Would you like to know more about the people who live in an area you’re considering moving to?
Whether it’s shared values, income levels, family structure, or age, we are creatures of uniformity and preferences. A lot of these demographic factors enter in at some level when searching for a place to live.
If you are in the “raising kids” phase, you probably would like to be in an area where there are kids. If you are in your 20’s … you might not want to live in an area where the average age is 55-60. I think you get my point. Not judging … just sayin.
