When it comes to buying a house, we've always heard the advice that the best thing to look for in a house/any other commercial or other property, the key is! location! location! location! Do you think this rings true in all circumstances? I recently read an article that suggested that it would be a wiser investment for one to buy a small house on the best street, than to buy a large(r) house on a "not-so-great" street. However, I have also entertained the perspective that one might want to purchase a house with specific, ideal features, such as a huge lawn, a certain number of bedrooms/bathrooms, as well as a house that's more aesthetically pleasing; and when it comes to money for improving the smaller house on "the best street", that money may not be as readily available as one might hope, at least not enough being readily available for that house to be remodeled/improved to one's ideal specifications. So, what's your take? Is it worth the trade-off?
