Buy and Sell a House Fast

Part 2: Knowing Exactly Where You Want to Move

Where do I start?

Whether you’re moving from one part of Austin to another, or from one part of the country to another, most people don’t know too many details about any given neighborhood, other than the one in which you currently live.  In a fast moving market like Austin, you need to know exactly where you want to live so you can move quickly when homes become available.

There are lots of things to consider when choosing your new home, and while price is important, there are many other issues, like:

  • Schools and school district
  • Proximity to work
  • Transportation
  • Size of the home
  • Neighborhood amenities
  • Neighborhood lifestyle
  • Overall price and price per square foot
  • What’s the history and future of the neighborhood?
  • Proximity to outdoor recreation

That’s a lot of research to do on your own.
