Homes-For-Sale

The most important characteristic when determining the value of real estate continues to prevail – location, location, location! When you decide where to live, you are not only choosing a home, you are buying into a neighborhood. A community’s physical and social qualities have a major impact on the market value of the house, the desirability of the neighborhood and the lifestyle of its residents.

A neighborhood can be every bit as important as the dwelling itself. The National Association of REALTORS conducted a survey of home buyers between July 2013-June 2014 and found that the top influential characteristics in selecting a home were:

  • Quality of the neighborhood
  • Convenience to job – Commuting costs are a key factor in neighborhood selection.
  • Overall affordability of homes – Your real estate agent can inform you of price appreciation tends in order to give you an idea of how solid your investment is or will be. Visit the local government planning agency to ask about future developments such as new roadways, commercial construction and housing developments that may affect values.
  • Convenient to friends/family – With limited time and money, people prefer to live near the places they frequent as well as have access to public transportation.
  • Convenient to shopping
  • Quality of school district – Local school that are recognized for their excellence help add value to surrounding neighborhoods and are an important selling point for homes on the market. Details such as test scores, class size, special programs and the percentage of students who go on to college can be provided upon request from the school district.
  • Design of neighborhood

How to Find the Right Neighborhood

Posted by: | Comments (0)

residential-neighborhood

When you are considering purchasing a home and on the brink of making such a major investment, it is crucial that you find the right neighborhood. Think about the features that matter most to you and your family. Take a walk through the neighborhood that surrounds the home you’re considering for purchase. Make sure you take into consideration the following things when deciding if this is the right neighborhood for you.

  • Are the other homes well maintained?
  • Is the environment peaceful?
  • Are there nearby amenities you are interested in, such as parks, libraries, restaurants and retail centers?
  • Ask the local residents what it’s like to live in their neighborhood.
  • Find out if there are any events that help residents connect.
  • Spend time in the community at various hours and days of the week to get an accurate gauge of noise and activity levels before making your decision.

When searching for the ideal neighborhood, a real estate agent, like myself, can be a valuable guide. By assessing your needs, I can help identify a community that you will enjoy being a part of now and in the years to come.
