How Important Is Location for a Home?

Location, location, location. Let Ameri-Star Homes help you find the best one.

They say “location, location, location,” but how important is location in real estate, really? Is it possible to compromise on location for a particular house or piece of land? While compromise is typically a part of any house hunt at some level, you can tick all the boxes with a customizable, new construction home. Here’s why getting a house in your target location is worth it.

The Neighborhood

The type of neighborhood you see yourself happy in is a matter of taste. Some neighborhoods differ in architectural style, landscaping, age, and size. You will be living your daily life in the same area and atmosphere for hopefully many years; it is worth living in an area that is beautiful and homey to you.

The Crime Rate

The crime rate highly affects an area’s desirability. A high crime rate can influence how safe people feel in their own homes, and if there is any place someone should feel safe, it is home. Aside from feeling, it also affects one’s statistical safety risk and the neighborhood’s appearance.

Potential for Appreciation

How likely is it that your neighborhood is going to improve in value over the years? How the area fares affects your home’s price. A good way to gauge this factor is to see how neighbors are taking care of their homes and the state of the local economy.

Local Schools

If you are raising children or intend to have a family someday, location is very important concerning where you live. Not all schools perform the same; if you intend to use public schools, find a house within your desired school district. All in all, your house should be within reasonable reach of good schools.

Transportation to Work 

The same goes for work. When looking for a place to live, you likely try to find the shortest distance between work, school, your community, and amenities. Saving at least ten minutes on the commute can make a large difference.


Speaking of commuting, how easy is it to reach your local grocery store? In general, the shortest route is best. Ameri-Star Homes builds new homes in several prime locations throughout Anne Arundel County, Maryland. We can find the right spot for you!
