Look for the Neighborhood First

What if you found the perfect home online with the pool, workshop, mother-in-law suite, media room, outdoor kitchen, craft room, green features, open living or other feature that you’ve been looking for, then, when you went to preview it, you found it was in a neighborhood in decline, or too far from restaurants and shopping, or too congested, or facing a major thoroughfare which will make entry and exit difficult and dangerous? It happens, and particularly with home buyers moving from other areas. This is where a knowledgeable REALTOR® can be helpful in listening to your needs, then directing you to areas where you’ll feel comfortable. To aid our buyers, we have put together additional information on select neighborhoods which help in this crucial part of the home search, Featured Neighborhoods. Additionally, this HGTV article goes into some depth about what to look for in your next neighborhood.countryplace_001-1024x440
