What Should You Look Out For?
Before even looking at a potential location, it is important to be mindful of what your values and priorities are. For example, do you want to be in a place with a vibrant cultural scene? Do you mind if the cost of living is not low? The best way to take stock of your values is by drawing up a weighted decision matrix. This can help you if you have loads of criteria each with varying importance. Start with defined criteria like climate, access to healthcare, and transportation, for example. Next rank the criteria in terms of how important they are to you. Finally, view all the options that you have and compare them based on one criterion only and rank them. Keep comparing all your options based on each criterion till you’ve finished. Now, let us have a look at some criteria to help you with your decision-making!
