4 Ways to Test Drive a House Before You Buy It

Try these ideas to test out whether or not a house is right for you…

  1. Test the commute. Take the trip in the morning and again at the end of the day to get a feel for traffic.
  2. Hang out in the ’hood. Shop at the corner store and chat with members of the community. This will help you figure out the neighborhood vibe.
  3. Visit the school. If you have children, tour their school and have them shadow a student for a day.
  4. Check out the house at different times of the day. This will give you a better sense of what the street, traffic patterns and neighbors are like.
