Things to Consider When Moving to a New Neighborhood

  • 1 year ago

You feel ready to move to a new neighborhood with your family. You wonder about things to consider when moving to neighborhoods in Chesterfield. Here’s a quick rundown of some of the essential factors to remember when exploring your options.

Amenities and Community Services

How do you like to relax and spend your free time? Things to consider when moving include community offerings and amenities such as movie theaters, libraries, entertainment, parks, and hiking trails. For community services, find out the number and quality of medical care facilities Chesterfield neighborhoods offer. How far you live from an airport could factor into your decision to move to a specific area of town.

Local Activities and Events

This might seem like an obvious consideration, but it’s not as black and white as most would assume. There is much added value to an area if it has access to the types of activities and events that you are normally interested in. As an example, if you prefer an outdoor lifestyle, you should find a community or neighborhood with access to your favorite outdoor activities, like golf or water sports on Lake Chesdin.

Peaceful Surroundings

At Chesdin Landing, our community offers spacious one-acre homesites where you or a custom builder can create the retreat you’ve always imagined. We also have a selection of resale homes and gorgeous waterfront and golf course lots. Our private generously-sized lots allow you to enjoy the serene feeling of seclusion without truly being away from it all. We are always happy to give tours of our properties and facilities on the shores of beautiful Lake Chesdin, where you can picture yourself fishing, boating, swimming, and simply relaxing on the shore.


If you have kids or plan to go back to school in Chesterfield, the quality of schools in specific areas is important. College attendance, graduation rates, whether the neighborhood has charter or private schools, and after-school activities, are key. If your kids take the bus to school, check whether routes go to the neighborhood you’re thinking of moving to.

Prices of Homes in the Area

Carefully consider a neighborhood’s home prices. Depending on your desires for a home, it could make sense to look at lot prices. That way, you can build your home in a prime location. It takes longer to build a house, but you may feel it’s worth it if it means you don’t have to compromise on the look and feel of your home.
