How to Find the Perfect Neighborhood for You in Dallas
The search for the right neighborhood is no easy one, but it doesn’t have to be as daunting as it sounds. There’s a lot to consider when starting your search, with factors ranging from schools to commute to lifestyle and more. Whether you’re in the search for a Dallas home for sale, or whether you’re going the route of the new construction home, you’re going to need to consider the fact that the neighborhood your future home resides in plays a huge role in your overall satisfaction.
So, check out these quick tips and topics to think about when you’re trying to find the perfect neighborhood for you in Dallas.
Safety and Schools,
Among the many factors that determine how good a neighborhood will be for your unique life, there are two that most home buyers would probably put at or near the top of their list, safety and schools. The reasons being are pretty clear. Families come first and the safety and quality of education of one’s family come high on the list of most people’s priorities.
That’s why it’s hard to beat safety and school quality in neighborhood must-haves. And yet, many of those that end up regretting the neighborhood they chose believe the school quality in their area was oversold. That’s why it’s useful to use online tools to crosscheck with the reliable words of many to see what the safety and school situation is like in the neighborhood you have your eye on. Look into the local public and private elementary, junior and high schools, as well as daycare programs. With such important information, nothing compares to hearing from those who already live there.
Don’t Forget the Vibe
For those who tend to take a more calculated approach to life’s most important decisions, it’s important to remember that for all the statistics on crime and schools and reviews, you can’t overestimate the importance of the feel of a neighborhood, the subjective experience of the place you might be living in.
When you first spend time in the neighborhood, remember your first impressions. What do you notice first about the neighborhood? Do the streets have curb appeal? Are the houses well-maintained? Do the shops and restaurants look hip and inviting? You'll want to feel good about where you call home, and impress buyers when you're ready to move on.
Put “the right neighborhood vibe” on your must-have list next to number of bedrooms during your home search. Do you want a quiet, family-friendly cul-de-sac full of minivans? Or lively, walkable, urban block flush with entertainment options? Screening for the right vibe can vastly improve your chances of avoiding neighborhood regret.
Transportation and Commute
Among with safety and schools, it’s easy to see why most rate transportation and commute so highly on their list of wants in a neighborhood. After all, it doesn’t matter how much you love your new home if you can’t get to where you need to go without pulling your hair out. Before you commit to an area, use an online map, like Google Maps, to check real-time traffic flow along your commute during peak hours. Most online maps will also have an option that shows public transit routes, including stops.
