You know buyers are talking about getting the best price, they’re talking about getting the best looking house in terms of curb appeal and colors and updates. They’re talking about things like kitchens and baths, wanting stainless steel cabinets, and they want tile.
But I wonder if they’re forgetting about location. Private backyard, a big backyard, if the house is walking distance to the community pool to restaurants, to shops and things like that, to the local library, anything you might appreciate well I promise will be a component for resale too.
If you’re a buyer out there remember that putting some work into the house is going to be offset by the low interest rates you’re getting. But when you go to sell and it’s a seller’s market location is going to be a prime factor. If there are other houses that are similar to yours, where they are in the community or what neighborhood they’re in compared to others is going to make all the difference.
Just remember also that you’re buying a lifestyle and location is a big component of that. We want you to find a house that you’re going to live in, its going to be home for the next few years. And in doing that you got to think about location, location, location.
So just my food for thought for the day. Thank you very much.
