LOCATION DOES MATTER!
The old saying, “location, location, location” is more like a mantra when it comes to real estate. Buy in the wrong one and you could be setting yourself up for financial ruin or at least an unhappy experience.
You can change your home, adding, updating, and renovating down to the last square foot. What you cannot change is the location. Add in an inherent desire to build equity when you buy a home, and it’s not surprising that real estate experts often recommend buying not only in the best location you can afford, but sometimes even buying the worst house in the best neighborhood instead of the other way around.
Buying in a neighborhood that seems to offer some cushion when it comes to values makes sense. But what if you fall in love with a house that’s not in your preferred neighborhood? The opportunity to buy a more affordable home can tempt people to take a chance on an “iffy” location. But the potential for losing money on a home that may not ever appreciate because of the neighborhood is only the beginning. Buying into an area that has higher crime can be dangerous to more than your finances.
So, here are a few ways to investigate the neighborhood before making a purchase:
Having a local realtor who knows the area and communities well can make sure you are getting the best investment for your money, and he/she can do all the investigating for you at no cost!
