Major Features in Choosing a Home Location4 March 2021
Written by: Ness Albito
The number of people who prefer to live in the provinces near the Metro is surging these days. More people aim to buy a much affordable house and lot than the ones offered in the city. Some even prefer less crowded places to reside in as this would be good for their physical and mental health, even after this pandemic.
We always hear that when choosing a home, you should prioritize "Location, location, location" since it is a common mantra in real estate. It may be a piece of good advice, but most people have no idea what it means.
Just like how first-time homebuyers are confused about the steps on buying an affordable house and lot, looking for the right location can be simple. Especially if you are geared-up on what are the major features to consider when choosing a home location. When buying a property, you should do it with a plan in mind, so this list might help you ease out your worries.
What are the major features in choosing the right home location?
1. Job Opportunities in the Vicinity
The first thing that a homebuyer should consider would be the availability of livelihood. Of course, everybody needs a source of income to live decently. You can research the buildings or offices that are available near the area and make sure that your previous job experiences will somehow match the positions they are offering. You could also check on the products or services that are most popular within the vicinity if you are aiming to establish your own business. Nowadays, when we can do the work from home setup, all we need to check is a stable internet connection and visualizing your workspace on your house model of choice.
The appeal of the neighborhood may mainly be a matter of personal choice. So the best way to say it: "Buy in a location where you can picture yourself living in that area as a community that is best for your family."
When I say picture out, it is not just the present that matters, but future ones as well. The upcoming developments in the area like new hospitals, schools, public transportation, and other infrastructure can dramatically change how you visualize living in that community.
3. Proximity to Daily Activities
Proximity to daily activities and basic needs will help you ensure your family's health and your life's sustainability in that area.
In terms of accessibility, another essential thing to consider is if the house and lot you are eyeing are near the major roads and highways. You will not have any problem going to and fro the city since you can easily access the major roads and highways going to the Metro. It will ease your travel and save you a lot of time on the road, whether it be through public transportation or via private vehicle.
4. Safety and Security of the Area
Talking about health and sustainability, the last but not the least thing to check is the area's safety and security. Does the community you would like to reside in have a 24/7 guardhouse that will ensure its security? Security and safety are vital, especially if you travel a lot or have little children who need to be cared for. It's easier to breathe when you know that your family is safe in the community they are living in.
Choosing a good home location is not entirely subjective. It should be based on the criteria that you set that will match both your lifestyle and needs.
