Are you planning on moving to Southern California? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
In this article, we will offer you several helpful tips that you can use for moving here.
Tip #1 – Choose the Right Geographic Location
The first thing to do before moving to Southern California is to choose the right geographic location that’s close to your place of employment (ideally 10 to 20 miles away) because, you can significantly lower your daily commute by choosing a location to live that’s close to where you work.
After researching and finding the right location you should next review school districts if you have children, nearby shops/stores/ restaurants, and of course amenities that are offered in the location you want to live.
Tip #2 – Connect with A Local Realtor®
Once you’ve identified several locations which meet your search criteria you should next connect with a local Realtor® who specializes in that area of Southern California.

Tip #3 – Make A Trip to Southern California Before Moving Here
After identifying areas in Southern California that you would be potentially interested in moving to you should next plan a trip out to SoCal so you can see those areas for yourself in person.
This step is vital to any relocation plan because, when you tour different areas of Southern California you could find that one area is better than the other and ultimately save yourself the time, money, and hassle of moving somewhere that you won’t enjoy.
Tip #4 – Narrow Your Focus
Last of all, but most importantly, after you’ve identified the perfect area that you want to live, and actually toured that area in person, you should next narrow your focus on the following criteria:
*Budget – Know exactly how much money can you spend on a home?
* Type of home – Are you searching for a single-family home, condo, or townhome? How many bedrooms, bathrooms or square footage will be sufficient?
* Area – After touring different locations in Southern California you should have also identified the exact location that you want to live. This tip is important because, once the right home comes to market, you will be able to take advantage of it.
