Barrington homes and the search for your dream property. The best piece of advice I can give you before you start is to choose your neighborhood first. Everyone has heard the rule of real estate that it's location, location, location over anything else, and when it comes to probably the largest investment of your life it's wise not to ignore it.
In some areas of the suburbs that location factor might be neighborhoods. Here in the Barrington area it's more likely to be which Barrington village. With just a few exceptions our neighboorhoods are very small and not very relevant to the search. Those exceptions would be Lake Barrington Shores of Lake Barrington homes, Wynstone of North Barrington homes, and Inverness on The Pond, all are gated communities with 400 homes or more and are chosen for their lifestyles as well.
There are many smaller neighborhoods, like Chippendale offering Barrington homes close to the village in a named neighborhood. Typically smaller neighborhoods do have very similar homes. Many buyers will select several neighborhoods like this with similarities but in the same village.
Before picking your location it's a wise buyer that doesn't guess the budget but finds out the budget. There is nothing worse than being disappointed when you visit your choice of Barrington homes and find a house that's wonderful but out of your price range. Now that's established we can explore the villages that you like the best. Those can be further refined by adding other needs on your list, like school district, in town or out, small acreage, large acreage and so on.
Once your ideal location has been established, then you can start looking at Barrington homes and further adding your refinements. Always keep in mind you might not find what you are looking for in the preferred area, and keeping a couple of second choice neighborhoods or villages will open up the choices. It's not uncommon for buyers to consider the three similar neighborhoods of Kildeer, Hawthorn Woods and Long Grove alongside the Barrington villages.
