If you’re planning on buying a house anytime soon, be sure to check out more than just the home! Here are three tips to help:
1. Do a drive by. Drive by the home at several different times of day, and don’t forget to drive by a few times at night too. Be sure to drive by during the week and on weekends. Check it out and get a feel for the area at many different times to be sure that it “fits” you.
2. Check out your neighbors. Look at the properties of your immediate neighbors, but also of others in the area. Check out any shops & businesses nearby too. Pay attention to the details and remember that neighborhood affects property value.
3. Look at ratings. Go online to check neighborhood ratings, school ratings, and crime ratings for the neighborhoods you are considering. Remember, knowledge is power!
