Marsha moved to her dream home last year. She loved the neighborhood, she loved the schools, she loved that it was close to her work.
She thought that she loved everything about it.
Marsha loved *almost* everything about her new home
The one thing she didn’t consider before she moved was where the nearest shops and restaurants were.
Before she moved, she didn’t realize that she’d have to drive almost 20 minutes to pick up eggs and milk at the grocery store. Dropping a package off at the post office took 22 minutes each way. And, strangely, there wasn’t a coffee place anywhere in sight.
If you are planning on moving, you’ll want to know where the closest shops and restaurants are to your future new home. One way to do that is to drive around before you buy the home.
You could drive to find amenities near a home
Driving around would be a good way to find the nearest shops and restaurants to a home.
Or, you could “let your fingers do the walking” and start here.
You can find amenities here, at Home by School
You could also start by finding shops and restaurants here, at Home by School, on our Home Search App*. By looking first at the general layout on the map, you will save yourself from doing lots of driving.
Our Home Search App* can help you select a home that is as close to the amenities as you would like it to be.
