So you are moving to Chicago, but Chicago is a large city with so many neighborhoods and suburbs to choose from. Before you choose your Chicagoland moving company, you need to choose a home. The process may seem overwhelming at first, but following these three easy steps you should be able to narrow it down to the areas that best suit your interests.
- Create the profiled of your ideal neighborhood. What home styles do you like? A new construction or a historic neighborhood? How close is it to work? To public transportation? Also compile attributes of neighborhoods you definitely don’t like.
- Find areas matching the neighborhood you described. Make a list of all the suburbs and neighborhoods that seem ideal based upon the information you have gathered.
- Get the facts. A neighborhood may seem ideal based upon its style and charm; however, is it really ideal? You will want to find out if it is near areas of high crime. Learn about the school district in that area. Would your home draw into a preferable school district? How is the commute to work?
