How to Pick the Perfect Neighborhood

Choosing the right neighborhood is almost as important as selecting the right house or apartment. After all, it needs to be safe, affordable, attractive and pleasant to live in. If you are looking for a new home to buy or rent, you have come to the perfect place, as we are showing you how to pick the perfect neighborhood.
Identify Your Dream Neighborhood
To find your dream neighborhood, you first need to identify exactly what it is you want from a community. For instance, do you long for a quiet street or are you looking for something a little more atmospheric? Do you want to live in an old neighborhood or a new development? Aim to discover exactly what it is you want from your new home, so you can find the best location for your needs.
An Excellent Crime Rating
No-one wants to live in a neighborhood with a high crime rating, not even the criminals themselves. We therefore recommend typing the name of your desired location into a search engine, such as Google or Bing, followed by “crime statistics”.
Contact the Local Police Department
The local police department can also provide detailed information about an area, if you cannot find anything online. In addition to providing details on crime and safety, they can also offer information on community policing or crime prevention projects within a neighborhood.
Walk Through the Neighborhood
The best way to learn more about a neighborhood is by experiencing it for yourself. Walk through the streets to identify the condition of the houses, yards, sidewalks and roads. For example, is litter an issue? Are there many abandoned buildings? Are a lot of properties up for sale? Are the roads well maintained? Are the streets loud or noisy? Walk through the streets at different points in the day to get a sense of the area before you make a move.
Diverse Attractions
The district you live in can determine the level of enjoyment you can experience outside of the home. For example, anyone looking for apartments in Pensacola Florida should consider Crystal Lake Living, which offers a superb range of amenities, such as shops, dining, entertainment, and parks. Drive around your chosen neighborhood to identify the different attractions within proximity to your desired address.
Excellent Schools
Are you moving to an area with your children? Want to start a family in the future? If so, you should review the many different schools within a district, which will provide your children with a fantastic education. A well-kept school is also a sign of an excellent community. Also, identify the distance from the school to your potential home, and if it is safe for children to walk to each day.
Compare Property Values

Speak to a real estate agent about the common property values within the neighborhood, as well as how they compare to five or ten years ago. Rising property prices could be a sign that you could receive a substantial return on your investment.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
