THE HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Lisa WillettOne thing you can’t change about your next home is its location. That’s why before you choose a new home, it’s important to do your homework on the neighborhoods and communities of each home on your list. By following these 4 sure-fire tricks, you’ll be confident and comfortable in choosing the next place you call home:

1.) Walk the neighborhood—Sure, 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 drink—Head 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 schools—Schools don’t 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 realtor—You’re 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.

Are you ready to begin the hunt for your next home? Then contact me today to get started!
