Regional living isn’t for everyone, but many people make the move because they’re tired of the city lifestyle. Whether they’re making a fresh start with a new career or want a bigger home and more land to raise their kids, regional migration isn’t as intimidating as it seems.

Here are our five easy tips for making regional migration an easy job.

1. Make a list of your requirements for your new regional area

Researching is the key to being prepared and making the best decision for your circumstances. Narrowing down the region you want to move to can be done a lot quicker when you make a list of what you want access to once you’ve moved.

List things like access to the nearest city, health care options, schooling, public transport; whatever you’re looking for. Then you can compare regions to find one that suits all (or most) of what you’re after.

2. Visit the regions you’re considering, before committing to a location

Taking small holidays or day trips to the regions you’re looking at will help you decide whether you like the feel of the place. You can ask the locals their opinions, finding out from people who live there what the area is actually like. This will be an invaluable help in your decision-making process.

3. Don’t buy until you’re absolutely certain

Renting is less of a commitment, once you’ve found the regional area you want to migrate to. If you’re still a little unsure of whether the location is right for you, you can rent for six or twelve months and make a decision then. You also aren’t tying yourself down with a mortgage, which could be difficult if you find out you’re not as happy as you thought you’d be. Renting makes it easier to ‘try out’ other regional areas to find the right one.

4. Join local groups

It’s hard moving to a new area, especially when you don’t know anyone. Make it easier on yourself and your family by taking part in activities with community groups, joining a local sporting club, or exploring other options through your work or your children’s’ school.

5. Understand that it takes time to adjust

If you think that you’ll instantly fit in and feel right at home, you’ll be in for a shock. Even with all the preparation and research, nothing compares to actually living in your new area. Be patient and understand that it takes time to really settle into a new place.
