If you’re thinking of moving to Beverly Hills because of the famous zip codes or the numerous TV shows which you’ve seen, let us tell you that reality is a bit different. Today, in this post, we will be talking about some of the good things which people often experience after a move to Beverly Hills, as well as some bad things. So, hopefully, after you’ve read this short text about the pros and cons of a move to Beverly Hills, you will be able to have realistic expectations and prepare yourself and your family for the relocation well. So, let us start with the first topic on our list today:
A definite pro of a move to Beverly Hills is the neighborhood
The grass is green, the trees are tall, the flowers are blooming, the beach is close and the mall is amazing. Oh yes. You are imagining the right thing. Living in Beverly Hills, whether you choose the hills or the ‘flats’, you will definitely be enjoying the magazine-like scenery. The houses range from modest to huge and the architecture is simply breathtaking. So, if you want to relax on your patio with a glass of cold juice on a hot summer day, a move to Beverly Hills is definitely for you. But, everything has the other side of the coin, as well.
A con of a relocation to Beverly Hills is the neighborhood
Well, not the neighborhood, per se, but the expense of a move to one such as this. Let us mention first that housing in Beverly Hills costs above average. In fact, in 2016, the most expensive house to be sold cost $38,270,000 and the least expensive housing the same year was about 5,000,000. And, we are not even talking about utilities here, this is simply the price of a home. So, we would consider this a definite con of a move to Beverly Hills. Now, let us talk about the actual life in this neighborhood after the relocation. The cost doesn’t stop here. The utilities get pretty expensive, but, not too much, depending on where you will be moving to in the city. But, most of the excess money actually goes on dining out, valet parking and parking in general. So, if you decide on a move to Beverly Hills, we’d suggest that you check out our post about the Science of Rainbow Parking, which will hopefully help you learn a few moneysaving tips and tricks.
The next pro which we would like to address regarding a move to Beverly Hills is definitely weather
Sunny California, right? And Beverly Hills is situated in the south of California and near the coast, so this city has a warm, moderate climate. There is plenty of sunshine to work on your tan after you move to Beverly Hills, and we would definitely consider this a pro. Not to mention that the weather is good all year round. Sure, there are a few mornings here and there which get a bit rainy, but other than that, it is paradise if you compare it to NY or DC. If you aren’t a beach person, you don’t have to visit the numerous sandy shores in the nearby Los Angeles after your relocation. Instead, there are plenty of rooftop restaurants which have a pool for you to use. Or, if you are more of a pool party person, there is also the option of moving to a new home with has one or the option of building one.
There is also another con of a move to Beverly Hills which we should talk about now, and it is that very weather itself
The thought of tanning on the beach on a nice, hot, summer day after a move to Beverly Hills is heavenly, isn’t it? Now, imagine going to work that very same day, being stuck in traffic for a few hours and then proceeding to sweat in your office, as you go over papers and papers? Yes, we think that the beautiful, sunny weather of California is a bit of a con sometimes, as well. Of course, if you have AC, it will be a bit more bearable after your relocation. There is another thing concerning the geographical position of this state which you might consider before you move there. California is a state where a number of natural disasters occur from time to time, including regular earthquakes, mudslides, forest fires and, from time to time, even tsunamis. While these may not occur often, they are still a con which you should consider before a relocation to Beverly Hills.
In the end, we’d like to talk a little about the pro of the schooling system which you should consider before a move to Beverly Hills
If you are moving to this city with you family, you will definitely be looking at different schools in the area to enroll your children in. We have written a number of posts on this topic, which you should definitely check out after your move to Beverly Hills for a more specific look into the system. But, let us tell you why the education system in this city is a definite pro.
All of the schools in Beverly Hills are under the supervision of the Beverly Hills Unified School District. There are numerous schools, ranging from pre-K until high school. Also, you can consider different options, from private to public schools, which have all been praised by their former students and teachers. But, the actual pro of a move to Beverly Hills in regards to the schooling system are the high test results of the children. Most of the schools in the area have been praised on numerous times and awarded multiple awards for their dedication to teaching the new generations in an effective and innovative way.
Well, we have hopefully given you some things to consider before you bump up Beverly Hills to the top of the list of your destinations for a new home.
