Welcome back to the Hamilton Realty Group blog.

Getting a home in the right shape and look is one thing, but there is more to a home than that. You are quite possibly familiar with the old saying about real estate – location, location, location. That is true no matter where you live or where you are planning to live. If you have a family, you want to be near the best schools. If you are single, you will want to live close to modern luxuries. Retirees and empty nesters may want to live near the best hospitals and everyday conveniences.

This is where a hometown Broker like Hamilton Realty Group is your friend. We have the understanding and skills to match a home buyer to a seller and all within the parameters that you’re looking for in a home.

The Internet has vastly changed everything about home buying and selling. Both can quickly check the Internet to find out what is and what is not moving, where the best schools and shopping are and so much more.

It is common to think that a home will sell based on the neighborhood. This is somewhat correct. A homes potential sale value is based more on the prices of the homes that have recently sold in the same neighborhood.

A good realtor will take this into account, but it is not the only factor that will come into play. Whether or not a realtor has access to the home, the time frame of movement of sales and the availability are all important aspects that need to be considered when selling or buying. The market can sway in either one’s favor, so it is important to work with a local realtor whether you’re buying or selling.
