When you decide to move to a new location whether it is after buying a new apartment/villa or getting a home for rent, it is very important to ensure that the new location you are moving to will match the lifestyle you were used to. From simple things like having a nearby grocery shop to having your office or your child’s educational institution close by, there are a million other factors that will affect your decision of moving into a new location. To ensure that you don’t miss out on anything that will make your life comfortable at your new home, given below is checklist for anyone planning to make a move:

1. Connectivity:

Deciding to move to a new place or buying a new home is always a decision taken after several years of great thought and ensuring that certain details about the location like its accessibility or connectivity is crucial. Always remember that even if you buy a luxurious apartment or move into a comfortable 3BHK home, unless you’re easily able to commute to work, school, hospitals or anywhere that you would want to go, you are sure to experience a huge discomfort even in your new home. Nothing makes us as happy as being able to experience easy access to public transport and necessary sector roads. It is always important to ensure good infrastructure, proper sanitation and drainage facilities before you plan to relocate to your new address.

2. Safety and security:

In the world we live in today, safety and security are the key factors that determine our well-being. Visit your new location at different parts of the day and night to ensure that it isn’t unsafe after it turns dark or even in the early mornings. It is important to keep a check on the distance to the nearby police stations, in case you need to approach them for any emergency. It is also important to check if you will be living in a guarded community, which most apartments and villas by good builders provide these days. While choosing to move, always opt for a location that is high on security.

3. School and educational institutions

Before you can start calling your new location ‘home’ or before you buy your dream home there are certain essential factors to consider about your location. Ensuring that good educational institutions are located close by, will keep your away from worrying about how your children will get to school on time. Also, having educational institutions that are far away from where you live will make their journey to school and back extremely tiring!

4. Healthcare facilities

Choosing a new 2 BHK/ 3 BHK apartment or a villa requires you to do an intense research on a location that brings everything close to you and good health care facilities is not an exception. When you are caught in a medical emergency at home, the last thing you would want to do is travel a long distance! Look up the nearby hospitals or first aid clinics near your home to ensure that even in case of any emergencies, you wouldn’t have to fret.

5. Banks and ATMs

There are some things that you ignore in the process of picking a new location for your residence. One such factor is the presence of a bank or an ATM close to where you live. The proximity at which both these are located is sure to influence your comfort of availing timely banking services.

6. Gas connection

When you’re in a hurry to move into your new flat or home, one of the most essential factors you must never miss out is the availability of a gas connection. You would need to apply for it by filling a form online or asking for the form from your new apartment’s maintenance office. Since it takes a few days to get the connection, it is very important to apply prior to moving in. You simply wouldn’t want to move in to your new house and not have a gas connection intact.

7. Shopping centres

Having a shop close by for all your needs is always a necessity. From buying regular groceries, to daily essentials, stationery or even raw materials from a market, is extremely convenient when you have shops close by. Do make a clear list of all the shops in your locality before you move into your new home.

One of the most difficult tasks even while living in an apartment in the most primelocation in your city is to find a house help or maid. It is always advisable to check if they are easily available in the new place you’re shifting to and to also find out their range of monthly salaries.
