So you have been surfing the internet for a home or condo and find one that has everything you want and for a fantastic price! So why is it so cheap? Since it is all about location, you need to do some serious investigation. Finding the perfect placein the wrong neighborhood can end up being a very expensive mistake!
Any one can search the Real Estate websites and find a home that suits specific criteria like price and number of bedrooms. But there are other important things that you need to consider as part of the buying process which are never found on any listing. What you are really buying is a neighbourhood and therefore you need to ensure that this is the right neighborhood for you and your family.
Realtors® know neighborhoods! Here are things that you need to consider when choosing a neighbourhood:
Can I afford to purchase suitable housing in the area?
How will I get to work from this location?
How long will it take to get to work?
Are there schools nearby?
How do the schools measure up?
Is it convenient to shopping centres?
Are there recreational facilities nearby?
Will it suit my/our lifestyle?
Will my purchase suit my needs for at least 5 years.
Are local values growing or in decline?
