Thailand – March 31, 2016 – There are many reasons why you could be buying a new home. This could either be an investment for you, or a change in lifestyle, or both. However, no matter what reason you may have for buying a new home, one of the most important things to consider is where you would buy it. Location is important to the home buying process.

To help you out in choosing a desirable location, here’s what you need to consider.

  1. Geographic Location. Where you want to live in is important that is why when you choose a location, make sure you take into account the climate of the place you think of moving to, its proximity to your loved ones, the average home prices there, as well as the job opportunities for you.
  2. Urban or Rural? Of course you get to choose whether you want to live in a big city, outside a big city or in a rural setting. However, you should know that the place you choose can impact your peace and quiet, the lot size you can purchase, school options for your kids if you have any, shopping, entertainment and even access to medical services.
  3. Remember that each neighborhood can be very different from the other. Make sure that you choose a neighborhood that complements your lifestyle and one you feel comfortable living in. It is also important that you research on the crime rate of the neighborhood as well as making sure you can actually get along with your neighbors.
  4. If you have kids, then a house’s proximity to the school is also important so make sure there are good schools nearby the place you plan on settling down.
  5. You should also consider the distance between your workplace and the location you are eyeing. Consider transportation options or whether or not it would be convenient for you.
  6. Your safety of course is of the utmost importance. Naturally, you would be able to buy a home for less when you buy into a neighborhood with a higher crime rate.
  7. Visit during Day & Night. Before you decide on your dream home Pattaya, make sure that you visit the house during both day and night so that you could observe it in different times of the day.
