4 Sure-fire tricks for house hunting
Brought to you by Lisa Willett - The Hasson Company Realtors - REALTY INSIDER -
One thing you cant change about your next home is its location. Thats why before you choose a new home, its important to do your homework on the neighborhoods and communities of each home on your list. By following these 4 sure-fire tricks, youll be confident and comfortable in choosing the next place you call home:
1.) Walk the neighborhoodSure, you can read up on a neighborhood online, but actually walking its streets, seeing its homes, and examining the community in person is infinitely more valuable in helping you get a feel for a neighborhood.
2.) Grab a drinkHead to a restaurant with a bar in the neighborhood and grab a pint. Bars foster conversation, and talking to the locals can give you a clearer picture of the community.
3.) Research the schoolsSchools dont just matter to buyers with children; schools denote local economic strength, community pride, and affect the resale value of neighborhood homes.
4.) Talk to a realtorYoure not buying and selling homes on a regular basis, but a real estate agent is! Realtors like me understand how homes are valued in specific micro-markets, and we can provide additional information about local school districts, transportation, community amenities, and more.
