You've checked your credit scores and reviewed data that's on your credit reports. You've also contacted an experienced real estate agent, a realtor who knows the ins and outs of the neighborhoods you want to move to. The real estate agent has worked with you to find the right home size and home price. There's just one last thing to do before you buy a house.

Find out if you're moving to the best neighborhoods

Check out these signs to see if you might be getting ready to move into a great neighborhood. Consider your passions, interests, lifestyle and work arrangements while you review the signs.

  • Neighboring properties are well maintained in the best neighborhoods. Lawns are cut; hedges are trimmed. If you're house shopping during spring or summer, you spot sprinklers watering lawns.
  • Area businesses are thriving. A thriving business district is a sign that a neighborhood is relatively safe and home to residents who care about the community.
  • None of the houses in the neighborhood is in foreclosure. If as few as two houses in the neighborhood are in foreclosure, it could be a sign of trouble. For example, if new homeowners discover that their house has mold or sewage issues, they could move out or refuse to continue making mortgage payments. Foreclosures could also be a sign that area businesses are conducting layoffs.
  • Zoning laws protect the neighborhood from transportation departments building highways through the neighborhoods. This may not stop construction, but zoning laws could slow the build of new roadways in the area.
  • Walkability scores for the neighborhood are good. Safety isn't the only factor considered when assessing neighborhood walkabiliity scores. Ease walking to malls, schools, hospitals and shops also factor into neighborhood walkability scores.
  • Liquor stores, bars and clubs are out of sight.It's not that you just don't see adult entertainment facilities. These businesses are not within walking distance of the neighborhood.

Neighbors are a big part of home satisfaction

  • Neighborhood residents organize positive community events like holiday expos, charity fundraisers, educational events and youth sporting activities.
  • Landfills are nowhere near the neighborhood. In addition to being eye sores, landfills can also pose health hazards.
  • Residents show that they respect each other.They don't play loud music, especially at night. They also don't incite altercations with other people who live in the community.
  • Schools in the neighborhood have high local,state and regional ratings.
  • Crime is low. That doesn't mean that you don't practice home safety after you move in. It could be a sign that neighbors know one and look out for each other.
  • Pets are trained and properly secured. The last thing you want is to move into a neighborhood that is home to an aggressive dog that jumps the fence or breaks off its chain one or more times a week.

Moving into the best neighborhoods makes home buying rewarding. It's so important to the home buying process that checking out a neighborhood is a top house shopping priority. As tempting as it might be to think that you can be happy as long as you love your home, get to know your neighbors before you move. After all,buying a house is about more than gaining new living space. It's also about the new people you are inviting into your life.
