"Location, Location, Location" .....Why do we Realtors always hound you about “Location, Location, Location”? Well, the big answer is: "Location” will dictate if you'll be able to live the life you want. "Location" is not just about the resale value of your home. Granite counter tops are gorgeous, and that awesome master bath with double sinks, may help your marriage. However, those things are not going to shorten your commute, do a huge grocery store run/unpack all in an hour, nor get you to your children quickly if there is an emergency. Today, time is a rarity. We are all connected, to some kind of responsibility, 24 hours a day. So when the time comes, assess your budget and really take some time to think about how you want to live your life. Then you'll choose a location that provides things that have nothing to do with money. You'll buy a house that becomes your "perfect" HOME.
