How to Choose the Right Neighborhood before Moving

When you're moving to a new city or town, choosing a neighborhood is almost as critical as choosing a house or apartment; it needs to be safe, affordable and provide you with everything that you need.

If you're planning on purchasing a home, keep in mind that you're not just buying a house; you're investing in a neighborhood. The two are synonymous so you need to be extra careful in choosing the area you'll be living in.

Before we get started, you need to ask yourself what the most important features of a neighborhood are; what makes a neighborhood special to you? Do you prefer:
· Quiet streets or a busier, active area?
· Walking to amenities?
· Trees and parks?
· Close proximity to shopping and restaurants?
· Older neighborhood or a newer development?
· Tight-knit community or anonymity?

Now that you have that perfect neighborhood pictured in your mind, let's look at 8 key factors you should consider.
