When you’re shopping for your next home, whether it’s a beachfront condo in Port Aransas or a $250,000 home on North Padre Island, it’s a good idea to check out the neighborhood—and the neighbors—before you actually fall in love with the place.
Checking Out the Neighborhood
It’s always a good idea to drive through the neighborhood at various times of day (especially the times you’ll be out and about) so you can see what’s happening in the area. Are there people out grilling? Is it a more adult-oriented environment, or are there kids playing, riding bikes, and skateboarding?
You can also get a lot of information on a neighborhood by stopping and chatting up the people who are out when you swing by. Besides, it’ll give you a head start on getting to know your neighbors.
Plan for the Location, Too
Is your potential neighborhood closer to work, school, and other places you frequent, or is it farther away? It’s a good idea to check the commute times before you settle on one subdivision or community, because after a move is no time to discover that the drive is unbearable.
