When you're hunting for a new home, you should consider more than the walls around you and the roof over your head. The community environment you acquire when you relocate could make or break your experience. There are several things to consider before you set your sights, and heart, on a specific home.

What is the neighborhood like? Visit the area you're considering during different times of the day and night. Check it out on a busy weekend and during rush hour. What may seem like a quiet neighborhood on a Monday afternoon may be much different on a Friday night.

If the turnover of homes in your prospective neighborhood is high, it may signal a problem. Dig deeper to find out why people are moving out by talking to the neighbors. Ask specific questions about safety, quality of nearby public spaces, and reputation of the school system.

To learn more about the surrounding community, check the city's website to find out what the current citizens are bringing forward as concerns and to see what your future officials are prioritizing

How your home looks and feels on the inside is up to you, but controlling the community around you is largely out of your hands. Make sure you're moving into a community where you will be happy and feel safe. If you're new to the area and would like some neighborhood information in places like El Dorado Hills, Sacramento, Cameron Park, Granite Bay, or Folsom, give me a call.
