My sister plans to move to Oxford, Alabama as soon as her husband’s job is moved to the place. So, she asked me to help her find a good house for sale in the area. While I’m not actually in Oxford, I still helped her search for real estate properties that they could buy and use when they decide to migrate.

As I am travelling for Oxford to personally check on some leads, I made a list of things that I should check when I am choosing the perfect real estate property to buy. After all, I should be careful in placing my sister’s money in the right property, because these things are not cheap.

The first thing to check in a real estate property is a good location. It has to be somewhere that is accessible to the main roads, but at the same time, far enough from all the noise and traffic of the main road. It has to be in a subdivision that is well protected, and it has to be in an area where floods are not easily experienced, as well as other forms of calamities. I’m sure my sister wants her family to be as safe as possible and location is a very big factor in that.

The next thing I would look for when buying a property is the mood of the neighborhood. My sister has children that needs a good community to grow in. As their uncle, I do not want them to live aloof and afraid because the people in the community are not hospitable and friendly. It would also be great if they can easily make friends, and that would only be possible if the people in the area, their soon to be neighbors, are as friendly and as charitable as my sister’s family are.

It would also be great if there are great establishments in the neighborhood. Parks and recreations sites in the area would be a great bonus. It would also be superbly great if they are able to live in an area that is near a reputable school, like the Oxford Middle School.

Lastly, I would check if the property itself is strong and sturdy and in great condition. I will not buy cheap properties only to be bothered by fixing them and repairing them again and again. I would also never go for overly expensive properties that do not even have the quality that I am looking for.

These are basically the things I know I should look for when looking for a home for my sister. Even though it is not my home I am scouting for, I am fairly excited to start the search, and I am also happy that my sister and her family are going to start a new chapter of their lives in a great city. I just have to make sure that they find the perfect place to transfer to, so that their lives will be lived in happiness and content.
