If you’re hunting for a new home, it can be tempting to make an appointment to view as many as possible. However, it can be a better use of your time to narrow down the search beforehand and eliminate houses from your list based on some at-home research. That way you can use those extra hours for fine-tuning your home search and make sure you visit only the houses that will suit your every need.

In this article, we’ll teach you some ways to research a home, neighborhood and town before you take the time to visit.

Things to Research about Your Potential New Neighborhood

So you’ve found a listing that looks nice. Your next step should be to find out as much as possible about the area the home is in to make sure it suits your needs.

A good first step is to head over to Google Maps to find out which amenities are in the area. Schools, banks, grocery stores, restaurants, hospitals, parks… the list goes on. This is also a good time to map out how long it will take you on average to drive to work from this house and to see if it will lead you through any high-traffic areas that might affect your daily schedule.

You can also research other homes in the area to see if the house is selling higher or lower than average. This will give you a question to ask the real estate agent if you choose to reach out for further information.

Town statistics

Another step to take on Google for this home is to look up statistics for things like neighborhood crime, ratings for the school district, and the state of local businesses.

Is the area up-and-coming with healthy businesses and low crime? If so, it could be worth pursuing further.

If you’re planning on having children or already do, the quality of the education could be of importance to you.

Finally, get an idea of the local tax rates so you know how much you’ll owe the government for your property and excise taxes.

Researching the house itself

If you’re comfortable with the town and neighborhood, there’s still some research you can do online before you schedule a showing.

See if you can find out if the house belongs to a homeowner’s association. Look up their rules and fees to see if they’re agreeable to you and your family’s lifestyle and plans for the future.

Look up the sale history for the home. If there are several recent sales, this could be a sign of problems with the home or neighborhood. Similarly, if the price has increased or decreased dramatically more than nearby houses, consider asking the real estate agent why this is.

Finally, see if you can view the number of days the home has been on on the market, commonly abbreviated as “DOM.” This will give you some insight as to how desirable the home and neighborhood are.


Once you have all of the information at your disposal, you’ll be in a position to decide whether or not to schedule an appointment to view the home.

Wallpaper is making its comeback in 2020, much to the delight of today's edgiest designers. Fitting wallpaper, with its vintage appeal and old-time reputation, into modern spaces presents a unique challenge. But then again, today's wallpapers bear little resemblance to the paper our parents used in the '60s. Deceptively easy to apply, contemporary or even vintage wallpaper is an affordable way to turn a ho-hum space into a vibrant and interesting home.

Industrial

Industrial design comes and goes, and it's in again this year in a big way. You can cash in on the trend without breaking the bank by hanging wallpapers made to mimic building materials such as reclaimed wood or metal. A little goes a long way when papering a space to look like exposed brick. This is why we recommend sticking to a single accent wall in lieu of papering your whole room. 

Ombre

Ombre is a trend that's new to wallpaper, but it creates a clean, minimalist effect that pleases the eye. Gradients can be shades of gray or transitions between colors of light to dark. They can even feature misty, moody mountains as a background for simple furniture pieces to add depth and shading to your space. Wallpaper that graduates from light at the top to dark or patterned at the bottom makes low ceilings appear taller, too. 

Exotic

Tropical is trending in 2020. So are Asian-themed papers that boast botanical prints. Bold and busy, these wallpapers bring a bit of culture to your bedroom or bath, and they're a pleasing welcome when you return home after a long, hard day at the office. Busy prints like these are ideal for wide-open spaces that need color and pattern to bring them close and make them feel cohesive. 

Graphic

Graphic wallpapers, ones that feature bold lines and geometric shapes are rumored to be big in 2020. Wallpapers such as these bring order to a room, actually evoking the sensation of a calm and organized life. Graphic wallpapers pair well with the busier florals of couch cushions and with textures such as corduroy or chenille. 

Classic Blue

Wallpaper that features classic blue colors is expected to soar this year, after Pantone's decision to choose it as their official color of the year. Expect to see classic blue, and it's contrasting and complimentary colors of orange and purple, adorning America's walls and ceilings this year.

If you're considering adding an accent wall of wallpaper this year, you'll have multiple varieties from which to choose. Try bringing texture and pattern to your space by shopping by the roll this spring instead of in the paint department.
