Community amenities to evaluate when choosing a place to live

by The Blake Mashburn Group

A home purchase is a big decision that affects everyone.  Before you begin to look, figure out what amenities are most important to you and your family in the neighborhood of your choice?

  1. Schools- Whether or not you have children the schools in your neighborhood are of great importance.  Great schools add value to your home as well as a solid educational foundation for your children
  2. Conveniences- Are there a number of grocery store options close by?  Is your bank close? How about playgrounds for the kids?  Where are your doctors located? All these things play into the likeability of the location of your home.
  3. Dining and entertainment- While this may not be on the top of your list, your hobbies, dining preferences and entertainment options and the distance from your home will be important.
  4. What amenities does the home itself offer?  Big backyard, outdoor pool, extended patio or deck for outdoor living space?
  5. If it is a relatively new neighborhood, what was it built upon?  Some areas have been built over wetland and filled.  This could cause unsettling in your home resulting in cracked foundations and walls.

Before you begin your home search, partner with a real estate agent that is an expert in the area and has lived or worked there for a good number of years.  Their experience and knowledge could be a lifesaver for you and can save hours of viewings in areas that don’t meet your needs.
