Top tips to take the strain out of a family move to Shrewsbury

Like most of Shropshire, Shrewsbury is experiencing a building boom at the moment and with new homes, comes new families to our beautiful town. We all know that moving home isn’t the most un-stressful time in your life, but moving to a new place with a young family in tow could multiply that pressure a teensy-tiny bit more. But fear not!  The team here at Monks are at hand to help you to make that transition as smoothly as possible.

To help you to have the best moving experience that you can, we have put together the top 5 things that we think you need to be considering in the search for your new Shrewsbury home, to make sure that you find the perfect place for you.

  1. Research the area:

Shrewsbury may seem like a small town when you are moving from a city, but you will be surprised as just how large a place it is. Made up of lots of different areas, your new home could be in any situation when you come to Shrewsbury: part-rural, smack bang in town or in a suburban environment on the outskirts…there are lots of options. We have many years of local knowledge under our belts here at Monks, so always feel free to give us a call or pop in for a chat if you would like some insider knowledge on the different parts of Shrewsbury. As well as this, we would also suggest you spend some time touring the town, maybe staying in the area you have taken a shine to over a weekend, so that you get a good feel of the community that you are hoping to join. Apart from a brilliant excuse for a mini-break, we think that experiencing the Shrewsbury vibe, is the very best way to pinpoint the perfect location for your new family start.

  1. To rent or to buy?

For some, the luxury of a few weekends spent enjoying and researching Shrewsbury isn’t an option. If you are keen to move first then take your time making up your mind om the forever home, then perhaps renting is the best option for you? With a bursting portfolio of rental properties at our fingertips, we can help you to find the perfect stop-gap to ease you into the Shrewsbury way of life. Constantly updated, we are very proud of the live selection of properties to Let that we can offer you, so be sure to get in touch with our lovely Lettings Manager Marie and to make monks.co.uk your first job of each day.

  1. Keep informed:

Shrewsbury is a beautiful place – we know that, but so do all of the people that are choosing to settle here – so the competition for homes is growing. To be sure of finding the dream home for you and your family, you need to be on it when it comes to keeping up to date with the ever-changing market. Our website is constantly refreshed so that our customers have the very latest opportunities in front of them, so checking in every time you have a few spare minutes would be a good habit to have. As we all know, a problem shared is a problem halved, so be sure to tell us would constitute the perfect pad, this way, every time a home comes onto the market that fits your objectives, we can give you a call straight away, giving you that all important advantage.

  1. Think schools:

We are lucky in that Shrewsbury is full of great schools. However, when moving with young children, being in the catchment area for the school that your family feel most comfortable with, is vital. Be sure to forget the future needs of your family when picking your new home and to factor schooling into your search when you are narrowing down your location choices.

  1. Prepare the kids

Moving home and area can be a confusing time for little ones, so as well as spending some time talking to them about all of the wonderful aspects of their future home town, why not get in touch with some of our local parents and kids groups before you move? Helping you and your children to make some connections before you even move to Shrewsbury may help in the transition period. What better introduction to the town for you and your children than a play and a coffee (for you…with cake of course) with other local families in the same area. We are a friendly bunch here in Shrewsbury, so be sure to check out sites such as The Family Grapevine or the Facebook pages of some of the local schools, where parents will be more than willing to welcome you into the community.

We look forward to welcoming you to Shrewsbury. Please give us a call on 01743 261422 or send us an email with any questions that you have.
