If you’re searching for a place to start a family, you probably have a lot on your mind, including schools, medical care and safety. Property sales in South Philly and other parts of the city have begun to boom with families new and old, and more and more families from the tri-state area are taking advantage of Philadelphia’s hidden gems for families.
While you’re searching for your next family home, take our tips to help make sure that the area your new potential home is in is safe and great for kids before making a down payment.
- Homes are hard to come by. The number of homes available in any given neighborhood is usually a good indication of how safe the area is. As areas become safer and more primed for families to move in, homes begin to get snatched up. For example, property sales in Graduate Hospital have increased as more and more couples with children move in. Take a look at the area around where your potential new home is located.
- Forestry is abounding. Areas that cater to families take special care to give them the facilities that are important to couples with children. Think parks, nature preserves and forests. Check the map in the surrounding areas, and check out the conditions of the homes near the forestry if there is any. This can be a good indicator of the family-friendliness of the area.
- The neighbors are friendly. The best way to learn more about a new neighborhood? Ask the people already living in it! Don’t be afraid to strike up conversation with people you see around. They will have valuable and honest information about homeowners, and they might end up being your new neighbors!.
