A Quick Home Buying Guide – Top 3 Details to Consider

There are a lot of details to consider when you’re buying a new home, so many in fact that important details can easily get overlooked. That’s why it’s important to know what you want most in a home and then use that to guide your search.

Knowing what buyers want most has been the guiding inspiration behind Lathrop’s Stanford Crossing communities. From professionals looking for a shorter commute to families looking for their forever home, our communities aim to meet each buyer’s needs, wants and most especially, their dreams. The result is a relaxed, worry-free home-buying experience and a home that’s perfectly suited for you.

Distance to Work and Schools

You should first consider the location of your new home. What will your commute be like? Is it close to freeways or public transportation? Families and those wanting to start families should also consider their new home’s proximity to schools and which homes are in their desired school district.

Close to Schools: Stanford Crossing is a short distance from several first-rate schools of all levels and is within walking distance from the local Lathrop High School.

Resale Value

It’s important to consider the value your home will have in the future. Is the area growing? Is it projected to hold its value or potentially increase in value down the road?
