Moving is hard enough, but moving to a new city is even harder (something we hear from dozens of apartment searchers every day). Besides using Apartment GuyZ to ease the burden, there are a few handy tips to keep in mind when moving to Denver — whether it is from across the county or across the state.
Here’s what we’ve learned.
Get a lay of the land
Familiarize yourself with your new home town by reading the city’s neighborhood guide. Our experienced locators can also help find the right neighborhood for you.
When checking out neighborhoods keep in mind what kind of lifestyle you’re looking for, your commute, and what time of homes are available in that neighborhood. Not all neighborhoods have townhouses, for example. Is walking to the grocery store a must? Or what about street parking and your commute?
When it comes to packing, have a game plan
Keep up the job hunt
Business is thriving in the metro area. If you are looking for a job, the Denver Post has a list of the top 100 employers in Colorado.
Denver = a home, but also a lifestyle
Go out and experience Denver! As exciting as moving to a whole new city sounds, the reality is daunting. Fortunately, organized social groups like MeetUp.com or aSport and Social Clubcan help. Kickball anyone?
Take it easy, relax and cut yourself some slack
You have more on your plate than usual with the move, take care of yourself along the way.
Once you do arrive, give yourself time to acclimate — not only to the altitude, but also to your surroundings. It can take many months to get into the swing of things and hey, that’s ok.
If you are already here, don’t forget to stay social and explore. Chances are there are a lot of new things in the city you haven’t seen or tried yet — and more new businesses are opening up every day!
