For you to be safe and comfortable, the neighborhood of your new home should suit your life pattern and your mood. Therefore, think carefully when selecting your neighborhood.

A factory or a railway terminal may not be a good neighbor, not to mention a commercial area. Therefore when selecting a suitable land for residential purposes try to avoid industrial areas, commercial areas etc.

In some urban residential areas security is a major issue, as all the house owners are working in the daytime. In such a situation you may have to take precautions. You may even have to arrange your own security system. Get to know all these before you buy your new plot of land.
