At RKD Property Group, we’ve worked with a lot of homeowners in Connecticut who sought to relocate in order to be closer to family.
And we get it. Family is important.
There are a lot of reasons someone might want to move closer to family — help with raising kids, health issues, or simply a desire for camaraderie. Whatever the case, here are some things to consider when relocating for family…
- How Close is Too Close? — Being closer to family is great… but there is such a thing as being too close. At the very least, make sure you have some space of your own where you can retreat to when you need a break.
- Budget — How much can you afford to spend on the move? This will impact everything from where you move to, how quickly you sell your home, and even when you move.
- Location — What neighborhood are you going to live in? You might want to be just down the street from your family, in the same house, or maybe 30 minutes away. Everyone’s situation will be different.
- Lifestyle — What lifestyle do you want to have after the move? The neighborhood you choose and the amenities it includes (or doesn’t include) will have a big impact on how often you go for walks, go to the park, attend local events, etc.
