Whether you’re buying or selling a home this year, here are some questions to ask yourself when deciding on a neighborhood:
What do you like or dislike about your current neighborhood?
Determine what you want in your next neighborhood by examining your current one. Knowing what traits you like and don’t like will help you choose a new location.
Do you want to be able to walk within your community?
Walkable neighborhoods are becoming increasingly popular, so if it’s important to you, make sure your new community is walking distance from your must-have amenities, like restaurants, shopping or a gym.
Do you prefer a close-knit community or want some anonymity?
Some people prefer the camaraderie of a tight-knit community where everyone knows their neighbors, while others prefer peace and privacy. Get a feel for whether the neighborhood’s vibe fits your personality by spending some time walking through
What kind of commute do you want?
Perhaps you don’t mind a longer commute and view it as personal time to reflect and listen to music, audiobooks or podcasts. Or maybe you need your commute to be as short as possible. Either way, you should factor it in to your neighborhood selection.
