It’s the city that never sleeps: The Big Apple! There is something in the New York air that makes sleep useless. With 8 million people how can you ever be lonely? Well, you might never be lonely but chances are if you’re moving from the suburbs it might feel a bit cramped. It will certainly be different. NYC is glamorized in the media and it can have its magical moments, but it also can be an adjustment. Both Sharon and I work with buyers that are born and bred New Yorkers and also with people from every corner of the globe moving here for the first time. Today we are discussing how to set your expectations when moving to NYC. Regardless if it’s just from one borough to another or from across the world.

You want to ask yourself some questions such as how do you see yourself living in the city. Do you want to see shows? Are you drawn to Central Park? Are you a foodie and want to live downtown with everyone who is hip? Lifestyle is important and imagining your life in the city can help you adjust to why you are moving here and what you will get from it.
