Choosing A Place To Live

Deciding The Best Place To Live

East, West, Home is Best.

When choosing a place to live it is important to evaluate all the underlying factors, let’s have a look at these factors:


Living within your means should be the first thing to consider. Choose a place that is affordable in all dimensions, The amount of rent you pay, the amount of money you spend on transport, the price of basic utilities like electricity, water, groceries. Housing expenses should also help you to determine where you want to live. You want to ensure that you are able to at least save something for yourself.

Employment Opportunities

Your job may greatly determine where you live.  If you live far from your place of employment, certain aspects of your life will be affected. First, financially you will probably be spending more to get to work; this is in terms of either fuel or fare money. You will also be spending a lot of time on the road, This takes away from quality time you would be spending either with family or investing that time in yourself. Most of the time people look for a place to live that will offer them some sort of convenience, if you live close to work it’s unlikely for you to be late for work.

If you live in the city, there are more job opportunities as compared to rural areas. Sometimes you relocate to where the job is. if you live in Nairobi and you get a job in Mombasa you’ll have to relocate.


Safety is very important when deciding where to live.  If you have to kids you want to make sure that they are safe and secure when they playing outside, when they are going to school in the morning, when you’re coming from work. Security is actually a very important factor that determines whether someone may live in an area or not.

Basic Amenities

Health care facilities, schools, recreational areas, markets. These are just a few of the important things people keep an eye out when determining where to live. If the proximity of these amenities is far from where you want to live, you may experience some difficultly when you are in need of them. Imagine falling sick in the middle of the night and there is no hospital or clinic nearby? To make it worse the only means of transport is far from your residence. Therefore, it is important to pick a place to live that is strategically located and convenient.
