76_3386471Whether you are moving to a new city or just moving across town, there are many things to consider when deciding on the ideal neighborhood. I know how important this decision can be; and I will take the time to talk with you about resale value, the local area, and what loan programs will be the most beneficial to you.

Here are four easy steps for finding the best neighborhood for your needs:

Step 1: Decide what is important to you, and ask yourself questions about your future plans and lifestyle:

  • Do you have children who will need rooms or a yard in which to play?

  • What type of home are you looking for?

  • How long do you plan to live in this home?

  • How far are you willing to commute for work?

  • Do you want to be in a historic neighborhood or a neighborhood with new construction?

Step 2: Gather information on potential locations and compare statistics.
Once you have decided what you want out of a neighborhood and a home, search for a few potential areas that match your criteria. Compare information between the neighborhoods, such as schools, crime statistics, parks, homeowners’ associations and nearby conveniences.266_2687392

Step 3: Visit the neighborhoods.
Once you have done all of your research, take a drive through the areas at different times of the day. Note if there are families or people walking around, the noise level, and the condition of other homes and yards in the neighborhood.

Step 4: Seal the deal.
Compare all aspects of the neighborhoods you have researched and observed, and decide which one you think is the best fit. Meet with a Realtor to schedule some viewings of housings in that area.
