When it comes to moving to a new home, it can be all too easy to stick to your comfort zone. Literally. According to a recent study, there were only 14 miles between the average American homebuyers’ new home and the one they moved from.
Urban areas are typically favored by young couples because they offer entertainment, shopping, and nightlife within walking distance. However, once you start a family, you may begin to feel that 14 miles may still be a little too close to the city for your comfort.
That being said, here are a few reasons why you may want to consider leaving the city for a new home community for your next real estate move.
- Urban real estate isn’t set to improve
The real estate market can be unpredictable, especially when you’re a buyer. It’s for this reason that many American homebuyers will opt to hire a real estate agent to find them the best home possible in an ideal neighborhood. However, this can be difficult in an urban area when the top neighborhood to live in can change by the year. A new home community won’t change so quickly so you won’t have to worry about moving just after you’ve started making mortgage payments.
- Urban areas don’t have as much yard space
It can be stressful getting everything into the car just to go for a hike with the kids and your dog. However, when you live in a new home community there’s plenty of yard space for both the kids and your furry friend. What’s more, the extra bit of green helps provide you and your family with better air quality.
- Urban living makes you more stressful
When you live in an urban area, the constant exposure to lights (even at night) can have a detrimental impact on your sleep. What’s more, the crowds of people and the constant go-go-go atmosphere can leave you feeling drained. This can increase the amount of stress you’re under, which leave you feeling depressed over time. By moving to a new home community, you reduce your exposure to urban noise and constant stress.

With 2018 officially here, it’s time to start the new year off on the right house-hunting foot. Whether you’re looking for low maintenance living or an active lifestyle in a new home community, there are steps you can take to prepare yourself for buying a new home.
There’s a lot that goes into preparing to buy a new home. Fortunately, we compiled a series of steps to help you get on the right track.
- Know your credit score
A good credit score can help you get a good mortgage rate, which is why it’s important to know yours. FICO scores will range between 300 to 850. The best credit score to have for a mortgage is typically 740 and higher. The higher your credit score, the lower your mortgage rate could be even by 1%.
- Don’t open new credit cards
By opening another credit line, you’re putting your credit score in a vulnerable position. Debt is one of the first things a bank will see when you go to take out a mortgage, which is why it’s essential to keep your credit score at its highest. A new line of credit can sabotage your score and, ultimately, cost you a lower mortgage.
- Look for an ideal neighborhood
Up to 92% of home buyers use the internet when searching for a new house. However, it’s essential to consider the neighborhood of the house when doing your search. This is because you can change a home overtime if it’s not ultimately to your liking. But you can’t change a home’s neighborhood.

It can be a challenge to downsize one’s home. Whether you’re an empty nester looking for a luxury townhome for yourself or a new family moving away from a large home, it can be stressful to reduce the number of belongings in your house as you settle into your new home.
However, if you have a plan set in place prior to downsizing, you can reduce your anxiety and improve the style of your future home. Check out the following tips to help organize and downsize your home for a lifestyle in a new home community.
- Plan ahead of moving day. It doesn’t help anyone to wait until the last minute, but especially when it comes to downsizing. Begin by setting goals for yourself and ensuring everyone is on the same page. This will help to reduce stress later on and prevent conflicts between families and couples.
- Consider your lifestyle. Once you’ve established goals for yourself and your family, it’s time to begin considering your lifestyle and how it’ll change. For instance, if you have a significant amount of furniture in your home but you don’t entertain often, it may be a good idea to cut back on your loveseats. By considering your lifestyle during the downsizing process, you can also improve the design of your new home in the future.
- Everything should have a purpose. One of the biggest problems people have with downsizing is they assume they need more stuff than what’s truly necessary. Every object you bring to your new home should have a purpose. And the more dual-purpose those objects are, the better. A bookshelf can become a desk. A desk can become a kitchen table. The list goes on. No matter what you decide to bring to your new home, be sure that it serves a practical purpose (even if that purpose is purely sentimental!)
When moving into new homes, many Americans will move only 14 miles away from their old house. This is because, once a family finds their ideal location, it can be difficult to leave. However, with ParkView at Chesterbrook, you don’t have to worry about leaving behind an ideal location.
With low maintenance living, one of the best school districts in the United States, and a classic community, we guarantee ParkView at Chesterbrook will be your ideal neighborhood.
