Proximity to work: One of the main reasons that people transfer to a new place is work. It’s assumed that, whether you have a car or will commute, the new neighborhood provides easy access and good travel time to and from your job.
Easy access to hospitals, markets, and entertainment: Accidents are unavoidable, so make sure that there’s a nearby hospital. For your food needs, that there’s a variety of places to do groceries and to eat out. And, for leisure, check for how close the place is to the cinema, concert halls, and sports venues.
Social life: You don’t want to be branded the new town hermit, so you’d want to go out and mingle with people. Check out the local bars and the nightlife, as well as popular restaurants, lounges, and coffee shops.
Fitness: Your new neighborhood must be conducive to your health. For your lifestyle and exercise needs, make sure that there’s a local gym and that scenic jogging, hiking, and biking trails are present.
Education: If you’ve children, it’s crucial that there’s access to good, respected schools near your new abode. Take time to research on their reputation and history.
