Are you looking at new home communities? There are many decisions to make when buying a new home, such as choosing the floor plan and design features. You also need to take into consideration the location and lifestyle of a community, and what amenities are offered.
Before you start your new home search, come up with a list of wants and needs. Determine what factors are most important in the decision-making process. Do you want a quiet community or bustling neighborhood? Do you need easy access to hospitals and other medical facilities? Once you have your “wish list” in place, you can narrow down the right neighborhoods, saving yourself time and possibly even money.
As you drive around new home communities, determine how close each one is to the services you need every day, like grocery stores, drug stores or dry cleaners. Check on opening and closing times of these establishments, as well as whether parking is convenient.
If you love spending time outdoors, look for a neighborhood that is close to parks, playgrounds and other recreational facilities. Central Ohio has about 48 miles of bike trails, giving you the perfect opportunity to head out for a long bike ride on the weekends, or after work. There’s also thousand’s of acres of parkland as well.
Schools are another important consideration when choosing where to buy among the new home communities. Maronda Homes has communities that are located within school districts that grade an A or better.
