Three Factors to Consider When Choosing a New Home Location

When you are looking to purchase a new residential property, there will always be a strong emphasis on the location. After all, a property’s surrounding area can have a big impact on the value of the house and ultimately, your experience living there. It’s important to consider all the aspects of a location, looking at not just the present day but your future in the new build home too.

In order to support buyers in their venture to find a new home, Granville Developments, have compiled a list of three factors to consider when choosing a residential property development location.


Whilst looking at different locations, it’s important to consider how accessible it is for your lifestyle, such examples could be is how convenient is the property situation for your daily commute? How many optional routes will you have to local cities or towns? These factors Granville Developments suggest are vital when considering the location of your new home as the ability to access your professional environment could have a significant impact on your wellbeing.

Scenic Views

When looking at a new property, the overall appearance of the surrounding area is as important as the house itself. As a result, new housing developments in Essex or Suffolk often sell with ease – especially those which provide panoramic views of cityscapes or the countryside. Properties near natural landmarks such as rivers, lakes and parks are also desirable, allowing individuals working in the city to return a calm and peaceful environment

Surrounding Amenities

With many new housing developments, buyers will find that their homes are located within walking distance of restaurants, shops and nightlife. While properties in these districts tend to be more expensive than out-of-town alternatives, most buyers prefer to live closer to these services and conveniences. It’s also important to consider schools in the local area – especially if you are looking to start a family in the future. Before you purchase your new property, make sure you look at the distance and quality of the surrounding schools. A good location is individual to each buyer. While some factors will be at the top of your priorities list such as house type and location, certain lifestyles may not need to factor in other elements such as the nearest schools. Therefore, next time you’re searching for a new home, it’s important to keep the points above in mind and consider what a great location means to you.
