Finding the right house for you is only part of the equation; finding the neighborhood you want to be in is also important. What are the local resources to each of the neighborhoods? What’s the closest grocery store, highway, park, or school for your children? What your lifestyle is will determine what is most important to you when determining which neighborhood you want to move to.
The California Association of Realtors released a survey in 2018 asking home buyers what do they want in their ideal neighborhood.
