CONSIDERATIONS WHEN HOME SEARCHING

Location

Haven’t you heard that before “location, location, location. I have a million times. It still rings true today. If you have the right location your real estate will appreciate in value and attract others regardless of the economy

Lifestyle

Do you need a 2 bedroom house because you’re single? Do you need a 5 bedroom house for the kids? Do you like the hustle of the downtown area? Or do you like the quietness of the suburbs? Figure this out, and fast.

Neighbors

You pay for your neighbors (or you don’t). I have always enjoyed having decent people as my neighbors and so will you and your future tenants or buyers when you sell down the road

School district

Even if you don’t have children (today) you may in the future. If you don’t, the school system is a consideration for the same reason neighbors made this list. At some point, you will sell or rent out your homes. Families like having good school districts. Take this into consideration regardless of your lifestyle.
