We always tell our buyers who aren’t familiar with the neighborhood they are considering buying a home in to spend some time getting to know the area. We encourage them to walk through the neighborhood and talk to some of the residents and local business owners —you are likely to get an honest review of the neighborhood, both the good and the bad. Spend some time in the neighborhood at all different hours and days. Go to the cafes, bars and restaurants where the locals hang out and ask them what they like / don’t like about the neighborhood. All of this will give you important information you won’t get from the neighborhood’s appearance.
“Location, location, location” is the often repeated mantra in the real estate world and with a little research you can ensure that you are settling into the location that’s just right for you.
