Deciding where to buy a home is often one of the hardest decisions new homebuyers will have to make. For most, the neighborhood can be just as, if not more important than, the home itself. So how do you choose the right neighborhood?
The best way is to start with a list of what you are looking for in a neighborhood. In order to do this, you need to ask the right questions. Here are four questions to help you through the home buying process.
1. What kind of neighborhood environment do you seek? Are the suburbs for you?
Most people have an idea of their dream neighborhood. If you have ever imagined living in a neighborhood with tree-lined streets and homes with larger backyards for your children to run around in, then the suburbs might be for you! These days, the suburbs are not quite what they use to be; there are a lot of new master planned communities that have a variety of housing and neighborhoods that will allow you to find your own personal fit!
2. Are urban-infill neighborhoods a good fit for you?
So maybe the suburbs aren’t quite your thing just yet. If not, up and coming neighborhoods might be the perfect place for you. Many of these neighborhoods are located right outside of nearby cities. While not your typical suburban neighborhood, these urban-infill neighborhoods will still provide your family a feeling of community.
3. Do you want a neighborhood that offers something for everyone?
Many master planned communities offer plenty of amenities for the whole family to enjoy. Don’t only research neighborhoods through a computer, get out to that neighborhood and see all that it has to offer. If you have an active family looking for a community with lots of trails for hiking and biking, or if you are looking to really be involved in a community, see what types of clubs are offered.
4. Do you have kids? Are school districts important to you?
To most families with kids, a school district with an excellent academic program is high on their list of demands when moving to a new neighborhood. It is not only important to do your research on the district itself but also to visit the school your child would be attending if you were to move to that neighborhood. Schedule a visit to see the school during the day. This way, you can really get a feel of the atmosphere.
