5 Home Buying Tips
When buying a home there are many factors to consider. We have a few Buying Tips that are important in our eyes. Location, location, location as well as community features, Covenants/Conditions & Restrictions, Commute and timing.
Location, Location, Location –
When purchasing a new home where the home is located matters. Homebuyers want to be close to major highways, shopping and school systems.
Forest Ridge Master Planned Community, in Broken Arrow, OK is Well Within Your Reach. Close to the turnpike and other major thoroughfares, easy access to shopping and adjacent to an elementary & middle school that are part of the public school system. There are various private school options too.
Community Features –
As a homebuyer research, what the neighborhood/community has to offer. Such as family activities, recreational amenities, events or dining.
The features, which sets Forest Ridge apart from other developments, are the amenities. A community that offers a diversity of neighborhoods and a variety of homes for a total lifestyle opportunity that compares to resort style living.
Forest Ridge Amenities Include:
- Catch & Release Fishing Lakes
- Miles of Trail System for walking, jogging and biking
- Community Parks
- Swim & Tennis Center

Covenants/Conditions & Restrictions –
Purchasing a home is a very important decision. Therefore, make sure you protect your investment with upkeep and maintenance of the community.
The Forest Ridge Homeowners Association requires that each resident pay annual dues to support the maintenance of common areas, nature trails, parks, and other amenities.
All across the country, people spend too much time in their vehicles commuting back and forth to work. You have probably seen news stories of larger population cities like Washington D.C., Atlanta or even Houston where a person leaves for work at 4 a.m. only to return to their families at 8 p.m. because of traffic. That does not sound desirable.
If you lived at Forest Ridge in Broken Arrow, your commute to downtown is only 20 minutes. So why spend so much time in the car when you can come home to your oasis away from work? Let Forest Ridge be your resort.
The purchase of a home often is all about timing. Of course being in the right place at the right time is always a plus. Whether is it a new construction recently finished or a home that just went on the market let that timing be in your favor.
When looking for a home, most people want more than a house that is attractive and functions well. You need an entire community that serves your needs. One solution is to house hunt in master-planned communities.

Here are some of the things we’ve seen the most successful meeting planners do to keep their employees engaged throughout the entirety of their meetings.
