And getting it right is crucial. For example, new homeowner, Cindy and Jeff, bought their 2-bedroom side split because it was a great price, even though the location—near the cross-country rail tracks—wasn’t ideal. “We had no choice financially,” said Jeff. “And, we’ve gotten used to the rumbling of the trains. It’s not as bad as you’d think.” Financial considerations are very real and a new homeowner doesn’t want to be saddled with a mortgage that’s beyond his or her means. However, the National Real Estate Association reminds buyers to try and get the location they want. Buyer fatigue can make a homeowner take what they believe is “good enough.” But a few years later, they may wish that they’d spent $10K or $20K more and got the location of their dreams.
