The Neighborhood

Scout out the Neighborhood!

It is important that you scout the neighborhood in person. You live in more than your house.

  • Talk to people who live there.
  • Drive through the entire area at different times of the day, during the week and on weekends.
  • Look carefully at how well other homes in the area are being maintained; are they painted, are the yards well cared for; are parked cars in good condition, etc.
Neighborhood Factors to Consider:
  • Look for things like access to major thoroughfares, highways, and shopping.
  • Listen for noise created by commerce, roads, railways, public areas, schools, etc.
  • Smell the air for adjacent commerce or agriculture.
  • Check with local civic, police, fire, and school officials to find information about the area.
  • Research things like soil and water.
  • Look at traffic patterns around the area during different times of the day and drive to & from the area to work.
  • Is the neighborhood near parks, churches, recreation centers, shopping, theaters, restaurants, public transportation, schools, etc.?
  • Does the neighborhood belong to a Homeowner’s Association?
