looking at real estate onlineLooking to move this year? There are a few questions to ask yourself before relocating to a new place. You will need to think about what works best for you and your family in terms of money, proximity to friends, nearby schools and other relevant factors.

Connecticut could be the best new home for you! Here are four things to consider before making a move.

1. The Community

It’s important for the culture of your new state to suit your own style and desires. Ask, “Will I feel comfortable here? Is there fun stuff to do? New areas to explore?”

Start by researching the neighborhood, where you will be spending most of your time, to be sure it’s the right place for you. Connecticut is known for its rich history and beautiful art. Enjoy museums, scenic hiking trails, beaches, breweries and more.

2. Buy or Build

Are you looking to buy or build a home? Since 1971, we’ve assisted with both! Over the years, By Carrier has been recognized with several Connecticut Home Builder Awards.

We offer several floor plans to accommodate any lifestyle and family size. Our architects work closely with your family to create the home of your dreams.

3. Education

Whether for your children or yourself, a good education system can be a high priority when moving to a new location. Connecticut has one of the best education systems in the country!

By Carrier neighborhoods are associated with some of the finest public-school systems in the state. In addition to public schools, there is a wide variety of successful private schools.

For teenagers and adult learners, some well-known Connecticut universities include UConn, Yale, Fairfield and Wesleyan.

4. Commuting

Travel times are another important thing to consider when relocating. Will it be easy to travel to and from work? Is there a nearby grocery or drugstore?

No matter the town, traveling in Connecticut can be very convenient for most people. A few major highways run through the state, along with popular commuter trains if you don’t or prefer not to drive.

Located between Boston and New York City, Connecticut makes traveling to the major cities for a weekend getaway or work trip an easy commute!
