When considering to buy a new home, the financial risk is huge. You need to find a property that is a worthwhile investment, whilst being in an area that you love. Some people dream of living in the big city, some people yearn to be on the beach front, and some people crave the peace and quiet that pure nature brings. Making the right choice for you is so important. This post is going to explore some of the pros and cons of a big city and a quiet placed immersed in nature.
This obviously has so many benefits. Health being a main one. The air is so much purer when you’re away from all the pollution of a city. You can use the land as a resource, and just generally have a better level of wellbeing. There’s something about the peacefulness of being away from all the hustle and bustle that really clears the mind. The real estate is also so much cheaper, and the designs are mostly a bit more quirky. You can either choose a house, which will have an extra bedroom or bathroom for a fraction of the price of that in a city. You could also look to buying a quirky log cabin, such as the ones found on chinquapin real estate. This can be such a good investment idea. You could use it as a family home for most of the year, but rent it out for some to use it as an additional income. People are so attracted to log cabins, it’ll always be popular. Nature is a great way of bringing the family together, and expanding children’s imagination. There’s so much more to play with and explore when surrounded by the forest, rather than a street of a busy city. One negative of this area however, is it is most likely a further journey to the shops than it would be in a city. But if you can look past this, it might be a worthwhile consideration.
There is so much excitement going on in a city that it’s hard to ignore. There would literally be something to do every day that would keep the whole family entertained. There’s always amenities right around the corner, so sourcing necessary goods is never an issue. The majority of the population resides in a large city, so it’s always easier for your children to make friends and socialise. There’s so much more for adults to do as well. With restaurants, bars and things such as theme parks in abundance, you’ll never be looking for something to do. One negative to a city would be the health risks. Pollution is at such a high level at the minute, you can really notice the difference in air quality between the two. With so much to do food and drink wise, comes so many issues such as obesity and diabetes. People are being drawn in by the supersized food and amazing deals, that it’s hard to choose healthy foods over a good bargain.
