Now that Tiger Woods is number one again, the buildup to The Masters will be a huge. Can Tiger make a run at the Golden Bear’s major championship record? Only time will tell, but the good news is that Augusta, Georgia will be in the spotlight for one beautiful weekend in spring. Let’s take a closer look at the second largest city in Georgia.
Situated right on the Savannah River, the Garden City’s motto is We Feel Good, and there’s a good reason for this. Featuring a very warm climate and ample jobs in medicine, biotechnology, education and the military, Augusta is a promising place to relocate. If you get inspired as you watch golf’s greatest tournament this Mother’s Day weekend, here are some things to consider as you attempt to relocate.
Do you need to find employment?
Unfortunately, you’ll probably need to find work when you get down to Augusta. If you’re able to transfer with your current employment or freelance, relocating might not be a big deal. However, if you’re going to look for a job, do so early. Look for professionals in the area whom you can network with. Or better yet, start a new job by becoming your own boss. Look into commercial vans in Augusta and a possible area to lease. The sky is really the limit.
What Are Some Things to Look for in a Residence?
The first thing you’ll need to decide is whether or not you’re going to rent or buy. Housing prices in Georgia are rather inexpensive, and mortgage rates are still on the low side. However, in order to make it worth it, you’re going to need to consider a few things. If you have children, what kind of school system do you want them in? Augusta and the surrounding area have eight high schools, 10 middle schools, 36 elementary schools and four magnet schools. Consulting a real estate agent who knows the area might be advantageous to give you an idea of the market and the best homes or apartments to look at for your needs.
What Can You Do There?
Luckily, there is no shortage of resources to figure out what there is to do in Augusta. The city of Augusta website offers area attraction ideas, and you can look at the local newspaper, which should have a lifestyle section and events calendar. Plus, you can always try networking with social media friends in your area to see if they have any ideas as they know the area.
