Are you starting your hunt for a new home in the Wilmington area? One of the major decisions you’ll need to make is where you decide to buy. From Downtown Wilmington to Leland to Hampstead, our city is filled with warm, welcoming communities that will make for a great new home. In today’s blog post we’ll discuss the importance of location and how you can decide where to buy your piece of Wilmington real estate.
Your Location Will Impact Your Quality of Life
Buying a new home is the perfect opportunity to improve your quality of life, and your location will play a major role in this. For example, where will you be working in the next few years? If your career situation is stable, moving closer to your workplace means less time spent commuting and more time for enjoying your life outside of work. Perhaps you’re retiring to the Wilmington area and you plan on spending your days working on your golf game, in which case a home in an area like Landfall or Porters Neck Plantation will be perfect as you’ll have immediate access to top-quality courses. Spend some time considering exactly what is important to you and your family and factor that into your choice of local community.
Your Location is Important to Your Family
Speaking of family, if you have a family or are planning on having children in the near future this will certainly impact the location that you decide on. You’ll want to spend some time assessing local schools to ensure that you have a home within walking distance to quality education. You’ll may also want to consider buying in a quieter neighborhood with less traffic and more park space so your children can safely play outside and enjoy the local environment. Although Wilmington is a city, many of our communities have retained that small-town feel and are very family-friendly.
Your Location Will Factor in to Your Resale Value
Unless you’re certain that you’ll be living in your new home for at least a couple of decades you’ll also want to factor in how the location you choose will impact your home’s resale value. Buying in a popular or desirable community means that your home equity will continue to increase, allowing you to see a return on your investment when you sell later on. Of course, it’s impossible to predict the future but understanding that the right location for a home you may sell in five years is different than that of a home you may sell in twenty years is important.
