    Why You Should Consider Moving to a Big City

    There’s been a push for people to move back into cities recently.  We want to feel connected and close to each other, and nothing says close, quite like over a million people living within two miles of you.  Here are some of the best reasons to move to any city and make it your own.

    More to Do

    Cities are overflowing with opportunity and chance.  Turning down a different street than usual can invite you into restaurants and shops you’ve never heard of, and a chance encounter could have you at a club you wouldn’t find otherwise.  There’s always something new and thrilling to do in the city, and unless you’re a stickler for fine dining, most of it is inexpensive!  Why go to the same bar you’ve gone to since your early twenties when you can party at a new hot spot every night?

    More People to Meet

    If you’ve been feeling isolated or cut off from people in a spaced-out suburb or rural area, a city may feel like culture shock.  Not only are there more people per capita, but they’re also all a lot more close and personal.  This can take some time to adjust to and might not be for everyone, but it’s an excellent way for you to meet new people whenever you want to.  You won’t have to worry about being lonely as long as you put in some effort to get out there.

    Fewer Allergies

    Many don’t consider when they’re looking at Calgary homes for sale because moving into a city can cut you off from pollen and other allergens.  This cleanse doesn’t mean you’re free from all allergies; if you have a dust or pet allergy, it could worsen in the city: but seasonal allergies will be over for you.  This problem may sound small to some, but for those who have to sneeze for two to six weeks out of the year because of ragweed pollen, or even grass pollen, this can be a much-needed release of sinus pressure.

    More Chances for Career Advancements

    If you feel like you’ve been stuck at the same point in your career for the last couple of years, it may be time to consider advancing and changing it up.  Larger cities mean more firms, companies, or clients who are willing to hire you for what you do or more.  Bigger cities see more employment competition, which means jobs will reward those who stay with them longer more readily. An excellent job in a large city is more likely to have upward mobility than working for a smaller one in the suburbs.

    More Ways to Make Money

    If you don’t like to get tied down to one company or contract, you can be a free agent in the city!  Not only are more people available to be clients, but there are also way more ways to make money in the town.  Some full-time work jobs traveling between people’s apartments and watering their plants, while others invent jobs as they go and make a killing at it.  There’s a demand for almost everything in larger cities, which means anyone can make bank.

    I love living in bigger cities for all the above reasons and much more. How about you? So let me know your thoughts below.

    Wishing you a great day!

    Much love
