When choosing a fixer upper home, the most important decision to make is where it’s located. Especially if you’re new to the area, choosing the best neighborhood for your family’s forever home is a significant step in this process. We do the searching for you, but ultimately, it’s up to you where your family lays down their roots.
We have some tips for choosing the perfect neighborhood for your family’s needs. First, we can never predict the future but picture your family in five or ten years. This can help determine your needs as a family, such as proximity to schools or zoning for the school district you prefer. It’s also a good idea to do some investigating into city plans to see if they plan on developing the area or expanding it so that there are no surprises in a few years.
Your commute to work is another factor to consider when choosing a neighborhood for your family to live in. You might not always work in the the same office, but it’s a good idea to plan your proximity to work. At the very least, determine whether the town or city you’re looking into has potential for job prospects in the future. This will save you from moving away to seek out job opportunities and having to move again.
Looking into whether neighborhoods have HOA’s and what they entail is another good step in determining your future neighborhood. The housing rules might not work for you, so it’s best to look into it before making this big decision.
