Every once in awhile, Alain Pinel, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of Prestigio International writes on Intero’s “Reserve”. His recent article addressed the most important factors buyers look for in a home. He talked about location, quality and price. Which do you find most important in your home search? I’m guessing your answer is location. Am I right? Alain makes a point that “given the choice, you want the best built home, at the best price and in the best location.” However, he says “the problem is that the ideal package does not exist.” I think this is a hard thing for buyers to grasp. You work so hard to be able to save up enough to buy a home and want it to be perfect, but in reality the “perfect” home may mean thousands or even several hundred thousand over your budget. Sometimes buyers need to identify what tradeoffs they are willing to compromise. Personally, my husband and I have always gone for location. We have found with a little elbow grease (or a lot) and patience, a home can be transformed into whatever you desire. For the complete article with Alain’s expert opinion, check out the link below.
