How To “Try On” A Neighborhood Before Buying A Home There

How To “Try On” A Neighborhood Before Buying A Home There

With many purchases, you get the opportunity to “try before you buy.” You can go to the store and try on clothes before you update your wardrobe. You can go to the dealership and take a test drive before you commit to purchasing a car.

And while you can’t try a house on for size by living in it before you buy it, you can try the neighborhood out before buying a home in it.

recent article from realtor.com outlined different ways you can “try before you buy” or test drive a new neighborhood before committing to buying a home. Some of their top tips include booking a short-term rental or Airbnb (they recommend at least a three-day stay), doing a run-through of your commute, sampling the nightlife scene (including restaurants and happy hours), and checking real-time crime updates of the area to get a sense of the neighborhood’s safety.

Bottom line: buying a home is a huge commitment—so before you make such a big purchase, why not spend time in the neighborhood and get a feel for whether or not it’s a good fit for you?  Need some more information about a neighborhood?  Don’t hesitate to reach out!

WANT TO FIND THE HOME OF YOUR DREAMS?

How about doing even better than that and buying it at the best price possible?

Then you should download your free copy of my booklet “The Ultimate Home Buyer’s Guide”.

Get my professional insight into the current local market conditions.Don’t worry if you’re super busy; this isn’t the real estate version of “War And Peace.” It’ll be a quick, insightful (and hopefully kind of fun) read for you!

Within the next couple hours, you’ll literally know more about the buying process than most buyers out there (and even some real estate agents) if you go ahead and ask for your copy now.

So tell me where to send it, and you’ll be done reading it in no time. Although… you’ll probably find yourself going back and re-reading it throughout the process of buying your home! (Especially if you don’t end up working with me! But if you do, I know this stuff inside and out. Just sayin’…)

SEND ME THE GUIDE!
