Many homebuyers choose to avoid a busy street and purchase a house on a cul-de-sac instead.
However, a cul-de-sac has pros and cons you should be aware of up front.
Since there’s only one way in and out, a cul-de-sac has less traffic than a typical street.
Depending on the size and layout of the cul-de-sac, the number of houses, and how often neighbors have visitors, parking could be a problem.
Since a cul-de-sac has significantly less traffic than other neighborhoods, it’s a natural place for children to gather and play.
Houses on a cul-de-sac often face each other.
Neighbors may see each other every day, get to know each other and keep an eye on each other’s properties and kids.
