- Does it meet your lifestyle? Ask yourself what you like to do to have fun. If you are an outdoor lover, a neighborhood near hiking and biking trails will best serve you. Like to dine out? Check out the nearby restaurants. Prefer seeing a concert? Look at the lineup at local venues.
- What is it like? This might seem like too general of a question, but it pays to know what kind of noise and light activity your neighborhood gets. Drive through at different times of day to make sure you get a clear idea.
- What kind of guidelines does it have? If the neighborhood in which you are interested has a community or homeowners association, make sure you understand their regulations and fees. For example, if you have a boat it is important for you to know if you will be able to store it in your driveway.
- What are the taxes like? Taxes change from municipality to municipality. Make sure you know what your property tax and insurance obligations will be in your potential location.
