Finding the Right Neighborhood for Your Family

Western Wisconsin Offers Many Excellent Communities for New Home Buyers

While finding the ideal home is the first important step in creating a wonderful living environment for your family, you also want to choose the right neighborhood. This is a huge key, and even the City of Eau Claire website agrees, saying, “Neighborhoods are the basic building blocks of the community, and their health and vitality are essential to the future…”

We are surely biased, but there are many great places to live in the Chippewa Valley. There are abundant resources and attractions, plus a neighborly mindset that goes a long way towards creating a sense of community. So, what are some of the other specifics you should think about?

There are some basic things to keep in mind:

  • The Schools: With more than two dozen schools in the Eau Claire district alone (including public and private), there are many factors you want to consider as you choose your neighborhood. For example, are you interested in a Montessori school? Close to a elementary school?
  • Amenities: The entire Chippewa Valley and Western Wisconsin region is full of attractions, museums, parks, and recreational options. You are likely to have favorites, or places you will visit most often, and you can plan for that in your home-buying strategy.
  • Planned or private? A planned community is designed to provide value, security, and amenities that happen by chance elsewhere. If you are considering a new custom home, R.
