There are many things you can change about a home, but location is not one of them. Just as the look and “feel” of the home is essential to your satisfaction, so is the neighborhood you choose to live in. The perfect neighborhood is out there -- it just takes a little bit of planning and research.

For example, if you are an avid outdoor enthusiast, then neighborhoods such as Southpark Bluff, Sahalee, or Scenic Park might be a great option. If you hope to be close to the water for gorgeous scenic views, then Turnagain Heights, Westpark, or Seascape would be a great fit! If simply being close to amenities is your priority, then look no further than Third Addition or Downtown Anchorage.

Along with the home itself, your surroundings are also important for your quality of life. Here is a list of things to consider when choosing the neighborhood that is right for you.

Drive the neighborhood
  • Does it look like a place you’d like to live?

  • Is it near amenities you would prefer to be close to?

  • How is the commute?

  • What is it like at night?

School zones and quality
  • What is the average school performance and test performance?

  • How much is the school district spending per student?

  • What is the school size and teacher-student ratio?

  • What is the college bound average?

  • How does the school rank amongst other nearby schools?

Do the research
  • What is the crime rate compared to other areas?

  • Are there amenities you’d like to be nearby such as universities, stores or entertainment?

  • Consider the future property value on the surrounding homes.

Whether you want to be in the heart of the city, or in a more remote area of town, there is something for everyone in the beautiful city of Anchorage.
