Long-Term Property Goals

What do you want your home and life to look like in 5 years? Or 10? Your long-term goals can impact everything from the area you choose to your budget. A young couple who dreams of growing a family can take some time fixing up their home and slowly enhancing the property. Someone with young kids may want a turnkey home that’s ready to move into and start attending the best school available. Empty nesters are often looking to downsize their space and mortgage for a more manageable lifestyle. 

Your available land is also a consideration. A smaller lot could be perfect for you, or you may want the option to put in a pool or even hunt on your own ranchette. We can recommend properties inside of town or on the outskirts that align with your long-term goals. Beyond the right home, we can also help you think through the long-term ROIs and any immediate repairs that could impact your budget.

The Home’s Age and Upkeep

The best Stamford homes for sale fit into that sweet spot of age vs. upkeep and repair budget. An older home could be a win for your budget in two ways. For starters, a home more than 20 years old may have just undergone renovations for a new roof, updated appliances, an HVAC system, and necessary repairs often required at the 20-year mark. Or an older home may need a long list of repairs, which could lower the price point of your home but increase your repair budget. If you’re up for tackling the upgrades yourself or doing them as your finances recover from the startup of home ownership, you could score a home below market value.

Many people dream of owning a newer home, but they may come with generic fixtures and aesthetics that you’re hoping to update and personalize. You could decide to treat home buying as a turnkey experience where you don’t need to do a thing. Or you may need some style changes and update your home to your preferences before moving in. 

It’s also important to consider the upkeep required. Is the yard unruly and needs help getting into shape? Are you looking at a ranchette with endless fence repairs and ongoing maintenance? Make sure the home you buy reflects your time, resources, and budget demands. 

Outdoor Space

We touched on how important it is to consider the outdoor space of any Stamford homes for sale you’re considering. Beyond budget and upkeep, you also want to think about how you’ll best enjoy it. You may want a big porch to enjoy looking over your front yard and chatting with neighbors. Or you might have a shed on your wishlist to tinker in and store some of the overflow from your home. Whether you want a tire swing for your kids or a fire pit to gather with friends, we’ll help you align your vision with what’s realistic for each property. 

Public Schools

Public schools are often a deciding factor for homeowners. You may want a home close to the local elementary school or within walking distance for older kids in high school. Even if you have adult children or have no immediate plans to have your own family, public schools still matter. The long-term ROI could prove higher should you ever sell your home when you align your goals with a good school district. 

However, living far from a school could also be a win for your desire for peace of quiet and budget. Depending on your needs, you may be able to find a home at a better price point that’s not as convenient to town and area education.

Proximity to Amenities

You may think the best Stamford homes for sale are situated right in town or secluded from neighbors. Stamford’s 12.9-mile town is an absolute gem and attractive to homeowners looking for a mix of amenities without getting caught up in the bustle of the city. If you do need a little more culture or amenities from time to time, Abilene is about a 40-minute drive away. The Ekdahl Nelson Real Estate team can help you find a home central to the things you enjoy the most, whether eating out with family or quietly working in your yard.
