Test Drive Your Potential New Home First | Wilmington NC real estate


You found a home that you think you would like to live in.  The neighborhood looks like the neighborhood that you would like to live in.  The next thing you need to do is literally before you buy your first home, drive from and to the new address from your work during morning and evening drive times. Are there alternate routes? How long does it take to get to work? Schools? Supermarket? Convenience stores? Is parking adequate on street, off street or in a garage? Will the morning or evening sun be a headache? Note your location 15 minutes and 30 minutes from your first home. Now use that distance on a map as a radius to get a sense of your circle of community. Many of us spend a lot of time in our cars. Knowing how much time can help you decide if a new home is right for you. You want to make the right decision for all the right reasons.  Finding out after the sale that you do not like the commute will take away part of the new found happiness of buying your new home.  In the Wilmington NC real estate market it is suggested that you go through this exercise before you put in a contract on a home.  To learn more buying tips see my Wilmington NC newsletter for buyers and sellers here.
