Moving in Augusta

When it comes to moving, choosing where to move can be half the battle.

You may not have a choice over which town you are going to call home, but you do have a choice in the home! It is a big decision to choose a neighborhood. There are a lot of factors to consider and plenty of options to choose from. As Augusta movers, we have put together a few tips to help you choose the right neighborhood for you!

  • Schools- If you have children, this could be a big issue for you.  There are plenty of sites that allow you to see how schools rank in your area.  They also include reviews from parents so you have an experienced opinion.
  • Work- Consider the length of time it will take you to get to work.  This could cost you more money and time away from home.
  • Neighborhood- It’s a good idea to take a walk around the neighborhood itself.  Check out neighboring homes and get a feel for the area.
  • Amenities- Do you expect to have neighborhood amenities? This could be a deciding factor as well. Also, see how close you are to stores you frequent. 
  • Community Costs- Don’t just look at the cost of the home, but also consider taxes and homeowner association fees. You may also want to do some research on utility fees in the area and where you are getting those resources (water, electricity, gas) from.

All of these characteristics could be a determining factor in your decision. Do your research ahead of time so you aren’t negatively surprised by your choice in location.
