Home purchasers with kids—or who hope to have kids soon—should be aware of certain kid-friendly characteristics. Do you know all the things you should seek?
I know the the City of Alexandria real estate market.
Many parents are alert regarding purchasing a house on a busy street, so that their kids don't end up chasing a football into traffic. For this reason, the ideal choice is a cul-de-sac.
But here's what's often overlooked: sidewalks. They offer an extra layer of safety, since they provide a buffer between cars and kids at play, and are crucial during the wagon or bike phase. A sidewalk is a great place for a game of hopscotch or a lemonade stand.
Think hard about the local community. The last thing you want is to get a family residence, only to learn later that there's a sex offender living next door. Play it safe and check the National Sex Offender Public Website, which allows you to pinpoint the locale of any sex offenders in a particular neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.
