    As my real-estate agent said to me, "Location, location, location", then the style of the house.  Of course after this last winter we had here in western NY, I'm thinking "Hawaii, Hawaii, Hawaii", and lots of sunshine! lol

    Firstly loction and then home.  Locatin arround the home surely effecting the home.  Home surroundings defenitely effected people who live in the home. So choose a best location for your home.

    Hard question but I would have to like the house appartment I'm buying regardless of location. If I dont' like hte look/feel of a place then I won't buy it. But I would look around at the locations I wanted to live in anyway smile

    I would want the house to be in a convenient area, but also the house would have to really be special.  When we used to look at houses, I would know as soon as we were in the door if it was right or now--it would have a feel and I knew there was no reason going any further--husband and real estate agents don't really understand that!

    Location first, house second.  right now I would love to be located in some sunlight--!

    I care more about the actual house. If you read many of my Hubs, I don't believe we should use housing as an investment tool and I believe this "equity" concept has caused a lot of suffering for my generation, literally pricing us out of house and home. I wouldn't think owning a shoe-box in Manhattan is a good deal, not by a long stretch, I would rather own a mansion in the wilderness. "City life" is overated. Seriously, what do you hope to do with "city life"? Go and get drunk? You can do that in the mansion. Play and listen to music? If you owned a mansion, you would have your own recording studio. I laugh at people who pay 400K for a 400 sq "condo" in cities like Boston, they're losers.

    Location is most important from a realtor's eye, but a well-staged home can really get you emotionally and can cinch the sale. I look at homes in a given area then listen to my heart.

    I start with the location and then pick the house in that location that suits my lifestyle and needs and is not going to be a bad investment.
