Visiting a potential home at strategic times can tell a different story
Sim Ziff is Your San Diego County Expert
So you're house shopping and you've found a property that you really like. I recommend that you visit that same home at various times throughout the day and night to ensure that there are no unexpected surprises.
8 A.M. is a good starting point because that is rush hour. Time your commute or your drive or walk to public transportation access.
Mid Morning will give you a good idea of how quiet (or otherwise) your neighborhood is during the day.
3 P.M. or perhaps a little earlier should clue you in on school traffic and possible noise, depending on school proximity.
5:30 P.M. for a test of your commute home from work. With the advent of user-driven navigation apps such as Waze, it's always a possibility that an overflow of traffic may be directed through your neighborhood. That's a good thing to know.
Weekend evenings to be sure that one of your neighbors isn't a party King or Queen, unless that's your cup of tea. Is there ample street lighting and do you feel safe?
