Questions you should consider before buying a home.


Questionsyou should consider before buying a home are many. Here are 5 we will talk about.questions you should consider before buying a home  

Let’s focus on area related matters that need a good deal of thinking about.


1.   How close is the public transportation?

If you go to work every day and you drive, that’s great.  What happens if the car breaks down? How are the roads in the winter?  Are there Trains, buses, how much is the car service? How long is the commute when you use public transportation? How many connections will you have to make?

2.   What kind of community services are there, and where are they located.

 That’s a great question you should consider before buying a home. It’s good to know where the police, fire and hospitals are located. In case of an emergency you will want to know who to call and have an idea of how long it would take for help.

3.     School Districts.

Are there school age children in the household?  You will want to know the grade level of the schools in the surrounding area.   Questions you should consider before buying a home might be what are the schools rating. A great place to see homes is BronxValueHomes and you can see ratings for many schools.

4.   What type of recreational activates and areas are there.

Do you like to jog, swim, or bird watch?  Whatever it is you like to do when you’re off from work can it be done near your new home. Would you have to drive 45 min one way to find that relaxing place you call Starbucks? This is a question you should consider before buying a home.

5.   Where are the shopping centers?

When it’s time to go food shopping, where do you go and how are the prices?  For home repairs and upgrades, where are the Big Box stores like HomeDepot.  It’s fair to patronize the mom and pop stores but you need to know where the Big boys and girls are also.


I hope you enjoyed my short Blog on Questions you should consider before buying a home.
