Narrow your home search by identifying neighborhoods that are right for you. This helps keep your search focused and efficient. Your REALTOR® can offer neighborhood information to guide you in your search.
When evaluating a neighborhood you should investigate local conditions. Depending on your own particular needs and tastes, some of the following factors may be more important considerations than others:
- quality of schools
- property values
- traffic patterns, timing
- crime rate
- future construction
- walkability, proximity to schools, employment, hospitals, shops, public transportation, prisons, freeways, airports, beaches, parks, stadiums and cultural centers such as museums and theaters
- do you get good cell phone reception?
