As a homebuyer, you want to prepare as much as possible when you start looking at houses. By doing so, you'll be able to fully evaluate a residence based on your personal wants and needs and ensure you can find your dream house quickly and easily. However, there are many under-the-radar factors that homebuyers must consider when they check out a house, including: 1. Homeowners Association If you're evaluating condos, you should learn about the homeowners association (HOA) that manages the property. This will allow you to review HOA fees, how the HOA operates and other factors that may influence your decision to buy a home. Typically, it is simple to discover all you need to know about an HOA. To do so, you can work with a real estate agent who should be able to provide information about an HOA. Also, you can always contact an HOA directly and receive all the information you need without delay. 2. TV, Cable and Internet Service Providers Do you work from home and require a high-speed internet connection to complete your day-to-day tasks? Or, do you want to ensure you can get your favorite TV channels at all times? Regardless of your individual needs, you'll want to check out the TV, cable and internet service providers available in cities and towns where you'd like to live. This will enable you to find out if these local providers can meet your needs consistently. In addition, you should consider cell phone connectivity in an area, as this will allow you to determine if your cell service provider ensures you can enjoy clear calls in a particular city or town. 3. Attractions and Landmarks Do you enjoy spending a day at the park, checking out historic landmarks or going to concerts? No matter which activities you enjoy, it is essential to learn about the entertainment options near a home you may purchase. For instance, if a concert venue is close to a residence, it may affect nearby traffic patterns as concert-goers travel to and from this destination. Conversely, if you want a house that allows you to separate from the everyday hustle and bustle of the city, you may want to evaluate residences that are located many miles away from popular attractions and landmarks. 4. Walking Paths If you like to stay active, you'll surely want to find a house that features a wide range of safe walking paths that you can use every day. Whether it's going for a morning jog or simply enjoying a jaunt with your dog, you may be able to improve your chances of remaining active and healthy if you purchase a home with multiple walking paths nearby. Of course, a real estate agent can help you explore a vast array of homes in cities and towns nationwide. This professional will learn about your home preferences and allow you to streamline your search for the perfect house as well. Consider the aforementioned factors as you prepare to search for houses, and ultimately, you'll be better equipped to make a more informed home purchase.

What’s the optimal commute time for most people to get to and from work? According to many surveys and research studies, this amount of time is around 30 minutes at the most. The closer you live to your job, the happier you’ll be (that is of course if you do like your job!) If you live further from work, you may think that the bigger house is worth it because of your paycheck. If your commute is miserable, however, you may want to rethink your journey. 


You’ll choose where you live based on a variety of factors including the neighborhood dynamics, the school system and the safety of the area. You may be willing to sacrifice one of these factors to gain another. 


Metropolitan Or The Suburbs? 


Generally speaking, the center of jobs tends to be in metropolitan areas. Yet, better schools and neighborhoods are often seen outside of the city. This makes for longer commute times. Depending upon which city you’re talking about, commute times can vary widely. New York and Los Angeles may beat smaller cities like Cleveland or Kansas City in the average number of minutes that people commute to work.


Don’t Worry, Be Happy 


Your happiness factor is very important when it comes to your living situation and your commute time. Whatever is most important to you should go on the top of your property search list. If you don’t mind spending an hour in the car each way to get to and from work, then you can live a bit farther away without much issue. You’ll also need to add in factors like public transportation, if that’s important to you.   


If you do prefer to take public transportation to get where you need to go, you may need to weigh a few factors. You’ll need to look in areas where trains and buses are more accessible. Living closer to public transportation can often come at a bit of a higher price tag. However, you’ll be able to save some money on the cost of keeping a vehicle. All of these factors need to be kept in mind when you’re beginning your house search and making your wishlist.   


Remember that the area of the country that you choose to live in has an effect on your commute. While some cities have more traffic than others, jobs my be more plentiful in a wider area, making it easier and more affordable to live closer to work. New York City has a much different dynamic than Tulsa, let’s say. 


Working From Home


In the most ideal of situations, maybe your commute is only to your home office! In this case, you’ll only need to be mindful of how far it is to get to the places you need to visit most often. You’ll also want to find a home that has a good space for you to have your office in. 


We all need to work in order to pay for the beautiful homes that we own. Why not make it much easier to get to and from work, and be mindful of commute times in your home search? With today’s technology, it’s a whole lot easier to get this information, so do your research! Happy house hunting!
