Should I move one more time?

I have just moved accommodation for one week. All everything have arranged neatly. Now, my younger sister said that there is a house which we can rent it. The price is cheaper than my present room. It's quite private. However, It's far from my company. I would like to rent a room which I can live in a long time. So, I need a cheap and stable room. Should I move accommodation one more time?

You mentioned your sister found a house and you're renting just a room now. If you ask me, you should go transfer to the house since it is bigger and is spacious and not to mention the rent is also cheaper. It's better if you transfer again so you could save more.

Moving accommodation one more time isn't a bad choice in your situation.The problem is that how far it is from your company and how long it takes you to get to your company. I think a nice living environment is the most important.If the distance between the house your sister recommend and your company isn't that far(for instance,you can get to your company within one hour),moving to a more comfortable house is definitely a good choice.What's more,you've said the price is cheaper than the present one in which you're living.So I think the choice of moving one more time is worth considering. However,if it takes too long for you to get to your company and you will spend a lot more money on traffic,I recommend you to stay in the present one and enjoy your life here.I just prefer a better living environment if the distance is acceptable.LOL... Hope this will help you,friend!

Living environment is better here. It's wide and clean. traffic is good. However we must pay much more for many kinds of fees. This issue make me thinking much.

A good environment is very precious.The fees you paid is really an issue that you should consider carefully.Anyway,I still think I won't choose to move if I can pay it.However,it's my own idea.Hope you can think carefully and have a talk with family and friends.Best wishes to you,friend!

I would want to be near to my work office. If you are going to spend more money going to and from work I would say don't do it. I think if it will save you money and you can get to work then do it.

After reading your sharing, I don't want to move anyway :D I'm living near my office and I don't have a plan to look for a new job. I like to live near my office the same you.

I think that you need to take a bit of time to consider the positives and negatives about where you would be moving to. If you don't feel as though you would want to live that far away from the place that you work then you probably shouldn't move there, as the commute would mean that you started to resent your job and you could even end up leaving it, when this wouldn't really be something that you had wanted to do. However it it seems best for you, and you would be able to settle down and live there in the long term, then it is certainly something that you should consider.

Hello tkonlinevn, if you are moving to a house with cheaper rent but far from your company, you will also be spending for gas of transportation fare. So I suggest that you try to write everything down, the pros and the cons, and some computation as to what could save you more. Good luck and take care.

What happen if I live in room 5-10 years? A cheap room is better, right? We can save much more money with it.

You should compute your expenses, the travel expenses and the house rent. Compare your expenses at your place now as compared to the place your sister is recommending to you.

We must calculate carefully, right? I'll discuss to my husband about this. Thank you for your response.

Would you be saving enough money on rent to afford it being further away from work. This may be a key into the decision. Also, cost of breaking most recent contract? any deposits? Just suggesting you wage all aspects.

We don't have any contract. We can save enough money to move. However, we maybe must recalculate the fees when we move to the new room.

In your situation I would try to write a list about the positive and the negative things about staying in the current room and the positive and negative things about moving. You mentioned that the new place would be cheaper than the room where you live now and that would be a positive thing, but the location is far from your company, so that would be a negative thing. Try to find the other differences between the two places and write them down on your positive and negative list. That will make it easier to compare the two places and make a decision. If you choose to move to the place that it far from your company you would have to spend time on commuting and unless you go by bike you also need to spend money on transportation. Ask yourself if you are willing to commute every day and compare the price of the new rent plus the money you need to spend on transportation with the money that you spend on rent in your current room.

A good idea, my friend. I'll do that. I would like to rent a room which I can live in it for a long time. So, It's difficult to choose.

Hello tkonlivevn, I don't know really know, that depends on the time, and resources that she is actually hard to do. it's cool to rent a room since you will have to pay less of it than buying house and paying for the mortgage. with the economy now a days, you need something that can help you save money. think about it, but if you think it's going to be stable that way then that's good for you

oh, it is cheaper but far from your company...so that you have to pay more money for gas, instance... Better you should write down everything...and if you live in house that your sister said is really cheaper and more stable than living in current house, then you can move again. Make sure you have to calculate fee for moving again... Honestly, i really don't like to move much, i have to do many things to pack, arrange... in a new room, rent a car to bring furniture, etc...it is very tiring...
