Look at the property, the neighborhood, and the street.
If you have problems sleeping and require quiet, and more quiet, then don't buy a house on a busy street or near night clubs.
If you need public transportation to get to work, look for a home located near buses, or trains.
If you like trees, look in a neighborhood that has trees. But be prepared to clean up the leaves and do tree maintenance.
Stop, look, and listen to the property you are buying. If it makes you feel good then you will be happy there...without regrets.
