State Wide Realty Debate:
Location Versus House?


An age old real estate question, which matters more the house or the location?

The House: There is no doubt you have a must have list for your new home such as number of bedrooms, square feet, etc. when you hit the market for that home you realize your budget does not allow for everything and a compromise has to be made. Is a renovation possible down the road to make it more like the home of your dreams? How about a different area of town? These are the questions buyers ask themselves constantly.

The Location: Do your homework, if the home you like is in an area that is known as troublesome you may have problems on the resale. The one thing you cannot change about the home once you have bought it is the location. The proximity to shops, restaurants, jobs, services all come with a higher price tag. Factor in commute times and accessibility when deciding to change your preferred location.

So What Matters Most?

In My Opinion: the location of the home matters more than the house does. As stated before you can fix a house to your liking but you cannot change the area the house is in.

good points! And of course location cannot be changed (although here in DC neighborhoods do improve drastically if you can wait out selling!)
