Homes in ChandlerYou are looking at homes in Chandler AZ with hopes to buy in this vibrant city. While there are many great houses to choose from, it will save you from any frustrations in the long-run to research each neighborhood that’s piqued your interest. There are many things to consider besides the appeal of the house itself. When looking for homes in Chandler AZ, you’ll want to answer these equally important questions before you buy:

  • How close is your future home to local retailers and service providers (post office, hospitals, etc.)?
  • Is your potential new home convenient to major freeways?
  • Is the desired home close to schools and in a good school district? (This matters, even if you don’t have kids. It’s relevant to the value of your home. Good news here in Chandler. The Chandler Unified School District is one of the best in the state!).
  • How long is your commute to work from the homes in Chandler you are considering?
  • Do you like your options for entering and leaving your neighborhood during rush hour?
  • How noisy is the neighborhood during rush hour times – are those sounds too easily heard from inside the home?
  • What is the crime rate in the area? Chandler is below the national average.
  • Are you into exercise? You may want to live in a neighborhood with a good network of sidewalks and paths for both walking or biking.
  • How close are you to area parks? This of course will be more important if you enjoy being active outdoors or have kids.
