Happiness resides where you live!

Real Estate Agent with Prado Real Estate South UT DRE# 6541633-SA00

Happiness resides where you live!


Before pulling up roots in an area where you have lived for any length of time to explore other areas to relocate, please do the required home work. There's more to it than just falling in love and making that long term commitment.


Once you have made the decision to move, hire a local, experienced real estate agent to help guide you to an informed home buying decision. By being proactive, your geographical transition will be confidently smoother.


Visit potential areas that fit your search criteria and check out the following offerings:


  • Weather - Like palm trees or pine trees? Outdoorsy? Take a look at days of sunshine, activities such as skiing, golfing, hiking, biking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, and camping.


  • Job Market - How does your profession fit into the local business climate? Think about gainful employment or if in a free spirited occupation, entrepreneurial opportunities.


  • Cost of Living - Be sure you can afford utilities, groceries, transportation, child care, health-care and price of goods and services that are required for maintaining an average level standard of living.


  • Overall Economic Outlook - Take a look at trends and what drives employment, interest rates, energy, housing and spending. Determine if the area has an attractive business climate.


  • Arts and Entertainment Atmosphere - Spending a night on the town pubbing, dancing or catching a performing arts venue to your liking? This may include musical theater, ballet, minor or major sporting events. 


  • Neighborhoods and Communities - Visit during the day but also at night and weekends. Knock on neighbors doors and ask questions to gleam an honest, realistic view from residents. 


And if you find that St. George or the southern Utah area is the place, please contact me at 435.632.9374 or wanda@buynsellutah.com. Glad to help with your residential real estate needs because Wanda Can!

Good morning, Wanda --- great advice for those thinking of relocating --- many people should do more research before making such a major move.  There's no doubt in my mind that those thinking of St George will be in good hands when they contact you should your city be their destination.

Good advice Wanda Kubat-Nerdin a lot of job seekers came here during the oil boom hoping to make big money. They failed to consider not everybody gets hired on and the cost of living was insane during the boom, like studio apartments renting for $2,000 a month.

Wanda-Very wise advice. I learned some things I wish I knew before I moved here that affected my health coverage. Don't miss the winters in NY but good health care is important.

Wanda,  There is more to know about a community than just falling in love.  That is why people want to hire someone who truly does know the area and can add more value than finding them a home.  Because,  there is more to know!

So many things go into deciding where we're going to be happy. At the end of it all for me...it's family.
