Identifying your needs
The first thing that you will want to get done before anything else, is identify what you need from your new home. This will be informed by a number of different things. The biggest thing to consider is your living situation. Are you living alone, in a flatting arrangement or perhaps you have a family? Whatever the situation, you will need to find a home and a location that caters to your living situation. Another thing that you should consider is your work. You will want to live in a place that facilitates your employment, whether that is new employment or the continuation of your current employment. You will also need to think about what your budget is for moving home. It's all well and good if a place meets your needs, but if you can't afford it or if the cost of living is too high, then there is no point. Hobbies and interests are another thing that may inform your needs and should be considered. If you like to spend all of your free time surfing, you will need to live somewhere that allows you to do that.
Finding a new home
Once you have identified your needs, you are then going to want to find a home that meets those needs. This means two things. You are going to need to decide on where in Australia you want to live and you will need to find a home that meets your needs in that place. From examining your needs, you should have a fairly good idea of the kind of location that you will want to live in. Perhaps you already have an idea of where you want to live, but if you don't, you will need to look for places. A good way to go about this is to use google, using search terms related to what you are looking for. For example, if one of your needs is a good secondary school for your children, you could google 'Best secondary schools in Australia'. This would give you a good idea of what options you have available. By repeating this with your different needs, you will be able to identify a good place for you to live. From there you will need to look at what is on the market, again keeping your needs in mind.
Moving home is a process with a lot that needs doing. There are a lot of things that you may or may not need to do based on your specific circumstances. Nevertheless, there are also a good number of things that you will always have to do. One of these is packing. When you are packing, you will want to make sure to properly sort all of your belongings and label all of the boxes that you are using. By doing this, you will make sure that you have a much easier time when you unpack. On top of this you will want to make sure that you organise a moving company. This will make your move significantly easier and in many cases is an absolute requirement for moving home. You will also have to do various things such as cleaning and fixing things to get your home in a good condition for the next owners. The specifics of this will differ based on what needs done.
