family, there is no denying that there is a lot more opportunity in the city. Whether for work or for schooling, city life offers more. However, the countryside is also a safer place to live, with lower crime rates.
Pace of Life – If you thrive on a busy and hectic lifestyle then country life is not for you. The pace of life in the countryside is generally much slower and as there are less amenities and services around things can take a lot longer. However, this slow place of life can do wonders for your stress levels!
