Before you start looking at new places to live, sit down with the whole family and communicate openly about what you each want from your next home. Consider everyone who will be impacted by the move, such as children, relatives, extended family, close friends or even colleagues.
On a personal level, is it important to have a gym within walking distance? What about schools, shops and restaurants? Give everyone the chance to have their say, and if your children are too young to offer their opinions, think about what will make your life easier as parents and go from there.
