Upon any long distance move, it’s always good to do some research about the state. Here are a few things to take into consideration before moving to Michigan.

Things to Know Before Moving to Michigan

The first thing most people think of when they think of Michigan is the mitten.  Also, Michigan is known for is that it is split up into two different parts: the upper peninsula (UP) and the lower peninsula (LP). The upper peninsula is famous for its natural beauty, sparse population and Lake Superior. The lower peninsula is famous for being surrounded by the Great Lakes, watersports and of course;  the motor city.

Another perk about moving to Michigan is for the sports. Both college-level and professional-level sports are pretty huge in the state of Michigan and the University of Michigan is known as one of the most highly regarded public universities in the country. Michigan is home of the Detroit Lions, Tigers, Pistons and Red Wings! No matter where you are; in the city or in the suburbs of Detroit, you have a team to root for.

Lastly, Michigan has incredible offers on homes. Since our state’s population has leveled off over the past few years, the prices of homes have become lower and affordable. This has presented better opportunities for people looking to move in and get settled in our great state.
