3 factors to take neighborhoods from good to great
If you’re in the market for a new home, it’s not just about picking the right house, it’s about picking the right location for your lifestyle.
Where you live is important, and not just because it is a place where you will spend most of your time, relax and unwind, raise a family, entertain guests and invest your life. Your home is a reflection of who you are, but also how you feel.
When looking for a new home to meet your needs and align with your personality, there’s a checklist of things to consider. While many people focus on what’s inside, another important consideration that is often overlooked is where the home is located. Where your home is situated can affect everything from your access to highways to what kinds of social activities you participate in, informing every part of your day-to-day existence.
At Pinnacle Homes, we focus on three main factors when we determine where to build our communities.
Great schools and highly-ranked districts
Neighborhood schools can elevate an entire community. Choosing a home near a quality school district is one of the most important things to think about, whether you have a family now, may start one in the future or are downsizing to an active adult community. Living near a quality school district can mean an engaged, supportive neighborhood and a better overall quality of living for you and your family.
When Pinnacle Homes is considering the build of a new community, we rely on state rankings and reputable websites like greatschools.org and niche.com. As such, we have neighborhoods in some of the most highly-ranked school districts in Southeast Michigan, like Plymouth-Canton, Novi, Northville, Bloomfield Hills, and Clarkston. These districts are regarded as some of the best in the state.
Aside from the importance of a quality school system to families, living near one of these top school districts is beneficial to people at every age and stage of life for the impact on the home’s resale value. Homes in these areas tend to hold resale value, better positioning homeowners who may opt to sell down the road.
Proximity to highways, entertainment and health care
Another important thing to consider before starting your home search is location to highways, shops and services. Make sure to look for a home close to highways that will give you easy access to your travel needs, including school, work, family and friends.
In addition, we recommend considering proximity to hospitals and healthcare centers, major employment centers and continued growth. For example, Commerce Township recently announced plans to invest $100 million in a new downtown district, which will be enjoyed by homeowners who live in nearby communities.
A variety of recreation options
With four distinct seasons here in Michigan, there are numerous outdoor activities to enjoy. Pinnacle Homes knows how important it can be for you to get out and enjoy the fresh air, and we consider the outdoor lifestyle to be one of the final factors you should consider as you’re deciding where to buy your new home.
If you love to golf, communities like Washington Township or South Lyon are great places to live. If you want to spend Saturday mornings strolling through a historic downtown, consider Northville. Have you always dreamed of living by a lake? Commerce Township may be the perfect place for you.
