When looking for your dream home you’ll want to ask yourself a few questions so you can find the perfect neighborhood. Here are a few things to ask yourself.

  1. How safe is the neighborhood?
    • Use your resources – check into crime statistics, is their a neighborhood watch group? how do the neighbors seem? feel free to talk with neighbors to see how they are.
  2. How is the area’s affordability?
  3. School District
  4. Amenities in the Neighborhood
    • If you have dogs, you’ll want to be sure there is somewhere safe you can walk with your pooch. Are there sidewalks, parks or walking trails nearby? At night, you may want to go for a short walk, street lights are a plus in a neighborhood.
  5. Restaurants and Stores
    • Grocery stores and pharmacies are very important to have nearby, food and medication are a necessity.
    • Everyone loves a good restaurant, if you like to use UberEats, DoorDash or Grubhub, you’ll want to make sure there are multiple options available.
  6. Commute Time
    • Do you mind driving a distance? Where you work in relation to your home is huge. If you do not drive, you may want to find something within walking distance of your home or transportation options. Check out WalkScore to see how your commute would be!
