What Should You Look For When Shopping For A Child-Friendly Residence Like 5701 11th St N?

Shoppers 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 understand the Arlington County real estate market.

Some older furnaces blow hot air up that can be dangerous for infants. It has happened that a toddler standing on a hot grate has had minor burns on the baby’s feet. A gas fireplace can be dangerous for children. Some parents in Arlington, Virginia might not know that according to the Consumer Safety Product Commission, within three minutes, the glass doors of a gas fireplace can become hot enough to cause third-degree burns. Then, it takes about 45 minutes for the glass to cool down.

All parents looking at a property like 5701 11th St N know the importance of having a yard, but unless you plan to go outside every time the children go outside, you’ll also want to check how easy it is to see that yard from indoors. A big play lawn is nice, but for most parents it’s so much nicer if it’s easy to watch children.

When you inspect a townhouse, check to see if the kitchen windows are situated so you can prep a meal while the children play Wiffle ball on the lawn? Or if you work from home, does your desk have a clear view of your children’s jungle-gym or back lawn?
