You’ve selected the city you’re moving to, but which neighborhood is right for you?
Here are a few things to look for when shopping for the right area for you and your
1. Municipal services - Be sure to check if there are local police and fire stations
relatively close to your new home. Taxes - Property and school taxes need to be
taken into consideration when selecting a neighborhood.
2. Public transportation - In these days of rising gas prices, it’s important to note if
public transportation, such as buses, trains and/or subways, are close to your
neighborhood. The cost of commuting may offset your potential fuel costs.
3. Schools - Checking out the proximity of neighborhood schools to your home is
important, especially if you are sharing carpools or need to seek out after school
care for your child.
4. Shopping - Are there enough grocery stores, dry cleaners, convenience stores
and service stations in the area?
5. Remember, when you are new to an area, you don’t know your way aroundso the less you have to travel, the better off you’ll be.
