L ook before you leap…when you are purchasing a home you are also purchasing the neighbourhood you are in!
The quality of your neighbourhood can have a direct impact on your home and security. Hence you must survey the area before committing to sign on the dotted line.
HOW TO INVESTIGATE?
Use the right tools to research before you go in for the kill…
Visit the place at an odd hour: Visit the area at an odd hour to get a feel of the surroundings. The best opinions will come from your neighbours. There will be no opinion more honest than that from the locals.
Contact the local estate agent: Talk to the local estate agent to give you an unbiased appraisal of the place and an appraiser to estimate the overall value of the home and area.
Use the Internet: The internet is a safe and easy way to get to know the project and neighbourhood better. Wikipedia will guide you through the history of the city in which the project is located. A website of the housing project will give you valuable insights.
WHAT TO INVESTIGATE?
Knowing what to research is extremely important. You should look at:
Amenities: What amenities does the residential complex offer? Playground, swimming pool, Club House, landscaped surroundings? Sporting facilities? Community and recreational centres? Gymnasium, Health club, Parking space? Children’s play area?
Proximity to workplace: If you are able to locate a residential complex that is within proximity to your workplace, you will cut down on valuable to and fro travel time. The long term benefits: more time to pursue your hobbies or simply spend more time with family.
Proximity to Public services: Do the surrounding roads lead to communication centres – highways, public transportation, railways, airport etc? Are the roads well lit? Police station, fire station etc?
Proximity to schools/colleges: This is particularly important if you have kids, as otherwise it can be frustrating to arrange for pick-up and drop. Proximity to school/college will also enhance value of your property if you venture into resale.
Noise and traffic: Make sure you have an area that is both green and serene. While proximity to communication centres is important it should not be so close as to disturb the peace and tranquility of the area.
Crime rate: Knowing that you are safe in your home and in the surrounding environment is a great soother. Being familiar with the crime rate of the area is important.
