Flushing Homes for Sale: Our Favorite Relocation Tips

Relocating is a big decision. Maybe you just landed a job in New York City and need to plan a cross-country move. Perhaps you want to escape the high costs of Manhattan by finding a new home in Queens.

If you are looking at Flushing homes for sale, you're probably in for some big changes. If you plan to relocate to Flushing, here are four great pieces of advice our clients have shared with us over the years.

  • You won't completely escape the crowds.
    Some people gravitate toward Queens for its residential streets with less congestion than stereotypical Manhattan. Although Flushing does feature some sleepy neighborhoods with lower traffic volumes, its commercial area is bustling. Flushing is home to the third-largest business district in New York City. If you are considering Flushing homes for sale, we recommend that you embrace the energy, quiet and everything in between!
  • A car is optional.
    If you are looking at Flushing homes for sale, you'll probably realize that a car might cramp your style. In fact, if you don't have a car, you'll probably save a few dollars. It typically costs extra to park your car in urban areas, and some people think it's a hassle to drive in the city. If you rarely drive your car, it might not make sense to continue to pay for the insurance and maintenance costs.
  • Public transportation is mandatory.
    OK, maybe it's not mandatory, but it's a part of living here. As the saying goes, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do!" Subway stops and bus schedules might seem overwhelming at first. Study up before you arrive. Before you know it, you'll be navigating the system like a pro!
  • Cultivate a love for Asian cuisine.
    Ethnic food is everywhere in Flushing. As an added bonus, it's cheap! If you don't already love Chinese food, try authentic dim-sum once. You'll be an instant fan!
