I would highly encourage any buyer to drive by homes you want to look at first. My reason for suggesting this is over my years of selling homes, a home could be a “10” but if it is not in the right location, is on a busy road, sides to a really distressed neighbors house, sides to a railroad track, or backs to a 7-11, it could be the nicest house in the interior but the location kills it. I have always said “location, location, location”. You can change paint colors and amenities but you cannot change the location. So by driving by the locations of these homes that match your criteria, you will accomplish not only familiarizing yourself with the neighborhood and surroundings but you will also save your valuable time and eliminate a few homes based on just the location?
