When looking at a new home it is important to take the community into consideration. This community checklist helps you plan ahead while providing important features to consider when moving to a new town or community.
During you new home consideration, fill in the community checklist by putting a check mark beside the chosen feature. It takes into consideration amenities, distance to work, education facilities, sports, and much more.
