Finding your Ideal Neighborhood
Every other year, the Census Bureau conducts the American Housing Survey. The most recent study finds that the two most popular reasons for choosing a certain neighborhood are how it’s laid out and its proximity to work.
What about you? What are your hot buttons? It helps both of us if you’re clear on what type of area best suits your lifestyle. This part of the process requires both soul-searching and sleuthing.
Here are a few considerations to help you create your neighborhood wish list:
That last question is especially good when you’re stuck for ideas. Sometimes knowing what you don’t want in a neighborhood is just as important as knowing what you do want.
When you share your wish lists with me, I can help you narrow down the vast array of home and neighborhood choices available. Here’s how we’ll find your perfect home and neighborhood:
One Final Step
Take a drive through neighborhood at different times during the day and night. The ideal times for these recognizance trips are after school lets out in the afternoon and on weekend days and nights. Don’t hesitate to get out and walk and speak with any neighbors you see.
Searching for the perfect neighborhood is akin to Google Earth. If you’ve ever used the online search application you know that you can draw back from an area by zooming out and then gradually zoom in, until you find the ideal neighborhood. That’s when we jump in the car and go find you that dream house.
