Tips for choosing your suitable housing neighborhood
What is the best criteria you should follow in choosing your suitable residential neighborhood?
If you and your family are about to move to a new neighborhood, you must set your priorities before moving elsewhere. In this article, we are not going to talk about a city or the location of the house, but rather about the criteria for choosing your new neighborhood. In the beginning, this neighborhood must meet your needs and the needs of your family; therefore, this neighborhood must be well-chosen.
First: Does this neighborhood contain the basic and entertaining needs you desire? Can you afford to live in it?
When moving to a new neighborhood, you must consider the cost of life in this neighborhood, as the residential neighborhoods surely differ in terms of area, organization, services, and cost of living, in addition to how close are the service centers to it, such as: markets and malls, as well as schools or universities, and your workplace or the workplace of any member of your family. On such grounds, you can determine if living in this neighborhood is suitable for your monthly budget or not. Moreover, you should make sure that there are no problems with the necessary services, such as electricity, water, quality of paved roads and night light levels.
On the other hand, costly residential neighborhoods may have some positive features, such as being located in a distinct area near workplaces, schools or universities, but in return, you may incur high rental costs.
Second: Does the lifestyle in this neighborhood suits your lifestyle?
In this regard, it is said that the lifestyle and nature of a nurturing environment affect the behaviors of individuals, therefore, the needs of customers differ according to the lifestyles they are accustomed to. As some would prefer quiet neighborhoods, and others do not mind to live in noisy or crowded neighborhoods, while another group of people only live in luxurious high-end neighborhoods, because they are used to live according to such lifestyle.
Therefore, when you decide to move to a new residential neighborhood and you are about to choose it, you must make sure of the well-being of this neighborhood; if you are seeking to live in a comfortable and calm atmosphere, as well as the current and maximum population ratio of the neighborhood (if this neighborhood is a newly built urban area).
Third: Do you know anything about the neighborhood plan you want to move to?
Moreover, several families prefer integrated residential neighborhoods, which include recreational facilities, such as gardens and green parks, and may pay consideration to the cleanliness of the neighborhood, as well as living in residential areas subject to neighborhood departments that maintain public hygiene and are interested in afforestation. Hence, the organization of the neighborhood is a main factor in choosing the residential area; if it is a large and unorganized neighborhood, this may hinder your easy access to any place either inside the neighborhood or even when you want to reach the main streets outside the neighborhood. It might also be difficult for your children and friends who want to visit you.
Adding to that, many people are interested in the wide spaces of streets inside the neighborhoods they live in, and the readiness of such streets for driving cars and riding bikes. In addition, the urban creativity in designing houses and buildings gives each neighborhood its own character, and many customers are usually interested in the appearance of their houses and its consistency with modern public taste.
Fourth: Do you have specific basic standards for your neighbors?
Finally, some people pay great importance to the social level of their neighbors in the residential neighborhoods they want to move to. For this reason, many families are keen to remain in the neighborhoods in which their relatives, old neighbors or friends reside or move to, and if they are not so lucky, they try to move to neighborhoods close to them.
