Choosing a Location for Your New Home

Choosing a Location for Your New Home
Looking for the right location for your new home? See what Ameri-Star Homes has to offer.

When buying a new home, the location really is what it’s all about. The house may require renovations over time because the needs of your family may change.  But your location is forever. Where you decide to live has a big impact on how you enjoy community, family, and nature. Here are a few aspects of location to consider for your custom home.


Geography can play a major role in your home satisfaction. For example, you might find yourself more attuned to the mountains or the water, the mainland or the shore. Maryland is considered a miniature America, containing the shore, the midlands, and the mountains to the west. Because it is a relatively small state, the mountains and the shore are both within easy reach. No matter where you are in Maryland, though, there is always beauty.

Urban or Rural?

You will also want to consider how rural or urban you would prefer your neighborhood to be. It is true that some areas will become more populated over time, and communities are more compact here than other states, but there is still a spacious plot of land for homeowners here as well. Marylanders can find plenty of fine urban, suburban, and semi-rural properties here.


Every community is unique; what are you looking for the most in a community? Some neighborhoods are great for growing families, and some for retired folks. Some have a block party culture, while others are more to themselves. See what local events are in your area and what you might expect.


Amenities include shopping, schools, parks and recreation and much more. If you’re looking for top-rated public schools, Severna Park High School has been among the highest rated in Anne Arundel County. Severna Park also has a number of private schools in and around the area. Besides where your children go to school, you’ll also want to keep your commute time to a minimum. Severna Park is one of many cities that have direct access to Baltimore City, Annapolis, and Washington, D.C.
