Buying a home requires research, careful analysis, consideration, and thought. Determining the right location, the number of bedrooms or bathrooms needed, and outdoor space are the easier things. However, there are many other factors to think about in your home search. From your initial search to the moment you get the keys to your new home, I will be there, guiding you through the process. I can connect you with mortgage professionals to get you started in the process.
I will educate you on the different neighborhoods, schools, and other local community amenities that suit your lifestyle.
Not sure what is the right neighborhood for you and your family? Here are four factors that should help you decide:
Schools: Even if you don’t have kids, the quality of the schools in a given neighborhood should be high on your priority list. That’s because property values are higher in communities with strong school districts, meaning that your home will appreciate more. That said, you may have to settle for less house due to higher prices.
Property Values: Independent of school quality, you should look at local trends in home prices to get insight into that community’s future. Look for up-and-coming neighborhoods where home prices are climbing.
Traffic: Remember: if you’re buying a home, chances are you plan on living there for a long time. Heavy traffic may not seem like a big deal now, but in a few years you may feel differently.
Crime: When researching the safety of a neighborhood, don’t rely on looks alone. Information on local crime rates are available from your local police department and the FBI website, and real estate sites aggregate data from several sources to provide their own reporting
