Choosing the Right Community to Move to Explained by Brokers for Charity


September 20, 2017

When planning to move, one of main considerations prospective homeowners make is moving to the ideal location. While finding the home of your dreams is important, its proximity to places that you often frequent, is a huge priority you should make sure is a factor. Compromises are often necessary, but given that you will live in a home for at least five to 10 years, it is best to love the location you move to. From a commute, schools, and safety tips, to distances to places such as the grocery store, and more, learn how to pick a location from brokers for charity.

Commute

As you make your list of “must haves” for your next home, set a guideline on how far you are willing to commute to work. For some, moving closer to work is a priority. For others? They don’t mind the commute. As you make a decision on distance, take into consideration how many miles your new commute will be and how that will affect your gas budget each month, as well as wear and tear on your car. Also, when commuting, Denver offers a variety of ways. Learn more about the top ways to commute for those planning to buy a home in Denver.

Schools

If you have or plan to have children, make sure you are happy with the schools in the area. Make a list of what is important to you in a school, and do your research on all schools in the area. Or, if schools are higher on the priority list, broaden your search to find the district that best suits your child.

Safety

As a person moves, they want to know they live in a safe area. You want to be comfortable going in and out of your home any time of the day. Some of the safest neighborhoods include the Holly Hills area, Congress Park, Indian Creek, or Wellshire. Finding the best location is something you can discuss with your local realtor to help you find a home that you feel safe in.

Distance to Important Places

After factoring in schools, work commute and safety, you may forget to consider one important detail: Proximity to places you travel to! As you scope out neighborhoods, check to see if they have the amenities you frequently use. This can include grocery stores, convenience stores, gas stations, gyms, playgrounds, distance to friends and family, and other places with the activities that you need often. If you are happy with the options and have to drive somewhere, this will help solidify the decision you made to move into your new home.

Other Considerations

As you near your decision to a neighborhood, spend some time in it to see how you like it. Visit it at various times to see how much traffic there is, how safe you feel, and to confirm it checks off all of the boxes you had on your “must have” list, and if you feel comfortable with any compromises you have to make.
