These factors help you identify prime real estate locations

When you buy a villa or a family home, you want to make sure not only to invest in a great property, but also in an excellent location. This guide, which our estate agents from Engel & Völkers Germany have put together for you, should help you with the purchase decision. A good infrastructure is undoubtedly one of the important indicators of a good residential area. A convenient and fast connection to the motorway network as well as to the public transport, sufficient shops, care and educational facilities for children as well as cozy cafes and good restaurants suggest an exclusive residential area. Furthermore, homebuyers should look for green spaces around their villa or family home. Living with a view of the countryside and the availability of public parks and other recreational areas increase the quality of life many times over. Of course, a low crime rate is one of the basic requirements for a good real estate location. The relevant information is available from your estate agent Engel & Völkers Germany or on the websites of the competent authorities. After all, pedestrian friendliness is a sign of an attractive residential area. If you can reach schools, shops, parks and restaurants within walking distance, it is perceived by real estate buyers as a real asset. When choosing your location, do you attach particular importance to various other features that were not mentioned here? Our real estate agents are happy to provide more information.
