Tips For Choosing a Neighborhood When Searching For A New Home

Posted By on May 27, 2011

When Buying a New Home you are not only choosing the house, but also the Neighborhood. To some people being in close proximity to mass transit is important. To others the most important factor in buying their new home is the school district. Mary Umberger at Inman News says, “Sometimes, though, one resident’s “neighborhood glories” are another resident’s “neighborhood warts.” This is something to seriously consider when buying your new home. Especially when moving from out of town, it is important to write a list of what your top 5 “must have’s” in a community are. Then stick to them and find the community that best suits your needs.

Inman news’ article 5 tips for choosing a neighborhood, gives you some idea’s on what to consider when moving to a new neighborhood:

1.     The time of day when you first lay eyes on a prospective house can affect your impression of the neighborhood, so visit at various hours.

  For Instance, if you visit a neighborhood at 1:30 in the afternoon it may look like the perfect community, however when you   return at rush hour, it’s bumper to bumper.

2.     Ask questions of people who already live there.

The residence in that community usually have no problem telling you about the schools, safety and noice, so ask. The people who live there are the best tool to get community information.
