When you are ready to buy a home, the very first thing to consider is where you want to live. Geography is critical! After all, the perfect house is not so perfect if it is too far from where you want to live. There are several things you may want to consider when selecting a neighborhood:
- What is an acceptable distance from your place of employment? If this isn't an issue, then anywhere within the city should work. However, if you don't want to drive more than 30 minutes to and from work each day, this needs to be taken into consideration.
- Do you need a home close to a great school system? School districts vary from city to city so this is something that needs to be known by your agent so that they will only show you properties in school districts in which you are interested.
- Do you want to live near specific parks or attractions? Or do you need or want to live close to a hospital or clinic? These are things you should determine prior to looking at properties.
