Making the decision to move

Relocating from Sydney to Queensland is a big decision to make. It means uprooting your life and moving to a different state where laws, rules, and regulations may be completely different. For many people though Sydney is no longer a viable place to live. The housing prices are high, commutes take to long, and the cost of living leaves little left for savings.

If you are no longer enjoying the stress that comes with living in Sydney then it may be time for a change. Queensland offers an escape from the pressures of city living. While there are still cities here, the congestion and housing prices are not as bad as Sydney. You’ll find that the cost of living is a lot lower, making your life a lot easier.

How to prepare the family

It’s not always easy to move, especially when you have children. Moving from Sydney to Queensland may be quite stressful for kids as it is a big change to their life. They will no longer be near their friends and will have to adjust to a different school environment. It’s important to prepare them for the process to minimise stress.

Make sure you allow time for your children to adjust. Keep them updated on the moving process and to ensure they feel included. If you can, show them your new home before moving and let them pick out some new items for your home. If you have any friends with kids in the area arrange play dates for them so they’ll have some new friends when you move.
