When you begin the search for your new home you will want to decide what type of neighborhood you want to move into.
Your agent will ask lots of questions to help find your new home. Some things you will want to consider are-
- Does the neighborhood suit your lifestyle? Think about what activities you enjoy doing and what you want to have near your new home. Would you like to live next to a park or trail because you love to bike ride? Are nearby schools important for your young children? Do you like the idea of a walking neighborhood that is close to area stores and restaurants?
- What amenities are important to you? Do you want a community with trails, parks and a community pool? Do you want a clubhouse with a state of the art fitness center?
- What type of home do you prefer? Thing about how you are going to live in the home. Do you need a large single family home with lots of bedrooms, a big yard and a pool for you and your growing family? Do you prefer the idea of a townhome with limited yard but lots of great amenities? Or is a condo with no maintenance more your style?
- How long of a commute to work would you prefer? Do you have to live within 30 minutes of your job or is a longer commute doable? Perhaps you primarily work from home but need access to the airport for monthly business trips?
All of these questions will help you and your agent determine the best place to search for your new home.
Happy Home Hunting!
