Does Location Really Matter?

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Sutton Group Summit

You find a beautiful home available on the market, but you’re not so sure about the location. Does it really matter all that much? Yes, it does. That’s why you’ll often hear REALTORS® say, “Location, location, location.”

The location of a home you’re considering buying will affect you in two ways.

First, it will affect the property’s future resale value, especially if the neighbourhood is becoming less desirable.

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 theatre — you probably won’t enjoy living there.

A good REALTOR® will help you find the right home in the best location for you.

Lifestyle ! Yes, that is so accurate ! I ask my clients when they begin their home search what they like to do on their free time.... for lifestyle ... 

I then let them now how to access those activities from their new home location.

Good morning Marina,

One of the many factors that will in the long run effect price.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Location is beginning to also become a factor in reverse,  With a new urban migration taking center stage in some areas, those formerly "not the best" locations and getting a make over and new life.  So while I would never suggest that locations is not an important factor, it seems that the objective of the buyer may trump locations in some cases.
