Choosing the right neighborhood can make the difference between loving where you live and looking forward to leaving. Our job, as realtors, is to help buyers find the right neighborhood based on what is important to them.
Choosing the right neighborhood requires a lot of research before you decide about that neighborhood you choose. There are several things to consider when buying a home. How many of these things are on your list?
Things to consider about a neighborhood when buying a home may include:
1. Safety-always consider safety first
2. Other homes-are there a lot of empty homes in the neighborhood? Not a good sign
3. Schools and Education-buyers with children want to live in areas with good schools. This helps keep
home prices stable.
5. Walking areas-are there walking trails, bike trails, parks?
6. Community Services-
7. HOA-is there a Home Owner's Association, what do you get with that?
8. Taxes-check the tax rate
9. Noise-is this a quiet neighborhood?
10. Highway Access-is it easy access to the highway?
It will certainly be difficult to find a neighborhood that offers everything on your list! You might like 3 or 4 features and dislike some others. The best way to make a final decision is probably by making a list of pros and cons for the homes and the neighborhoods you are thinking about and calculate the benefits and disadvantages.
