Buying a Phoenix Home - Location! Location! Location!

 

 

You find the perfect home available on the Phoenix AZ market, but you’re not so sure about the location. Does location really matter all that much? Yes, it does. That’s why you’ll often hear an experts say, Location! Location! Location!

 

Buying a Phoenix Home - Location is Important

 

The location of  a Phoenix Metro  home you’re considering buying will affect you in the following ways and possibly more. It's a good idea to think this important factor through!

 

First, it can affect the property’s future resale value. I often suggest that clients purchase the best possible home in a great location for this reason specifically. Some clients may get caught up in the 'moment' and fall in love with the floor plan, updated kitchen, stainless appliances or other amenities but the home is not in their preferred area.  That's when it's a good time to take a step back and consider your wants vs needs and what is your end goal.  Updated kitchen? Best location possible?  My job is to guide you in the home buying process and share my knowledge and experience I've gained over time. Your job is to make the final decision in which home to buy and enjoy your new home for years to come.

 

Second, it will affect your lifestyle. If the area doesn’t have the features you want — nearby schools and playgrounds, walking trails, proximity to activities that interest you, such as golf or fitness clubs — you probably won’t enjoy living there nearly as much.  It's also very important to consider driving time to your job.  If you're spending 1 1/2 to 2 hours or so getting back and forth to work that clearly will affect your lifestyle.  And if you've got kids in school it's pretty hard to manage their needs when you and/or your partner is so far from home during the work day. Just a few things to consider when purchasing your Phoenix area home.
