Relocating to a new town or neighborhood is a momentous decision, and before you decide where your new home will be located, you should do your research and make sure that the community has all the benefits and amenities that will help you lead a relaxed lifestyle. When you are relocating, take these factors into account.
Many young couples move out of the city of Chicago proper when they want to start a family so that they can afford a home with a large yard and space for outdoor features such as patios and even swimming pools. If cramped city life does not suit you, be sure to research which suburbs have properties that meet your criteria and fit your budget. If you want more space, you will have to live further out.
While you could save a lot of money by buying a house more than 35 miles away from downtown Chicago, you will have a very long commute through heavy traffic if you work in the city. There is a ring of suburbs, such as Lemont and Naperville, which provides the perfect combination of space and city accessibility.
Gated communities offer a number of amenities that single-family homes in denser neighborhoods do not. Often, homeowner’s association fees pay for landscaping maintenance, and communities within golf courses often offer discounted memberships to homeowners. Other amenities might include community pools and spas and increased security.
