For many people, the neighborhood is just as important as the home itself—so it makes sense to get to know the area before you fall in love with a house in a certain subdivision or community. That’s true whether you’re looking for a condo for sale in Grand Junction or a single-family home for sale in Palisade.
If you can, get to know the neighbors, too, because you can learn a lot about your surroundings by talking to people who already live there.
Checking Out Your New Neighborhood
Try to drive through your potential new neighborhood at various times of day. See what it’s like in the early morning, after school lets out, and in the evening. Are people out and about, or can you see tumbleweeds blowing across the streets?
If there are people out, stop and say hello. It’s a good idea to introduce yourself to gather some information about the area, and it’ll give you a head start on getting to know your new neighbors if you decide to make an offer on the home there.
Location, Location, Location
Ask your Grand Junction Realtor® to check the zoning plans of the neighborhood to make sure there isn’t a freeway being built through the community, and pay attention to the growth of the area just outside the neighborhood. You’ll be glad you thought ahead!
Consider your commute times, too. Your new home may be farther from work, school, or other places you frequent, so take that into consideration before you make an offer, as well.
