Sometimes people put off moving for years on end even though they may not be in the perfect place. The moving process can be overwhelming, and even if there are opportunities to save money with cheaper rent, or shorten a commute time, or find somewhere out in nature with more privacy, it’s easy to get stagnant and avoid any moving!
Where you live can determine the next few years of your life. It’s easy to stay in the same place, but maybe it’s not the right place for you. Japan has so many available apartments, and there’s probably something out there that’s more appropriate for you. Whether you’re wanting a shorter commute time, more privacy, more space, or even cheaper rent. It’s all out there so now is a great time to start looking and planning for your next move!
If you have a long commute to work, or even to the places you enjoy going to in your free time, perhaps now is a good time to consider moving.
Although some people sacrifice having a long commute time so that they can save money by living somewhere cheaper, it does come with its consequences. Having easy access to work and other necessary amenities is one of those consenquences. A long commute time can be draining and can limit your free time. Feeling like you spend most of your time traveling to work or to other places? Now may be the time to find somewhere more conveniently located for you. At Village House we offer rental accommodations that are centrally located in big cities or in convenient commuter towns, so please check out our apartment hunting tool.
Location is often the top priority for people when apartment hunting, so, if your current location doesn’t feel right for you, take a step towards building your dreams and start hunting for an apartment where you won’t be concerned by an overly-long commute time.
Save Money with Cheaper Rent
Maybe you’re looking to move into the house of your dreams in the next few years, maybe you’re wanting to set up a business, go traveling, or start a family. Whatever our dreams are, we often need to save some money to make them happen.
Moving to somewhere with cheaper rent can be a wise choice if you’re at a point in your life where you’re trying to save money!
Small savings can be made by cutting out coffee, eating out, and finding the best deals at the store. These are a great foundation to start on for saving money, but rent is often such a significant portion of our wages. Moving somewhere with cheaper rent can lead to massive savings each month. In some buildings, you can save 3000-4000 yen a month simply by swapping floors. That could be around 50,000 yen a year for living in the exact same size apartment, in the same location, even with the same layout and in the same condition!
Other easy ways of saving money with cheaper rent are through changing location, apartment size, age of the building, or coming across a good deal! Village House in particular has great deals that have larger apartments at lower rates even in convenient locations! Check out our available apartments near you to see if any of these could help you make great savings.
Sizing Up and Increasing Storage Room in your Apartment
People often need to move to bigger homes with more storage room to accommodate many needs. This is obviously a good time for many people to move. However, sometimes moving to a larger space may benefit you greatly without fully realizing it. Especially now that so many of us are working from home, it’s become clear that having a separate workspace and living space is really beneficial for building a happy and mindful life.
Hobbies can bring so much joy and meaning into our lives. So, if you have a hobby that you want to invest more time into, or a hobby that requires more space – moving into a new apartment that’s more spacious may not be such an outrageous idea. If it’s what brings you happiness, it is important to treasure it!
Similarly, if you are running a business from your home, or if you want to set up a small business from your home, you may need to move to a larger living space. Having separate storage spaces for your business can make it much more professional, bringing more success, and it can therefore pay off the cost of renting somewhere larger.
Overall, having space and ample storage room is an important factor for moving for anybody. Being able to have sufficent storage space for your work, hobbies, and possibly business is key to having a fufilled home!
Having a sense of privacy and somewhere that feels like your own safe space is important. If you don’t have this then maybe it is time to consider moving to a new apartment. Perhaps you still live with family, or you live in a shared house or an apartment that is just too small. Moving to a larger apartment often allows for more privacy.
Other ways to find more privacy for a new apartment are by finding apartments with separate rooms, so choosing a ‘2K’ apartment instead of a ‘1K’. Moving into higher floors of an apartment block, or moving out into more secluded and less populated areas can also offer a sense of privacy.
