You should investigate your potential home’s location. This is one of the most important gauges of a home’s value, and it also plays a role in commute and lifestyle decisions.

Location also determines the neighborhood options afforded to you, along with local amenities and area accessibility.

More tips

Consider alternatives to a single-family home

Condominiums and townhomes can offer many benefits. Condos and townhomes are great alternative housing options if smaller square footage is smaller is something that falls within your home criteria.

Choose a local Realtor

Good local Realtors know the inner workings of the area. They understand property values as it relates to location and home amenities, and they’re also privy to off-market listings.
