3 Easy Ways To Find Your New Lifestyle Location

A tip here:  Do your research. Carefully.

I’ve known people to move to places because they’ve had a nice holiday or friends suggested the area was good. That’s not exactly a great way to get to know an area.

Speak to as many people as you can – from newcomers to people who have lived in the area for a long time.

Ask them: What are their impressions? What do they like about an area? What are the challenges of living in the area?

Are the good and challenging parts of living in the area the same for all age groups?

Visit at all hours of the day/night.  A lady emailed after she had bought a copy of Where To Retire In Australia. She said they had bought their dream piece of land in a coastal area.

‘I wish we had visited the block of land during the night. The noise of trucks lumbering up the hill was way too noisy’.

Ambassador Max, one of our Ambassadors. said that he would not have moved to his lifestyle location if he hadn’t read Where To Retire In Australia.
