#2 Local Features And Amenities

If you have young children, you may have moved where you did for the sake of it being near a school, or maybe you moved so that your home was local to where you work? The point of moving home is to be near the things you need so what would be the point of moving somewhere that doesn’t provide the businesses and access to amenities that you need?
