Checking the neighbourhood: The benefit of investigating the local community

By James Brown

Before putting down an offer on a property, you should definitely be sure to look into the local community and neighbourhood before signing on the dotted line. After all, this is the environment you'll be moving into – or trying to convince tenants to move into – and if the area isn't suited to your needs, this could be a problem in the long term. 

Therefore, be sure to check out the local region and ask your real estate agent in Burpengary as many questions about the area as you can. Here are some tips to make sure you do the best job possible. 

Ask the vendors about their experience

One way to gauge a neighbourhood is to ask the sellers about their experience in the region. You may find out that the neighbourhood is the reason why they're moving on, which should be major warning signs for you. 

Asking if they have children and how they found that aspect of the community is also good, especially if you're planning on having kids of your own in the future. 

Visit throughout the week

Most open inspections are held at the weekend, so make sure you check out the neighbourhood at other times. While it might be nice and tranquil during the weekend, the weekdays could be a different story, especially at night. It's important to check all times of the day and make sure you're willing to live through the changing atmospheres.
