If you are new to town, you may not have any idea where to live. Don’t worry, there are plenty of online resources that can help you solve your problem. Local bloggers, town websites and social media can provide you the facts and information needed to make an informed decision.
Read A Local Blog
The first thing you should do is read what the local bloggers have to say. They will have insider information regarding the best places in town to be. Information such as home values, schools and shopping centers will be discussed at length. If you spend enough time reading them, it will feel like you have been living there for years the moment you arrive in town.
Go To Community Websites
The town or city that you live in will most likely have some sort of website that lists all kinds of community information. Property values, taxes and community events will all be listed. You should even be able to find out when the next town meeting is.
Those can be great places to meet people as well as get a feel for the local politics and culture. Fitting in is hard to do if you aren’t aware of how things are run where your live. Information about enrolling your children in school and youth programs should also be available on town or county websites.
Tune In To Social Media Chatter
People will talk about almost anything on social media. There is a good chance that you will find out a lot of good information from locals on sites like Twitter and Facebook. Twitter is a great resource for finding out information because it is easy to glean from the overall chatter online.
All you have to do is type in a # as well as your new town’s name in order to find out what people are saying. For example #BuffaloNY will bring up lots of information about what is going on in Buffalo, NY. Facebook can help you find local businesses that may be hiring near where you want to live.
Finding a great place to live takes a little bit of hard work and research. You need to know where you can go to find information about your new town. Wandering around town hoping to find something that catches you eye can be a time consuming process. Looking online for the information that you need is both effective and easy.
