While many important details must be considered in choosing your first home – style, size, price, location – one thing is certain: if you will be moving again in a few years, be sure you buy with selling in mind. Chances are, the items that make your new home a comfortable fit for you will also attract buyers later on.
Some special considerations for the first-time homeowner who has resale in mind:
Watch for growth potential
Look for an established neighborhood that will be enhanced by future growth but not inconvenienced by it.
Look out for resale value
Seek a prime neighborhood where homes sell well in any market.
Check out location
Consider availability of all aspects of transportation; even those you may not use.
Research Area Schools
Check for quality public schools, whether or not you have school-age children.
Go for the green
Look carefully at the lot for trees and greenery to buffer winter winds or summer heat.
Make room for visitors
See if ample guest parking is available for you and your neighbors.
Ponder privacy issues
Consider how much privacy the home and lot provide.
Drive the commute before you buy
Check morning and afternoon drive time to work, schools, shopping, churches.
