In Spring Texas, we have over 45 neighborhoods for home buyers to choose from. Since each neighborhood / subdivision offers something a little different for its residents, the task of choosing a neighborhood sometimes can become a little overwhelming.
To begin the process start by ranking the following subdivision criteria in order of thier importance to you:
Location – convenient to major interstates, shopping, dining, qucik commute to your job
Mature trees and landscaping – usually only found in the older subdivisions
Street lights – some subdivisions have yard lamps in place of overhead street lights
Sidewalks – not to be taken for granted because not all subdivisions have them
HOA fee – range from $200 – $1,500 depending upon the neighborhood’s amenities, size, and whether its gated.
Tax rate – real estate taxes vary per neighborhood and range from 2.2% – 4%
Access in and out – some subdivisions have no traffic control making it extremely difficult getting in and out of them.
School district – do you have a school district preference and / or individual schools?
Subdivision amenities – range from simple to a park or pool to elaborate of park, Splash Pad, trails, lakes, fountains, fishing, and dog park.
Making a decision on a Spring Texas home does not stop after you have decided whether you want 3 or 4 bedrooms because a home is more than just its rooms. You also need to decide if the subdivision meets your needs and has the attributes that are important to you.
