Finding the perfect place to live may seem like a pipe dream to some, but at Coldwell Banker Preferred, Realtors® in Bakersfield, we’ve helped many people find the ideal home. When it comes to looking at homes for sale and deciding what you want, it can be easy to fall into the rut of asking, “How many bedrooms does it have?” or, “When was it built?” While these are viable questions, it’s also important to think about where you want to live. With so many options available, you may have trouble deciding, but hopefully this post will provide some help and insight into choosing the right location.

In a Quiet Neighborhood

Perhaps you’ve reached retirement age and you’re ready to live somewhere quiet and somewhat isolated. You’ve spent the last few decades living closer to the city center, and you enjoyed the hustle and bustle at the time, but now you’re ready to retreat and savor your golden years.

Quiet neighborhoods can range in size and location, and our Realtors® can help you narrow down your choices. You may want to be far enough away from major roads and highways so that you don’t have traffic noise, and you might want to distance yourself from shopping centers and schools so that you don’t have people driving by your house all the time. If that’s the case, then contact us today!

Near to Nightlife

If you’re still in your 20s or 30s, then your life may revolve around work and your social life. You may not be married yet, and you want to get out and meet people who are the same age and who share your same interests. Living near to the local nightlife can make it easier to frequent your favorite bars and restaurants, as well as spots that feature live music and other performances. While you’re ready to buy your first home, you don’t want to be so far from what’s going on that you never feel like going out on a Friday or Saturday night.

If the hustle and bustle of downtown Bakersfield is more your speed, then we’d love to help you find a house that’s within a suitable distance. Give us a call today to see what properties we have available!

Close to Great Schools

For families with children, one of the primary factors when looking for a new home is that it must be close to great schools. Parents want their kids to get a good education, and it can be beneficial to look up different school districts, ratings, and other info before you begin attending open houses and looking at properties.

If great schools are at the top of your list, then we’ll make sure it’s at the top of ours when providing you with a list of homes. You don’t want to have to drive a long way to drop the kids off each morning and pick them up in the afternoon, and if you have an elementary and middle school nearby, then you can feel comfortable having them walk to school every day, or take a short bus ride.
