When you are purchasing a home for your personal use, you should obviously look for a home that you love and one that has a layout and location that works for you and your family.
However, always keep in mind that you might want to sell it at some point in the future. Maybe you love old homes with charm and quirky character, but does the market prefer a more modern open floor plan? Or maybe you love an edgy contemporary, but Colonials are what most people want in your town. For example, we have noticed that barn style homes with high ceilings sell well in the Salisbury, CT area and surrounding towns
Talk to your realtor about what is popular in your area. Are you buying in a price range that is easy to re-sell? Building something that is too specific for your personal needs —say a huge house that only has two bedrooms—can make it difficult for future resale. Call us at Best & Cavallaro Real Estate if you would like to explore this topic more thoroughly.
