To start a home search, beginning with a certain type can narrow results. For example, selecting a townhome moves towards different features than a garden style condominium, such as a townhomes potential for cozy levels and easier to maintain grounds than that of a Belle Haven property. On a different end of the spectrum is a luxury high rise which can boast scenic views of the surrounding landscapes.
Preferences can play a big role in finding a home that correctly aligns with the occupants lifestyle, such as that of a metro commuting corporate employee seeking a moderate Montebello dwelling versus that of a distant Springfield contracting handyman whom might prefer something with access to materials such as Lowe’s, and Home Depot and a quieter location like that of Newington.
Additionally, a type selection can make it easier to determine a neighborhood location. Some might prefer a townhome near a shopping center while others may weigh water accessibility as more desirable, such as a Potowmac Crossing condominium. Furthermore, I have seen that once the move has occurred, getting acquainted can be an endearing process of increasing familiarity with a region.
Some might love to settle into a Bucknell Cape-Cod, due to the detached ruggedness and the suburban appeal, while others might prefer the shopper friendly location of a Kingstowne townhome with easy entrance to 495.
