You have the option of buying a home at an old neighborhood or a new community. It’s just like buying an old vintage car or one of the latest models available. The older car may look charming but it is neither economical nor a practical decision unless you’ve got a mechanic in the family.
The car manufacturers have been working relentlessly studying about the human body to come up with features which can provide us more comfort and safety. The same theory applies in homebuilding too, while mapping out a new neighborhood, the planners utilize the years of experience they have to provide homes suitable to the people. There’s no surprise that new communities have flourished all over the country. Living in a new home community creates a pioneer spirit amongst the residents, which one can’t get while deciding to live in an old neighborhood. Since all the residents start living around the same time at a new locality, there is a common bond amongst them.
One must consider the following points while deciding to buy a home in a new community:
1. Workplace, public transport, highways and other transit should be at an approachable distance.
2. Essential services like grocery stores, restaurants, etc. should be easily accessible.
3. Hospitals and Schools should be at a convenient distance from the community.
4. If you have kids, proximity to parks and other recreational centers is welcome.
5. Look for a friendly neighborhood this can make you and your family feel comfortable.
