Deciding On A Community: Select a community that will allow you to best live your daily life. Many people with children choose communities based on schools. Do you want access to shopping and public transportation? Is access to local facilities like libraries and museums important to you? Or do you prefer the peace and quiet of a rural community? When you find places that you like, talk to people that live there. They know the most about the area and will be your future neighbors. More than anything, you want a neighborhood where you feel comfortable.
What About A Home Located In A Flood Plain?
What Other Issues Should I Consider Before Buying?
Do I Need To Be There For The Inspection?It's not required, but it's a good idea. Let the inspector do their job while you take notes and pictures. Following the inspection the home inspector will be able to answer questions about the report and any problem areas. This is also an opportunity to hear an objective opinion on the home you'd like to purchase and it is a good time to ask general maintenance questions.
What Do I Do If I Feel Like I Am Being Excluded From Seeing A Neighborhood?Immediately contact the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) if you ever feel excluded from a neighborhood or particular house. Also, contact HUD if you believe you are being discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, nationality, familial status, or disability. HUD's Office of Fair Housing has a hotline for reporting incidents of discrimination: 1-800-669-9777 and 1-800-927-9275 for the hearing impaired.
