Here’s all you need to know!
We often think we can manage everything in the city post our shifting but the question is can we do the same? Well, when we shift from a small town to a city, the life there may be quite different from what we had expected! The hustle, the living charges, the lifestyle, culture everything changes just in a jiffy and that too in a drastic manner. So, we have prepared a list of things you should consider before shifting to a big city from a small town:-
Decision To Shift:
It is imperative to rethink your decision to shift to a city. We often think city life is luxurious but after the reality hits us, we tend to change our perspectives. It is advisable to write down the pros and cons of moving to a city before the actual move. Jot down your perks of moving there, cost benefits, opportunities, safety, etc. And compare the same from the place you are currently living at.
Research The Cost:
When you are moving, definitely you will sell some things, while you will retain some things for your new house. Decide what to sell where after comparing the prices. Don’t take your belongings like vehicles or furniture if they are too old. Owing to the excess of supply of second-hand goods in the cities, you may incur a loss if you take something as such from your old home to your new home and then sell it months later.
Search For New Home:
We advise you to never move to a new city without having searched for your new place. One may find accommodation easily in a small town after shifting but in big cities, it is too tough to find the right deal and negotiate the same within a definite time. So, search for the new place. Do not take a risk of moving ideally.

When searching for the new house, make sure it’s a safe location for you. Do not rely on what friends and relatives say. Experience and examine it yourself and then only make a move. The location should not be too noisy at the same time it should not be too isolated. In the small town, both these areas may seem fine.
But in cities, if a place is too isolated, it can be really dangerous, while if it’s too posh, then you may keep on hearing the car beeps day and night.
The ideal location selection criteria should always include traffic and distance considerations. To calculate your cost of living with the distance you will have to commute daily to reach your workplace. You may try to choose a cheap location but later it can turn our to be too far and hence costly from your office or college. Also, if you don’t consider traffic right from the very beginning,
you may end up reaching your office late as well as exhausted every time. So, We advise you to search for a good location with mediocre rent and easy conveyance reach. You can locate nearby a metro station and can travel easily to half an hour distance.
