Finding the Right Neighborhood

You know what you’re looking for in a neighborhood so this is an easy way to narrow your search. Area realtors can be helpful in guiding you in the right direction.

Some things you might want to consider:

  • Property values
  • Schools
  • Future construction
  • Traffic
  • Crime rate
  • Proximity to work, shopping, schools, etc.

Strategies

If you have limited resources, you will want to purchase a home in the best neighborhood that meets your needs and is within your price range.

Also consider:

  • Looking for an up and coming area that might be THE place to live in the future
  • Checking to see what may be coming to the area, such as shopping developments, swimming pools, etc.
  • Looking for a home in a great neighborhood outside city limits
  • Purchasing a condo instead
