What IS Real Estate Consulting?

hands on computerChoosing where to buy a house or condo is a vitally important decision. Consulting with an expert who has experience and knowledge of local and regional communities can have a huge impact on ones success and outcome.

Once you’ve done your research on schools and community services as well as commuting options and you are ready to hone in on specific communities you want to engage with someone who has a broad array of  knowledge in real estate. One who has knowledge relative to construction, heating, ventilation, landscaping, grading and many related fields, along with a strong network of attorneys and finance people.

The entire legal process of purchasing or selling any piece of real estate can be difficult & stressful or it can be exciting and enjoyable. Working with one who possesses the skills I’ve mentioned has an amazing impact on what one actually gets in or out of their investment. Zillow can be a powerful tool for reviewing homes, agents and more. Check out my Zillow profile and let me know if I can help you!

5 Key Decision Factors in Choosing Where You Want to Live

While some people know exactly which city or town they want to live in, many people, in this transient society are open to more that one option. People who move to a new area are often focused on their commute to a new job.

Even if you have been in the same job and plan on being there for several more years, choosing a living location is an important decision and one that you want to thing a bit more long-term about.

Here are some of what I believe to be the most important factors to consider when you are looking to buy a property:

  1. Job location, proximity and stability
  2. Lifestyle needs, such as recreation, shopping, transportation
  3. Schools, if you have or plan on having children in a public school system.
  4. Friends in the area.
  5. Community you will be living in.

Early on, I suggest you look closely at each of these items and decide how much of a trade-off you are willing to make for each line item. For instance, would you prefer to get more “house/condo” for your money by living a little further from a major city, but have to commute more? Or, would you prefer to live in a city and be comfortable with less space?

Once you’ve started to get a real feel for your preferences, then you can actually begin scouting out the areas you are considering to get a better feel for your future neighborhood and homeWELCOME HOME!!

Thinking about a specific location? Concerned with your current commute and looking to move? I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to comment on this post or reach out to me directly.
