Evaluating Neighborhoods: 4 Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Home in NE Seattle

From finding the right agent to discovering the home you can truly feel comfortable in, there are a variety of things involved in the home buying process. However, it’s important not to get caught up in the home and ignore altogether the community you’ll be living in. If you’re planning a move to a new neighborhood, here are some things you should look into before putting in an offer.

You can certainly get a good sense of the well being of a community just by looking at it, but be sure that you’re informed about exactly how safe the in and surrounding the Maple Leaf-Roosevelt-Ravenna area is so your family will feel at ease in their new locale. While you can easily research the community and find information online, websites likeNeighborhood Scout and Crime Report also make it simple to discover the less well-known details.

Transportation And Accessibility to The Maple Leaf-Roosevelt-Ravenna area

A community you love is ideal, but if you work in the downtown core or an area far away, it will be important to determine the effect this will have on the length of your commute. In addition, you’ll want to be sure there are local transportation options like buses and shuttles that provide access all over the center in the event that it’s needed.

Learn About The Locals 

There’s something to be said for the perfect home, but you’ll also need to feel a certain sense of comfort in the place you live so ensure you choose a place with nice neighbors and a community feel. This may seem hard to determine before buying a house, but try visiting the local community center or knocking on a few doors for a quick impression of what the locals are like.

It can be easy to throw everything else out the window as soon as you’ve found the perfect home, but it’s important that your home is situated in a neighborhood you’ll feel comfortable in. If you’re currently considering a few different neighborhoods for your home purchase, you may want to contact one of our local real estate professionals for more information.
