Sample Answer

Actually, I just moved to a new apartment not long ago. This summer holiday, I found a part- time job that I can do for a long time. But I had to move out of the student residence because the building was closed during summer holidays.

So I tried really hard to look for a suitable apartment. Eventually I decided to rent a newly renovated apartment, which has a really good location because it’s next to a beautiful lake in our city. The drawback is its distance from my workplace. I have to take a bus for 40 minutes to commute there. But to enjoy a better lifestyle, I signed the lease for the apartment.

Anyway, after deciding the ragout date, I asked three good friends to give me a hand packing up my stuff. I even called a moving company for a van. We spent a whole day moving everything into my new apartment. We were all worn-out after the fact. I treated all my friends to a nice meal at a restaurant nearby.

And then I got to decorate the home in the way I wanted and I also began to It’s really new and different for me. Although I have to get up really early every morning for work, I have fun biking along the lakeshore every night, which helps me blow off some steam So basically, I’m really satisfied with my new life.

1. Why do people move to a new home?

People move to a new home for many different reasons. The most common reason is that they need more space because they have a new addition to the family’s, whether it be a pet or a child. It can be hard to have multiple kids and pets in a small house. People may also move to a new home if they have to move to a new city for work. Some people who live in a city might choose to move to the country because they want more outdoor space.

2. What problems will people face after moving to a new place?

People can face many problems after moving to a new place; they might need to do repairs, or they might realize that there is a problem with the new neighbours. It is important for people to do a lot of research and complete a house inspection before moving to avoid as many problems as possible. People might also realize that things might be more expensive in a new city, especially rent and utilities. People might have to readjust their budget or spend their money differently.

3. How do people solve these problems?

If people are struggling to adjust to the new neighborhood, it’s helpful to befriend the people who live close by. In general, it’s always beneficial to be on good terms with your neighbors. If you’re new to the area, your neighbors are often the people who can give you good advice when it comes to finding the best restaurants and essential places like hospitals and grocery stores. Dealing with new expenses can be handled by rearranging your budget or saving up beforehand.

4. Is it good to move to a new place frequently? Why?

I don’t think that it is a good idea to move to a new place often because it is very stressful, time consuming, and expensive. Moving requires a lot of research and preparation, so it can be very time consuming especially if you are also working full time. Moving is also very expensive; if you are renting, you need to pay at least two months of rent up front, and if you are buying you need to provide a down payment. It is better to move less often.

5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of living in the same place?

To begin with the advantages, the first and foremost is the awareness we have of the area. While living at the same place, we acquire a boat load of information about the climate, cuisine and nature of people. This information helps us to lead our life comfortably. Apart from this, we have a wider social circle. On the other hand, the prime disadvantage is boredom and monotony. There is no denying this conviction that when we shift to a new place, we gain new experiences in terms of culture, people, climate and cuisine etc. So we miss dynamism in our lives by staying at the same place.
