Farm your niche market and cover all the happenings in your neighborhood
Sometimes it can happen that you find the perfect house in a Bothell neighborhood that just doesn't fit your lifestyle. The other thing that can occur is you find the right neighborhood but simply can't find a house you like in it. What do you do if you do find the right house but you don't like the neighborhood?
The right house
You're probably going to be living in this house for many years to come so you want it to be everything you'd expect. You may have walked into the home and fallen head over heels in love with it, only to find out that the Bothell neighborhood is less than desirable. This can be a dilemma, for sure.
The right neighborhood
You may have an idea of exactly what you're looking for in a neighborhood and have found one that suits all your needs. Perhaps it has the right shopping amenities, a church you frequent, is close to your work, would be a safe haven for your children, etc. If you can't find the right house, do you compromise and pick a house that isn't just right?
Whenever you have one of these problems the first thing you should do is get loaded with information. Find out everything you can about the neighborhood so that you can make a more informed decision. You should check the crime rates and find out exactly what makes this Bothell neighborhood less desirable than others.
Once you have done this you will need to make notes on paper so that you can see the exact situation as it is. In many cases, simply by writing down the facts you'll be able to make a decision. There are both good points and bad points to settling for a house or settling for a neighborhood and you are going to have to decide what the most important factors are to you.
If you have children and are looking at the neighborhood with a perfect house but with a high crime rate, you should look at not only the effect it will have on your children now, but also the effects in the future. Are the crime rates going up or down? Is there a program in place to reduce crime that is seeing steady results?
These are the types of things you should be looking at when you are caught in such a dilemma. Of course, this only applies if you need to get a house right away and can't wait to find the perfect house in the perfect Bothell neighborhood. Your real estate agent will also have a solid viewpoint based on what is other clients have faced and how they were able to deal with it.
