Qualities to Look for in a New Neighborhood

Suburban NeighborhoodIf you’re planning a move, you probably already have a checklist for your new home—a big backyard, lots of windows, a playroom for the kids. But remember that your neighborhood is just as important as the house itself. Here are some great qualities to look for in a new neighborhood:

Walkability

Even if you drive to work, walkability is a great quality to have in your new neighborhood. You’ll get more exercise (morning runs and evening strolls), meet your neighbors and discover cool places like coffee shops and boutiques. Look for neighborhoods with plenty of sidewalks and crosswalks.

Good schools

If you have kids, this one’s a must-have. Even if you’re not a parent right now, you may want to do some research into the schools in your area in case you decide to start a family in the future.

Trees

Leafy neighborhoods aren’t just pretty—their residents tend to be healthier and happier, too. What’s more, an abundance of trees helps contribute to better air quality as well.

Amenities

Look for places you can hang out outside of your home and potentially make new friends, like parks, theaters, community centers, fitness studios, gyms and farmer’s markets. Bonus points if you can walk to them!
