What are your priorities?
One of the most important criteria in the search for the ideal home is its location. Indeed, what is the interest of finding, for example, a very beautiful house, if its environment leaves more than to be desired? (Risk of flooding several times a year, very distant amenities, lack of public transportation, etc.).
What’s more, by choosing a well-located home, its appreciation will increase over time, should you wish to resell it. Add to that, it will be easier to get to and from work or school, have good schools nearby, stores within walking or driving distance, etc.
