away because they have grown out of the old family house and want to live in a
new place, further from their parents, or they have to move because they got an
other job somewhere else, or just need a change around themselves.
However, it is
a very special thing, the situations are not always very good. You have to
think about the price, the environment, neighbors, the perfect building, enough
space for everybody you want to live with, enough space for your stuff, and
even the distance from your schools and workplaces.
Also, if you don’t
want to buy somebody else’s old house, you can build or rent one, but this
probably is the harder way to get a place to live where. From personal
experiences, I know it can cost a lot, take lot of time, you can have tons of
different problems with the blueprints, the builders and even with the people
you trust and give your money to do the things for you, the contractors.
Nowadays there are a lot of unreliable people you can lose your money and even
your new house by. But that’s just one opinion and some bad experiences.
First you find
out which is more comfortable and better for you, living in a city, or living
in a village. People from the city say that a village life is so much better,
as it is less bright and much more silent in the nights, people are not crammed
together in small flats, they can have a garden, where their children can play,
and they think its more beautiful. People from villages may think the opposite,
that living in the city would be better, because their workplaces and schools,
the hospitals and other important buildings are in the city and they have to
travel each day back and forth at least one time. And if they would like to go
and buy something, they also have to go in the city, because shops in the
villages are not so big, and they don’t sell everything that may be important
in ones household.
After you took
into consideration every little reason and decided where you would like to
build your house, you buy the thing for the construction, find some people who
plan the perfect house for you, and usually your constructors find the builders,
too. If everything goes well, the building’s finished in less than a year.
After that, you can buy the furniture and all the household appliances you
would like to use, or you will need later. You can now personalize your house
and use your own taste. Just be careful, if you have had borrowed money from a
bank for the house project, make sure that you will have enough money to pay
everything back in time, or the bank will take your brand new flat and sell in
on the price it wants just to get some money back.
If you would
like to rent a house, or a flat, there are also other things you should know
about. First, you have to look around and check some websites or estate
agencies for available places. They can help you figuring out the best price
and size for you, then they can give you some advice which one you should rent.
Agents can show you around the houses which makes the decision easier, whether
you like the place or not.
If you decide
to rent the flat, you talk with the owner and leave some deposit which may be
around 1 to 3 months. It is like an insurance, against any damage you may make
in the house or its furniture.
Of course, the
are other costs in any case, not depending on buying, building or renting your
place of living. You have to pay for the gas, electricity and water you use. If
you rent a house, the owner can decide if he or she wants to get the bills on
your name, or on their name, and after getting the bills, you pay for the
owner. Also, you write a contract, which is the evidence that you live there
and you use the place.
Also, if you
want a temporary place of living, you can still go to a hotel, or a student
hostel, which is much cheaper, but definitely not as comfortable and certain,
as a house.
problem is the homelessness and it’s causes. There are two main groups of
people. The one who became homeless because they wanted to, and the others who
lost their homes because of something else, like a natural disaster, such as
flood, fire, hurricane, or because they couldn’t pay their debt. They had to
sell their house, or even a bank took it from them, or maybe they got divorced
and one of them got the house and told their partner to go. So, the whole topic
is very complicated, there are a lot of advantages and disadvantages for both
buying and building a new home.
of the people don’t have so much money in their pockets or bank accounts so
there are significantly less new houses built. In these times, it’s not worth
selling, but worth buying one.
And to talk about the differences of moving in
different countries, well, there are loads of. Just for an example, if you are
living in America and your boss tells you that you will work in an other city
about 600 kilometers away, you just pack up your things, your family and move
on. But in Hungary it’s much different. People here are very comfortable and if
they are told to move, they just give up their work and search for an other one
which is closer, even if they would have to move only 50 kilometers away.
