Scope Out Your Neighborhoods

It never hurts to drive through a few neighborhoods. This gives you an opportunity to see how the neighborhood generally looks. You can see if it’s well kept, or not. You can also judge the feel of the neighborhood by the amount of cars on the street and for sale or for rent signs in the neighborhood. This will help you gauge if a lot of people are renting or are unhappy with their homes.

Envision Yourself In The Neighborhood

Instead of judging everyone in and around your neighborhood, turn the focus back on yourself. Can you imagine yourself living in this area? Are the houses the type of houses that you enjoy?
