Benefits of Moving to the Burbs and Using a Professional Mover

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, people are more conscious than ever about the importance of social distancing and staying away from crowds. What is more, a growing number of Americans are now working from home. That is why now is an ideal time to move out of the crowded city to a more spacious suburban home. Are you considering getting out of the city and moving to the burbs (suburbs)? Here are seven of the main benefits of moving to the burbs, along with the advantages of hiring a highly qualified and experienced professional mover.

1. More Space

Probably one of the primary perks of a suburban home is that it's more spacious, both indoors and outdoors. If you have a family, consider how your children need room to grow and play. Larger homes generally have more bedrooms and bathrooms, meaning that kids can have more privacy since they can have their own rooms.

2. Safer and Healthier

With crime continuing to escalate, especially in large cities, it is more critical now than ever that you live in a safe neighborhood. It is no surprise that overcrowded cities suffer from more crime than suburban neighborhoods as the burbs have fewer people. Thus, if you are worried about crime, start packing and call a top-rated moving company.

Health can be another reason to move to the suburbs. Consider how since the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a significant link between population density and more Covid-19 cases.

3. More Tranquility

Another benefit of the suburbs is that it is much more peaceful and quieter. When you live in the suburbs, you can get more rest because you will not be disturbed by blaring sirens, honking cars, and other common noises common to cities. Just think about how a peaceful, quieter environment can lead to more productivity for both yourself and your family.

4. More for Your Money

Although moving to the suburbs is not always cheap, you still get more for your money or more bang for your buck. In other words, you get more square footage, along with other features. That is why it's a good idea to consider a suburban home if you're looking for a larger house that includes upgrades and high-end features.

5. Convenience

A huge advantage of moving to the suburbs is convenience. For example, instead of worrying about expensive and limited parking, you can have your own garage. This is especially beneficial, especially during inclement weather. Furthermore, the suburbs offer convenience as they have a wide range of shopping, restaurants, parks, and other amenities for families. Moreover, you do not have to daily battle traffic and crowds, which can affect your health.

6. Better Schools

In most cases, the suburbs have higher-rated schools, which is one of the primary reasons why families choose these types of neighborhoods. Higher-rated schools typically mean a better teacher-to-student ratio. Along with having a better school system, your children have a greater chance of making neighborhood friends. But even if you do not have children, just living in a good school system can make your home more attractive to home buyers when it comes time to sell it.

7. More Privacy

Many homeowners choose a suburban lifestyle because it offers more privacy. But this does not mean you have to be isolated. Life in the suburbs can also include having neighborhood barbeques and chatting over the fence with neighbors. Compared to city living, a suburban lifestyle gives you considerably more privacy. In other words, you get to choose if you want to socialize.

And, if you are planning on foregoing the suburbs and instead moving to a small town, our friends at Redfin have some things for you to consider.

Advantages of a Professional Mover

  • Contrary to what some people may think, using a professional moving company can save you money.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
