How to pick a place to live that you’ll love

Every neighborhood has something different to offer. The trick is to figure out what matters to you and then learn how to find a good neighborhood that’s the best possible match.

You probably have no shortage of friends and family who love the neighborhood where they live. They may have been drawn by the character of the houses, the accessibility to good schools, a walkable distance to parks and shops, or any number of other factors.

But finding your own perfect spot to live and choosing the right neighborhood for how you live now and how you want to live in five or 10 years may feel daunting. The trick is to review sought-after attributes, such as those houses and schools, and decide what matters most to you. You may not be able to find a neighborhood that has all of those characteristics, but you may find one that has a majority of them.
