Whether you’re searching the market for a new home or for an investment property, there are a few things you should do while picking out properties.

First of all, look at properties you’re interested in at all times of the day. You should visit properties multiple times, in the morning, afternoon, and at night to see what’s going on. This will help get you a true feel of the neighborhood.

If the property is somewhere you plan to live yourself, test out the daily commute. Pretend as if you’re already living there by taking an early morning drive from the property to your place of work. When you leave work for the day, do the same thing.

Your commute will be a big part of daily life once you’ve moved—it’s important to know whether the commute to and from this property will fit your lifestyle.

Only you can decide what is right for you and your lifestyle.

There are other factors related to lifestyle to consider, as well. Find out if there are any covenants, conditions, or restrictions on the property that might clash with your lifestyle.

Conversely, these things could also help the value of your home. Only you can decide what is right for you and your lifestyle.

Don’t forget to consider items within the home itself. For example, ask yourself if there are enough bedrooms and bathrooms. To determine more complex details, hire professionals to inspect the property. Doing this will help you to uncover any mechanical, plumbing, or electrical issues.

Also, even though you have yet to move into the property—you should already be thinking about its resale value. This is especially true if you are in the military or if you anticipate a job change which might displace you from your current area.
