When buying a home, the neighborhood you select will not only play a pivotal role in your family’s life, but in the resale value of the property.
One person’s ideal neighborhood however may vary greatly from another’s. But, regardless, there are some needs and wants that generally do not change. The distance from your new home to schools, churches and shopping, for example, will not only affect how you and your family settle into your new home, it will also draw or turn off a perspective buyer.
A good first step is to enlist the services of a REALTOR who works in the area you are thinking of moving. REALTORS are very familiar with the communities in which they work and can answer many of the questions you will develop during your search.
