Spring is a peak season for the real estate market, and for prospective homebuyers, the search for the right house can be overwhelming – particularly when deciding whether the surrounding neighborhood is the right fit.
For this issue, we’re highlighting four of the most in-demand Over the Mountain neighborhoods – one each from Homewood, Vestavia Hills, Mountain Brook and Hoover – and exploring what those neighborhoods have to offer residents.
We chose to look at Edgewood, Crestline Village, Cahaba Heights and Green Valley, because they offer a variety of retail and dining options that are appealing for both young families and empty-nesters looking for a change.
All four neighborhoods are also highly walkable, with parks, restaurants and shops easily reached on foot. There are significant differences among them. But all four neighborhoods are ideal for buyers looking to blend the convenience of living in a city with small-town charm.
