One of the most important aspects of purchasing a home is the neighborhood. After all, you are not just buying a home, you are deciding on a community where you will build a life!
When choosing a neighborhood, consider these factors:
1) Observe the Neighbors- Are the neighbor’s yards maintained? Are there many children in the neighborhood? Are the streets lined with cars? Details like these can reveal a lot about the neighborhood’s personality.
2) Do you feel safe- Feeling safe in your neighborhood goes beyond installing a security system. What are the crime statistics? Are there kids playing outside? Do neighbors walk their dogs or go for evening/morning runs? Are the streets noisy and active when you drive down them at night?
3) Nearby Amenities- Are you looking for a home near top schools, shopping malls, convenient stores or good restaurants? Learn what amenities you’ll be near and consider how it will affect commute times, running errands or going out for fun.
