    Questions to Ask Yourself When Choosing Neighborhoods

    Are you ready for your next house hunt? 

    While you may have a list of must-haves and expectations to guide your Alpharetta property search, have you considered the “where” of your next home? It’s important to open your scope beyond a lovely house and remember to consider its surroundings, too. Your new neighborhood will determine how you feel in your next real estate property. It will define your new lifestyle, which is why you need to line up your priorities when relocating neighborhoods where you can settle new roots. 

    When considering what qualities to look for in your next Alpharetta neighborhood, ask yourself these questions regarding your lifestyle needs:

    Do you commute to work? 

    If you are driving into the office every day, your commute will set the tone for your mornings and determine how much free time you get in the evenings. A long commute could leave you feeling regularly frustrated and cut a lot of your free time. As you search for your next property, think about what your daily commute would be like if you live there.

    Do you have kids? 

    If you are raising young children, your neighborhood will have a significant impact on their development. A noisy area with people who choose to party all night will leave your children losing sleep and potentially not feeling very settled in your area. If you are a parent, there are plenty of Alpharetta neighborhoods that are perfect for families. These are quieter areas with properties that have large yards and plenty of spots for children to run and play with other neighborhood kids freely. They can bike, roller skate, skip, jump, and play while remaining safe. You’ll be able to bond with other families, and your children could build lifelong memories. 

    How do you feel in certain areas? 

    When it comes to neighborhood searching, trust your gut. Sometimes it’s all about the vibes. Different areas in the community will suit different personalities. You may connect with some regions more than others, and that’s natural. If you don’t feel very comfortable with an area’s busyness, you may be more suitable for somewhere quieter. On the other hand, a slower-paced area may leave you feeling restless and bored, wishing you lived somewhere more lively. By finding an Alpharetta neighborhood that suits you, you’ll feel more confident in your real estate investment. 

    What do you need to be close to?

    Do you already have a favorite grocery store in your current area? Are there specific shops you regularly visit that you want in your next area? When perusing neighborhoods, make sure to check for:

    • Corner shops
    • Cafes
    • Restaurants 
    • Grocery stores 
    • Pharmacies
    • Beauty salons
    • Hardware stores
    • and more
