When youíre searching for a place to live if you have kids, or even if youíre planning on having kids in the future, the neighborhood you choose is of concern. When youíre single, itís easy to fill your desire for the city. You live near bars, clubs, conveniences, and more. Once you start thinking with a family in mind, your ideas shift. 


So, if youíre looking for a neighborhood with children in mind, where do you start? Read on to discover the top priorities of a kid-friendly property search. 


The Schools


Most parents put a lot of consideration into where their children will go to school. Many resources allow you to research different school districts. You can also visit schools in person, or talk to other parents and see their opinion of the local schools for specific neighborhoods. 


The Safety Of The Area


Whether you have kids or not, you want to know that the area youíre going to live in is safe. Before you select a neighborhood to live in, youíll want to research the crime rates in the area. You might assume that individual cities and towns have better crime rates than others, but you may be surprised. Ask your local real estate agent for more information on local crime rates and how to research them. 


Sense Of Community


If you are moving with kids or planning on having a family anytime soon, youíll want to have a supportive community surrounding you. Having a community means that there are other families around with children. This way, it will be easier for you to build a network of other moms who are in the same stage as you. Some things to consider are:


Are there sidewalks in the neighborhood?

Is there a lot of traffic in the area?

Are there places for kids to play nearby? 

Do you see families out for a walk together?


Answering these questions will give you an idea of how family-friendly your neighborhood will be. Sidewalks make the area accessible for kids to go and hang out with their friends safely. Parks and playground are not only a great place to play for kids but a great place to meet other parents. If a neighborhood has the things that you want for your family, chances are, many other families in the area feel the same way. 


Choosing a neighborhood can be difficult, but with a little research and groundwork, youíll be able to select an excellent place for your family to live.

We all love a clean house. And your mother always seemed to make cleaning seem effortless. That magical sparkle and crisp, fresh scent evoked all that made her talent special. But now you have a home of your own and want to make your own magic. Here are the items you need to keep in your cleaning arsenal to tackle the tough spots and lighten the workload.

Floor vacuum

Nothing beats a great vacuum for floor care. You want a vacuum that can switch from carpet to hard floor at the flip of a switch. Getting one with attachments to clean sofas and mattresses, drapes, and blinds is a total win. If your vac has a removable dirt canister, all the better since emptying it is a snap.

Hand vacuum

There are some places a large vacuum, even with attachments, just canít go. In that case, itís always handy to have a cordless hand vac available. Theyíre also great for a quick cleanup of crumbs or spilled pet food too.

Brushes

A variety of brushes was your momís secret weapon. A specific brush for the toilet goes without saying, but a brush for the shower, and one to scrub dishes, and even one to scour out the sinks makes light of everyday chores.

Rubber gloves

Having vinyl work gloves on hand makes cleaning the really icky stuff simpler. Gloves protect your hands and nails from harsh chemicals, pet feces, and other messes. Also keep on hand a set dedicated to hand washing dishes, pots, and pans.

A good mop

Even though you can sweep or vacuum a hard surface such as wood or tile, sometimes you canít sweep up the grime that makes it look dull and faded. Thatís when you need to pull out the mop. Modern mops with on-board sprayers negate the need for a messy bucket, and one that the scrubbing pad removes to toss in the washer simplifies the cleanup. Some mops even have multiple pads for different floor surfaces so you can scrub a little harder on the tile under the babyís highchair, but gently wipe up spills from the wood in the living area.

A broom and dustpan

A good broom for indoors and a separate one for out of doors makes cleaning up leaves, sand, and other gritty items a snap. A broom should have stiffer but flexible bristles and a blunt-cut bottom. A slanted edge makes side-sweeping easier, while a straight edge works best if you sweep in front of yourself. Get a matching dustpan that stores right on the broom handle so that theyíre always together.

Keeping your house clean doesn't need to be a tough chore if you have the right tools on hand. Your home can always be in show-ready condition with some planning, some effort, and a good cleaning.
