# 3 Neighborhood Information  

Now that you have your list of needs and wants and you know how much you can afford to spend, it's time to look at some houses! Well, not just yet. Step back for a moment and consider the larger picture. People don't just buy a house, they buy the neighborhood the house is in. Think about that...if you found the perfect house but it was in a neighborhood that was not to your liking, would you make an offer on it? Most likely the answer would be, "No."

So, you will need to make another list of what  you want to live in. You will most likely want to consider things like how living in the neighborhood will effect your drive time to and from work, what amenities are offered (swimming pool, tennis courts, park, etc.), and, if you have children who are attending school or soon will be, what school district you will be in and how close the schools are. You may even want to make two lists just like you did with your home criteria.

Shana can save you time and money by taking the information from your list of needs and wants for your home, your pre-approval, and your list of needs and wants for the neighborhood and incorporating them into a broad search profile which will then be narrowed down to specific areas dictated by the market in which you will be looking. My experience in the local market will be an invaluable resource during this step
