Do You Know How to Choose the Street Where You Live?

Driving By A For Sale Sign When you’re looking for your first home to buy, remember: Where your home sits is as important as what the home is like.

Here are some of the questions we always ask when we’re checking out a new listing. Naturally, we pass what we know about properties on to people shopping for homes, but you, too, can have these considerations in mind:
  • What is the traffic like on the road where you’d like to live? What are future plans for road development, if any?
  • What are the plans for surrounding property? (Answers are sometimes common knowledge, but often they must be looked up in the town hall offices where maps, charts and proposals are available.)
  • Where is the nearest public transportation?
  • How far is the home from schools, shopping, recreation, religious and cultural centers (depending on individual preferences)?
  • How far is the home from a particular place of work and what kind of commute is available?
  • What do local taxes (state, county and town) amount to and how are they calculated?
One of the best ways to "get the feel" of various neighborhoods is to drive through them, noting the kinds of homes, yards and people. Knowing the territory as well as we do, it’s a pleasure for us to guide prospective homebuyers on comparative neighborhood shopping trips.
