How to Choose the Right Neighborhood in The Poconos
When you are buying your new Poconos home, you will not only
need to consider the house itself but the neighborhood that it is
located in. The old real estate cliche about location,
location, location is true, as the area of the city where your home is
located will have an impact on its future value as well as your
So, what factors should you consider when you are choosing which neighborhoods to house hunt within?
Proximity to Your Daily Needs
If you work downtown, living out in the suburbs
means that you will be adding time for a commute onto your day. While
this might be worth the cheaper prices for properties out of the town
center, it is something to consider when making your decision. You will
also need to consider whether the house is near shopping centers,
schools, doctors, dentists and other services that you will need
When choosing a neighborhood to buy in, do some
research into what developments are planned in the future for that part
of town. For example, you might be able to get a cheap price on a home
that is out of the way, but a new proposed highway leading straight into
the town center that will be built in the next five years could
increase property values considerably.
Take a walk around the neighborhood where you are
considering buying and get a sense of the overall atmosphere. Are there a
lot of families living there? Are there green places to relax? Do
people seem friendly and are they saying hello to you? You want to live
in a place where you feel welcome and comfortable.
Different neighborhoods will have a range of house prices and you will want to look for somewhere with the right balance of
value. Some areas of town will be very expensive but very nice; other
areas will have cheap house prices but might not be pleasant to live in.
Take the time to find the neighborhood that is in the middle, where you
will find the right house at a good price.
These are just a few of the factors to consider so
that you can choose the right neighborhood to buy in.
