How to chose the location when buying a home

When asking multiple sellers who have owned their homes for many years what was the best part of owning this house? One common tread kept popping up and it was the location. If it hadn't been for the choice of schools and the lower crime rates the value of the property might have not increased as so. Not only that but also had improved the quality of life in that they felt a sense that their children were safe in the neighborhood. "Location, location, location" is a common mantra in real estate but in today's market when there are so many buyers competing for each property buyers subpar to their normal criteria in order to take advantage of the low interest rates. Depending on your personal needs and preferences, you may want a home that is private and quiet or you might want to be right in the center of the hussle and bussle to save time. And that's OK. You don't want to forget about the fact that you and your loved ones will be LIVING in the home until you are ready to move on. KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • City is key to selecting valuable real estate.

  • Consider the stores and nearest freeway access points of a neighborhood as well as future plans for development.

  • Consider noise of the neighborhood

  • Lot size.

  • The House Itself The Bottom Line Make sure when purchasing your home you aren't selecting a street or neighborhood that grabs your attention for small details that fit you personally; but also take a look at the bigger picture. In the future who do you see moving into the area? This will help ensure you are protecting your financial future when it comes to selling.
