Check the neighborhood

When buying a home it’s often good to check the neighborhood at times other than weekends and evenings.

  • Is it near a school? What are the traffic patterns before and after school?
  • Is it on a bus route? Heavy commuter traffic can come as a real shock.
  • is it near a park or athletic field? Participants and spectators can easily fill up parking spaces.
  • Is there construction or planned construction in the area? Noice could certainly be a factor.

Visit at times when these activities might be taking place. Talk to the neighbors. Don’t be surprised on your first day in your new home.
