Choosing a place to call home most often comes down to lifestyle. Sure you may fall in love with a fantastic remodeled home, however if you cannot see yourself living in the neighborhood...then it doesn't matter what the home looks like or has to offer on the inside. I've seen happen a lot in the past few years. Home buyers shopping Online, are totally convinced the house they have fallen in love with is THE ONE! Only to discover when we go out to look at it, and they say " I love the inside...but, I'm not crazy about the drive to the house, or where it is located in relation to their work or the highway etc...
Only you know for sure what you need, want and desire in a neighborhood and a home. They both go hand in hand. A good real estate agent can help guide you and coach you and help you find the right home for you.
