Shopping For Your Home… Location, Location, Location.

July 14, 2015

When buying your next home what is the one thing you hear the most? Location, Location, Location! “What does that mean?” I can help you to better understand the real estate term location…

There are several factors that come into play when you are trying to understand location, location,location. One being  your living life style, then of course the area, and another important factor is the timing of buying your home.


I feel that location equals amenities based off of your lifestyle. For example if you have young children many people buy their home based off of a certain school district. Or maybe you want a certain commute time to and from work. You also have to understand the area of the home that you are looking to buy in. The area is also a big factor when it comes to the resale of your home and the equity you can gain. To better understand the area of a community look at the amenities nearby. For example shopping centers, grocery stores, parks, entertainment, and expressways. A home that backs up to a highway will be less desirable to a home that backs up to a wooded lot.

If you can buy a home when the time is right this can be a huge financial gain for you! Look into a location where development is going on. Find out what they’re building and look at the area that they are developing. Ask yourself would you live here and why? This can be a great opportunity for you to buy a home and gain thousands of dollars in equity in a short period of time.

Before you go out shopping for you next home start with developing a property wish list. Your wish list should be very detailed not just the wants you are looking for with in your home but in the community as well.

Once you have found the home that you are excited to write an offer on; I recommend you take the time and do your research within the neighborhood. Check out the neighborhood at different days and times. So you can see the atmosphere of the community. The house maybe great as well as the neighboring homes; but you are viewing the home on a weekday during work hours… No was is around; of course the area looks great!
