House hunting in your hometown can lead to a false sense of confidence. Knowing the lay of the land, best routes to commute and the quality of schools are all advantages. Yet, these can lead to assumptions which may cause you to miss out on hidden gems. Existing houses that have not been on the market in several decades and new land development could be just what you never knew you wanted. When looking at the housing inventory that is available online mapping what is for sale is only part of the story. An area once undesirable can now become that up and coming place to live.

The decision to stay within a particular geographic area can make moving a little less stressful. House-seekers can keep shopping at the usual grocery stores and also continue to use the same services (barber, dry cleaner, florist, etc.). School-aged children may be able to stay at their current schools. You can easily predict the commute time with accuracy. Making house hunting in familiar surroundings a creative adventure. 

Established neighborhoods

With some of the aging population looking to downsize, a family could find the square footage that fits their needs in a property still owned by the original purchasers. These houses may be in older established neighborhoods off the beaten path. Roads that as a local, homebuyers have not needed to travel through. In other words, a hidden gem in your hometown. 

New construction

New construction and planned developments can give a home buyer more updated options and conveniences. Plus, a built-in lifestyle layout within a neighborhood; many buyers like the idea of staying within a certain distance to their hometown stomping grounds. Keeping social ties and services that they know and enjoy. New, but familiar, with upgrades, can attract those buyers wanting a move in ready property.

Revitalized neighborhoods

With so many areas tight on available housing, buyers can put creativity to work to find the best house for their family. Knowing what kind of layout your family needs to navigate daily life is one thing to consider. Another is the neighborhood and how it functions. Common play areas or cul-de-sacs can be helpful for families with active kids. Pet-friendly neighborhoods and fenced yards that are good sized can really provide a quality of life for home buyers. Revitalized neighborhoods can provide hometown options in previously overlooked areas. A completely remodeled house or one needing a few updates can provide a buyer with the opportunity to enjoy customization in a locale that keeps them local. 

When hometown house hunting, you may enjoy formerly undiscovered treasures right in their own “backyard.” When ready to start the house hunting, ask your real estate professional about off-market homes in older neighborhoods.
