What Makes a Great Neighbourhood

>> Jan 26, 2012

The neighbourhood, not just your house itself, can really affect whether your new place turns into a dream home or a nightmare. Therefore, it should be one of the most important factors you consider when choosing a new home. The local neighbourhood and surroundings will also affect the price of rentals and houses for sale in the area, so it is a financially practical aspect as well.

1.It’s an area where you feel at home.


You need to choose an area where you feel you can fit in: for example, if you are a student, or a young business professional, then it would be ideal to find an area where you can be surrounded by like-minded individuals.


This is because not only will you likely find the houses and apartments for rent are marketed towards your demographic, but also because it will increase your chances of making friends and networking in your local area.


If being close to your family and friends is very important to you, then you will wish to find a house either in a nearby neighbourhood, or somewhere that is easily accessible.


Particularly if this is where you plan to settle for the foreseeable future, do not underestimate this “friends and family” factor when it comes to conducting your search: it will be integral to you feeling happy in your home.


2.Local facilities.


Local facilities such as a medical centre and a nearby supermarket should be non-negotiable. You do not want to be in a situation where the nearest Emergency Department is a 30-minute drive away, particularly if you have young children.


The local bars and shops will also reflect and give you a better idea of the neighbourhood culture. When looking for a place to buy, property valuation software will help you work out the financial potential. This means you don’t need to worry that you are getting distracted by a cute cafĂ© around the corner, and find yourself wondering whether or not this is a rational factor to base your renting or buying choice on.

3.Community spirit


It can be so easy to forget, when looking for somewhere new to live, to check out what the neighbourhood is like at both morning and night.


Of course you need to make sure that there are enough bedrooms and bathrooms to suit your requirements, and that you can picture yourself living in the home itself: but you also need to consider the local community.

For example, if you are a young mother: is there a good support group in the area that you can join? Can you count on the neighbourhood to be quiet at night? Is the crime rate low?

4.Financial growth.


Research the latest housing trends for the area. How much have the houses in the street nearby been selling for? How does your prospective house compare to these properties?


If prices are on the up, look into why that is: is there a new motorway in the works that means the suburb will suddenly be a lot more accessible? Keep in mind that this could mean while house sales in the area may be increasing now, they could plateau after.


Real estate development software is designed to help you predict such trends, and your real estate agent will be able to give you advice if you struggle to understand all of this on your own.
