When it’s time to move you have a lot of options. This is especially true these days when most people are working remotely and can live anywhere they want. It’s possible to build your own house and get exactly what you want in your dream home. Or, you can choose from one of the many move-in ready homes Utah has on the market.
Where you should move is also a big consideration. Location is as important as ever when it comes to buying the right house. There are two main options when it comes to location. You can choose city life or suburban life. In this article, we will go over things to consider so you know which area you should buy in.
Many people dream of starting a family and then buying a home with a white picket fence. While the idea is nice, this life may not be for everybody.
Life in the suburbs is great for a few reasons and not great for others. Among the positives, you will get a lot more space in the suburbs than you will in the city. You will have plenty of room in your house to live the lifestyle you like. Plus, having a yard where you can grow a vegetable garden or entertain guests in the nice weather is a huge plus.
The downsides are that you have to get in your car for everything that you need to do. Even something as simple as getting a bottle of milk because you ran out but don’t otherwise need to go shopping becomes a hassle. Often, commuting to your job is also annoying since you will likely live far from it.
Those are the things that you will have to put up with to get the other benefits of living in the suburbs. If the space you are looking for can only come in the suburbs then you will have to accept that those are the downsides.
When you live in the city you have everything at your fingertips. You can usually walk to do the things that you need to do like shopping, going to the movies, or even commuting to work. Life is active and exciting most of the time. If you feel like the city is your living room then you won’t mind having a limited amount of space.
Life in the city can also be overwhelming. Sometimes the lack of space is very limiting and can be frustrating. If you want to grow your own vegetables and be more self-sufficient then that is usually not an option.
It is also crowded and loud in the city without many ways to get a break from those problems. It can also be more expensive than living in the suburbs even though you may be saving on car expenses.
In short, the city vs suburbs debate comes down to the lifestyle that you want to live more than anything.
