Jamaica Estates Homes for Sale: Making NYC Life Work for Your Family

Looking at Jamaica Estates homes for sale for yourself is one thing, but what if you’ve got a family in tow? If you’re new to urban life, that adds even more uncertainty to the process.

At Jamaica Estates Realty, we’re happy to help newcomers discover their niche in our neighborhood. Here are four top tips for finding your family a new home in Jamaica Estates:

  • Be willing to sacrifice space to save your budget.If you are a New York City novice, you might experience sticker shock as you look at Jamaica Estates homes for sale. The median list price for Jamaica Estates homes is currently $1.1 million, and you’ll likely pay more than this for a single-family home in our neighborhood.

    Before you run out of town, add some co-ops and condos to your must-see list. They tend to be more affordable and come with amenities that you won’t see in a single-family home.

  • Condense your belongings.Families tend to collect a lot of stuff. If you are looking at Jamaica Estates homes for sale, it’s time to purge. 8Even if you pay top dollar, your new home might still be short on storage space. Storage units are another option, but you’ll need to factor this cost into your budget.
  • Put on your walking shoes.New Yorkers walk everywhere, and children are no exception. If you are moving to Jamaica Estates with your kiddos, select a home within easy walking distance to as many amenities as possible. At a minimum, you’ll want to be close to schools, parks and public transportation.
  • You might need to get creative to make a home function for your family.If your children have never shared a room before, they might need to start. Remind them that it’s all in the name of a new adventure! You might also need to create multi-functional spaces, such as a home office that you can easily convert into sleeping quarters for overnight guests.
