18. Begin the Process of Picking a Neighborhood

Selecting your future neighborhood is an essential component of buying your dream home. Picking where you want to live before you begin searching for homes helps to minimize the risk of finding the perfect home but in a less-than-desirable location. Make a list of all of the essential features you need. This list may include details such as being located within a certain driving distance of your place of employment or inside of a highly rated school district.

Once you have those aspects figure out, you can make a list of secondary features that are desirable but not necessary. For example, you may like the idea of having mature trees in the yard, but they aren’t required for you to make an offer. Both of these lists guide your agent. As a result, more of the homes you look at should meet your specifications.
