Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

Anyone will tell you that buying a home in a good neighborhood is essential. But what things go into making one neighborhood more desirable than another? Aside from an intangible feeling about a place, there are a number of qualities that set some neighborhoods apart, such as:Good public schools nearby.Well-maintained homes and clean public areas.Close proximity to good shopping.Public facilities like parks and community centers.

Doing thorough neigborhood research is critical if you truly want your home to fit your needs. Here are some basic strategies:Call City Hall

You may like an area now, but you could feel differently if a football stadium or six-lane highway will be your future neighbor. Check with local officials on the zoning of neighborhoods and the likelihood of any substantial public projects. Large projects such as major road construction are planned years in advance.Resale Potential

Though appreciation can be an impossible thing to predict, it's good to at least try to determine a home's resale potential. Slow selling homes may just be a function of the current market, but they could also indicate problems (or perceived problems) with the neighborhood that could affect resale. Check for any information on new industries or companies moving to the area in the future that could lead to housing demand later.Do the Footwork

Probably the most important step in researching neighborhoods is to get a first-hand look. Talk to residents, visit local schools, businesses, and parks, and get to know your way around. If you plan on using public transportation, see what options are available. Be sure to visit the neighborhood at several different times of day. Three quick ways to scope out a neighborhood:Eat at local restaurants (non-chains) to get a feel for the people.Attend a community meeting.Read the community newspaper for at least a week.

In the end your impression of a neighborhood will largely be an emotional reaction. By researching the facts and future of a given neighborhood, you'll ensure that your hunches are well informed.

      02/26/2014 - jsettl15
      Bought a home in 2010.
      Deborah helped me find the PERFECT house a couple years ago. She was patient and focused and knows the upstate of SC better than anyone! I absolutely recommend her and her team to anyone searching for a home.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Woodruff, SC.
      Deborah is both personable and professional. She drove me and my family to many homes and was very positive and patient. We lived out of state at the time but each time we contacted her she always made time for us and made us feel as if we were her most important clients. Two thumbs up!!

      Showed home in 2013 in Spartanburg, SC.
      Deborah is extremely knowledgeable and a genuine pleasure to work with. I was on an exploratory trip weighing the merits of a retirement relocation to SC. Deborah spent the entire day with me and showed me at least ten homes throughout the greater Spartanburg/Greenville area. All these were real contenders, no fillers just to make a few good ones look better. Deborah does her homework.

      While I am still undecided about a move, I would work with Deborah again in a flash. I highly recommend her.
