Signs of a Quality NeighborhoodAugust 8, 2014
Congratulations – you have decided to buy a home! Have you settled on the type;¬†maybe¬†mid-rise condo in Destin, or perhaps a single-family property in Niceville? Whatever you decide, keep in mind that when you buy a home, you are buying the neighborhood it is in as well.¬†
We have all experienced nosy, noisy and downright obnoxious neighbors, but the truth of the matter is that they offer valuable insight on a potential community.
To further determine if a neighborhood is the right fit for you, research ahead of time. Up and coming areas may have fewer foreclosure rates, but a community in transition may be more in line with your budget.¬†
Have you asked yourself what is nearby? It is important to consider how your daily lifestyle will be affected by the location of your home and neighborhood. This can include everything from practical amenities and school zones to the¬†potential work commute.¬†
Safety is another important factor to look for in a neighborhood. Generally, well-lit streets, walkways and security systems are signs of a safe neighborhood.¬†
Now that you know what to ask, contact a RE/MAX agent in Destin to help you find the right home in the right area.
