Location — It Matters
It is often said that there are only three things to consider when buying property: location, location, and location. Property should be an investment that will continue to grow in value in the years to come. Always research an area thoroughly and consider the following when purchasing property:
• Always look at the surrounding areas. What sort of infrastructure exists? How good or bad is the security of the area?
• Try to purchase property in a good school district. This advice applies even if you don't have school-age children. When it is time to sell, strong school districts are often a top priority for many home buyers, thus helping to boost property values.
• Ensure that you are comfortable with the commute to work, including the distance and time that you will spend on the road each day.
• Always be on the lookout for facilities that can create unwanted noise or disturbances in the area.
