When you are looking for a new home and are not sure if you want to remain in the city, it can be hard trying to decide if you are ready to live in the suburbs. Here are some of the benefits of living outside the city limits:
*Employer Commute Services: Some employers provide a commuter program that covers the cost of commuting via public transit. This means you can save money on transportation costs as opposed to worrying about rising gas costs due to the longer drive.
*Less Congestion: New areas tend to have less congestion which can mean cleaner air. This is ideal for families looking for a cleaner, greener living environment for their kids.
*Larger Homes: You will get a lot more bang for your buck when it comes to the size of the homes in the suburbs. You will get a larger home for less money.
*New Home Options: There are also a lot of brand new home options you can purchase. This means you can order your home to meet your needs and start from scratch to build your dream home.
*Younger Families: You will also find many newer housing developments have younger families, ideal if you are starting a family of your own.
*Greener Parkland: Although many cities have lovely parkland you can find some beautiful housing developments with beautiful parkland built right into the infrastructure.
*Less Crime: There tends to be less crime in suburban areas than you will find in many neighborhoods in the city.
*Ample Amenities: Many people worry there are not as many amenities in the suburbs. However there are many malls and Big Box stores being built everyday and as your area grows so too will the amenities. There are often arenas, public pools, libraries and shopping within a few minutes drive and in some areas even within walking distance.
*Family Friendly: You will also find the restaurants and shops are family friendly unlike some of the higher end establishments located in the city.
Sports and Activities: You will find plenty of sports and activities for the kids in the suburbs.
As you can see there are many reasons a suburban home might be the perfect option for you and your family.
