What Neighborhood is Right for You?

When you finally decide to move, there is a flood of questions that come immediately after. Where, when, what?

The best way to start narrowing down your broad search for a home is to determine what kind of neighborhood you want to move to.

Choosing a neighborhood is crucial to making sure that not just the home is perfect for you but everything you are surrounded by is comfortable and enjoyable to you.

Here are a few things you must consider to start investigating the right neighborhood for you.

Create a Neighborhood Profile:

  • Do you have children or are you planning on having children? This will decide whether you should consider school systems, safety levels, and surrounding parks and amenities.
  • How far are you willing to commute? How are you planning on getting to work? Do you need access to major highways to drive or backroads to bike?
  • What is your current neighborhood lacking? Consider sound level, the community, if the surrounding area/nature is living up to your expectations and anything else that has been bothering you with your current area.

Select an Area:

Choose neighborhoods that best match your list of wants. A good place to start is with your commute to work!

Do the Research:

Based off your neighborhood profile, find out the information that is most important for you to know before you move. This could also include a general list of:

  • School information
  • Crime stats
  • Parks and recreation
  • Neighborhood associations
  • Tourist attractions
  • Share/Save/Bookmark
