Young folks just beginning their careers and possibly living on their own for the first time typically move into apartments. After some time, they may move to a bigger apartment or to a condo that has more square feet than their apartment. Many couples begin married life in an apartment or condo.
Then life changes. The couple may plan to have children — they need more space. An apartment tenant wants to own a dog — he needs a yard and sidewalks. Young people who are well on their way to successful careers may be ready to invest their money into property. These are a few of the reasons that cause people to move from a multifamily dwelling into a single-family home.
Once someone makes the choice to move from an apartment or condo to a house, how does he or she determine where this home should be? Buying a house is the largest investment most people will ever make, so careful consideration of the location is of the utmost importance. What should you look for when deciding where to live?
