When you’re searching for a place to live if you have kids, or even if you’re planning on having kids in the future, the neighborhood you choose is of concern. When you’re single, it’s easy to fill your desire for the city. You live near bars, clubs, conveniences, and more. Once you start thinking with a family in mind, your ideas shift.
So, if you’re looking for a neighborhood with children in mind, where do you start? Read on to discover the top priorities of a kid-friendly property search.
Most parents put a lot of consideration into where their children will go to school. Many resources allow you to research different school districts. You can also visit schools in person, or talk to other parents and see their opinion of the local schools for specific neighborhoods.
The Safety Of The Area
Whether you have kids or not, you want to know that the area you’re going to live in is safe. Before you select a neighborhood to live in, you’ll want to research the crime rates in the area. You might assume that individual cities and towns have better crime rates than others, but you may be surprised. Ask your local real estate agent for more information on local crime rates and how to research them.
Sense Of Community
If you are moving with kids or planning on having a family anytime soon, you’ll want to have a supportive community surrounding you. Having a community means that there are other families around with children. This way, it will be easier for you to build a network of other moms who are in the same stage as you. Some things to consider are:
Are there sidewalks in the neighborhood?
Is there a lot of traffic in the area?
Are there places for kids to play nearby?
Do you see families out for a walk together?
Answering these questions will give you an idea of how family-friendly your neighborhood will be. Sidewalks make the area accessible for kids to go and hang out with their friends safely. Parks and playground are not only a great place to play for kids but a great place to meet other parents. If a neighborhood has the things that you want for your family, chances are, many other families in the area feel the same way.
Choosing a neighborhood can be difficult, but with a little research and groundwork, you’ll be able to select an excellent place for your family to live.

Better watch out: There are Grinches on the prowl this holiday season, snatching up packages left on doorsteps and preying on homeowners’ online shopping addictions. Doorstep package thefts have been on the rise: Nearly one-third of Americans—or 26.1 million—report having a package stolen from their front porch or doorstep, according to a new report from InsuranceQuotes.com.

In response, more homeowners are getting creative to catch these package thieves—and they're using smart-home tech to do it. Video doorbells can capture video and audio as thieves try to sneak off with packages left on a homeowners’ doorsteps. For example, Google’s Nest Hello video doorbell, Ring, and other smart doorbells are catching more porch pirates in action.
“Having a visual deterrent like a video doorbell can show there’s security at a house and may make a porch pirate think twice,” says Erick Low, product manager who oversees Google’s Nest Cam Outdoor and Nest Hello. Nest Cam and Nest Hello allow homeowners to keep an eye on their front door through a video camera embedded within the doorbell or video cameras strategically located outside. The devices can alert homeowners on their smartphone when the doorbell has been pressed or any motion has been detected on a front stoop. Homeowners can speak to visitors remotely through the smartphone app or listen in secret as they watch someone at their front door. Video doorbell systems from Nest and Ring, for example, also offer continuous monitoring features that record footage 24/7 for playback at any time. The Nest doorbell also has an added facial recognition feature and can alert you to a familiar or an unfamiliar face at your doorstep.
Fifty-seven percent of consumers who have been victimized by porch pirate thieves or vandals say they’ve responded by upping their security measures at home, like adding motion detectors on lights, security systems, automatic timer on lights, video doorbells, and lockboxes for any packages that are left at their doorstep, according to the InsuranceQuotes.com survey.
Smart-home tech is increasingly being adopted by consumers, and security has been one area cited for a big driver of its growth. A survey by August Home, a company that makes smart door locks, found that 63 percent of consumers cite home security as the biggest motivation to buying a smart-home device. Numerous smart-home devices are aimed at beefing up a home’s security, from cameras that can detect break-ins to safety devices that can detect smoke, fire, carbon monoxide, and moisture levels.
