House hunting can be trying, especially if you’re searching in the hot, hot, hot North Texas housing market. In and around Dallas, home buyers are falling over each other trying to get to new and older homes – so why not make it a little easier on yourself by looking at RE/MAX homes for sale in Flower Mound TX. Why Flower Mound? Flower Mound is simply one of the most liveable cities in Texas and you can be pretty sure that most any area or neighborhood in the city will be right for you and your family. In fact, RE/MAX homes for sale in Flower Mound TX will fit the bill when it comes to four of the most important things you need to consider when choosing a location for your home:
1 – Great Schools
Whether you have children or not, great schools and a great school district should be at the top of your list when you’re house hunting. If you have children, great schools ensure that your children will get a great education, which will benefit them throughout their lives. If you don’t have children, buying a house in a great school district means you’ll have a home that will retain its value, and even increase in value, simply because it’s in an area with excellent schools.
2 – Commuting Times
You also have to take into consideration the amount of time you’re going to spend in the car, going to and from work, when you look for a new home. When you’ve narrowed down your search, take a drive during rush hour from the home you like to your job to see just what the actual commute will be like. If you plan on using public transportation, make sure you’ll have quick access to it from your new house. When you find your dream home, you may think that any commute will be worth it; but be realistic about how much time you want to spend going back and forth.
3 – Amenities
Will your new home be close to restaurants, shopping, theaters or other amenities that are important to you and your family? Is it important to have a community pool or tennis courts? Ask your realtor what’s available and take a drive around the area – or a walk – to see if you’ll have an easy time getting to things you want to do.
4 – Resale Value
While you might be willing to buy a fixer upper in an area that’s up-and-coming, remember that selling it if you should decide to move in five or ten years may be difficult, especially if the up-and-coming part doesn’t up-and-come fast enough. Ask your realtor if the home values in the areas where you’re looking are staying steady over the years. You may not want to think about selling the house you’re thinking about buying, but it’s a real concern if there’s even a chance you’ll have to relocate for any reason.
Flower Mound will check off all of your boxes because it’s in the highly-rated Lewisville ISD, it’s a short commute time to Dallas and DFW airport, none of its neighborhoods are far away from shopping and other amenities and, according to Neighborhoodscout.com, home values in the city have increased in value an average of 6.75 percent per year since 1990.
