Buying a Dream Home

Buying a home starts with selecting the location.

Buying a Dream Home

The journey to homeownership starts by understanding how much you can afford. One major thing to consider is your down payment and where you want to live. Once you have a list compiled on places that you want to life, do more in-depth research on each potential neighborhood. A good amount of information is available online, but the Internet doesn't have the full story. To get a true understanding of each neighborhood, give us a call and we will provide you more inforamtion.

  • Affordability
  • Taxes
  • Current employment and future opportunities
  • Commute and transportation
  • Real estate value
  • Crime rates
  • Proximity to family, friends, and activities
  • Climate
  • School districts
  • Culture
  • Town/city population size
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Proximity to airports

Be sure to choose the location that's right for you: Do you want to be downtown, in the suburbs, near work? Are schools an important factor? Do you want a community with plenty of outdoor recreational amenities; one with shops, restaurants and nightlife; or one with plenty of activities for children? Choosing the right location will ensure long-term happiness in your home.

Think about whether the house or the community matter more to you, and whether it’s worth it to make a longer commute in order to live in the suburbs, where your purchasing power could go a little further.
