Location, Location, Location: What Area Amenities Do You Need When Looking for a House?

What's nearby and what do you need to be nearby?
Depending on your situation in life you may need to be near a hospital or need to have stores within walking or at least within short commuting distance. You may have hobbies and need to have an easy access to facilities such as a gym or you may like the great outdoors and want to live near a park. There may be more questions to ask yourself when looking for a home such as:

  • Is there a public golf course nearby?
  • Is there a public library nearby?
  • Are there public tennis courts in the community?
  • What other recreation facilities are in the neighborhood?
A swinging single may want to be near or in an area with an active nightlife whereas a family may not need or like this at all. You may like to be nearby good restaurants and the theatre. Is your job within easy commute distance and time and can you get to the highway or interstate quickly and with ease?

Remember the old but true mantra, which is "location, location and location." Living beside a used car dealership on one side and with a busy bar on the other side may not be the most ideal location. It's important to think about this beforehand.
