Part of finding a home you’ll love is finding the perfect neighborhood. Here are important points to help you when you start scouting out communities in St. Johns County.
Make a list
What makes you happy? What do you need? Put together a list of everything you need and what you can’t live without, U.S. New says. Use that as a guide when you check out communities in St. Johns County. That should help you narrow down your options.
Factor in your lifestyle
Do you like living close to restaurants and shops? Or do you want a neighborhood that’s away from all that? Maybe you’d want to live closer to the beach or have daily access to the water. If you’re looking for a retirement home or weekend place you can use whenever you need to get away from the city, then that’s going to affect the kind of neighborhoods you check out as well.
Do you have kids?
If you have kids or planning to have a few pretty soon, then pick neighborhoods that are a short distance away from schools. That way, you won’t have to worry about your kids enduring long commutes or rides just to get to and from school every day.
Think about your work
If you’re moving because you’re transitioning to a new job, then pick a neighborhood that you’re willing to commute to and from every day. This is going to be hugely dependent on how far you are willing to commute.
Find the home that’s right for you. Use these pointers to get an idea of what to look for when you scout around for the perfect neighborhood.
