Like other worn-out mantras, it’s an over-simplification and misses the point.
What does location really mean in today’s real estate market?
Such a simple phrase, seemingly good advice repeated by friends, and over-used in countless real estate articles. But the reality is, “location, location, location” is one of the most misused mantras in the real estate industry, and misunderstood by sellers, buyers, and real estate professionals alike.
Myth #1 – Location is an Address, City, or Zip Code: Using a city’s name or zip code is a “shortcut with shortcomings” to express value. There are individual neighborhoods within larger communities that stand apart because of their unique features, amenities, and exceptional value. A really good location is much more than just a name or a zip code.
Myth #2 – Location is “Close” Proximity to Services: There may have been a time when being “close” to businesses or services was a real benefit. But being “too close” to traffic, noise, and congestion can take away from value and enjoyment. For many people these days, the “sweet spot” seems to be within a 15 minute drive to restaurants, shopping, and events.
Myth #3 – Everyone Already Knows About the Best Locations: See, here’s the thing… changes in neighborhoods have a way of sneaking up on us. What was once “that area on the South side we heard about” can become “the amazing place we found” in the blink of an eye.
Some of the best locations are yet to be discovered!
