The American economy continues to improve, but the process remains slow. Therefore, families have to work harder to find and keep jobs, and relocation becomes a reality for increasing numbers of people each year. If at all possible, most people prefer to stay in their home state but may have a difficult time deciding where to go. In a state like Illinois where the population is near 13 million, this decision can be mind-boggling. We at The Real Estate Group would like to encourage you to consider relocation to Southern Illinois or Springfield.
Springfield Illinois Relocation
Springfield, fondly called the Land of Lincoln, is one of the state’s most active cities, both educationally and physically. Residents find no shortage of things to do here, from touring historical sites like the Lincoln Presidential Museum to hiking in bucolic areas like the Adams Wildlife Sanctuary. The city was originally named for Springfield, Massachusetts, but has since developed a culture all its own. Many of its residents have Irish, German, Polish, and Italian backgrounds, combining the traditions and experiences of northern and central Europe with the Mediterranean regions. African-American, Hispanic, and Asian populations grow daily as well, adding more traditions and flavors to the state’s melting pot.
Springfield’s children grow up educated and eager to learn. The city serves not only the “mainstream” K-12 population, but also unique populations such as preschool-age children in special education and non-traditional students, including adults. Even outside the schools, adults and children are regularly inundated with learning opportunities. The Looking for Lincoln Heritage Center, for example, partners with several rural communities to bring Lincoln and the Civil War era to life.
Southern Illinois Relocation
Southern Illinois provides myriad options for relocation, including Carterville, Arcola, and other smaller suburbs or villages. The region is rich in agriculture, education, and business opportunities. A great number of Southern Illinois natives make their living through agriculture, growing delicious fruits or raising cattle for dairy or beef. Southern Illinois is also home to several universities and community colleges, as well as faith-based schools such as St. Theresa’s School and several Lutheran schools.
Southern Illinois is unique because its location provides a gateway not only to other cities and regions, but other states. Southern Illinois residents include people from Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee, among other states. Sharing borders with Missouri, Kentucky, and Indiana, it’s easy to access the opportunities in several areas and work out of state without the pressure of a long commute. In addition, the easy access to these other areas provides a way for Illinois residents to support others’ commerce and have a hand in improving the economy in several places.
