Your next move
One of the most important aspects of purchasing a home is the neighborhood. After all, you’re not just selecting a new home, you’re deciding on the community where you will build a life!
Consider these factors in choosing a neighborhood
- Nearby Amenities – Are you looking for a home near a good church, top schools or convenient stores? Learn what amenities you’ll be near and consider how it will affect commute times, running errands or just going out for fun.
- Observe the Neighbors – Are there many children in the neighborhood? Are the streets lined with cars? How well are the neighbors’ yards maintained? Details like these can reveal a lot about the neighborhood’s personality.
- Consider Your Safety – Feeling safe in your neighborhood goes beyond installing a security system. Do neighbors walk their dogs or go for morning jogs? Are the streets noisy when you drive down them at night? What are the crime statistics?
