Ride Your Bike To See Houses, Neighborhoods, Areas in Washington, DC and Montgomery County, MD

Couple on bikes outdoors smilingThis month we are celebrating the two (and three) wheeler. Have you ever considered that a bicycle is the perfect way to take a look at a neighborhood? Jump on your bike and ride around neighborhoods in which you are considering a new home purchase. A bike’s pace is perfect: slower than a car, faster than your feet.

While riding, determine if the neighborhood is the right one for you by asking yourself these questions:

  • Are you are close enough to or TOO close to amenities?
  • Is the neighborhood filled with walkers, runners, cyclists (will there be groups with whom to exercise if we move here)?
  • Will I be able to cycle to work/or public transportation?
  • Is this neighborhood right for my family and our specific lifestyle?
  • Am I close to bike paths i.e. The Capital Crescent Trail in Bethesda MD?

If you are an active person and want to find a neighborhood with active neighbors in Washington DC or Montgomery County’s Chevy Chase, Bethesda, Rockville or Potomac, MD, riding your bicycle around a neighborhood and area is a perfect way to discover your next home!!!
