When you are thinking about buying land, certain factors are necessary to consider before making a decision. Among these factors are community, quality of land/area, recreational options, crime frequency, socioeconomic information, urban life and commute. Geo Commons is a great resource to visualize location-based data, like crime frequency, and socioeconomic information on top of maps.
Many people want the entertainment options of urban life, but also the recreational and peaceful environment of suburban life. So how do you decide what is the right fit for you? It’s important to consider several factors. For instance, living in major cities can have severe financial repercussions. Land within city limits can be up to 75% more expensive than in rural areas. By adding a few extra miles to a commute, the financial benefits are much more significant. Not to mention that the beauty of nature is a difficult thing to experience inside city limits.
While finding the right balance can be difficult to find, it is possible to discover the perfect home with just the right distance. In fact there are many of these communities that are sprouting up throughout the United States, especially in the hill country of Texas, that provide the pristine life of suburban community with easy commutes to work, night life, and entertainment. Many of these communities have land available for new homes amidst lakes, rivers and hill country. Combined with the city options not far off, these environments can be perfect for any family and can be the solution you have been looking for.
There is something to be said for living in the city, but there's also something to be said for living in quiet suburban communities. Both have their advantages and it's difficult to get both. But, there are communities available that provide decent commutes with unparalleled community settings and recreational options.
