Learn 7 Ways to Choose a Home in Town or the Suburbs by Sitterle Homes


Buying a new home is an exciting time and ensuring that you pick a location that best meets your needs is a critical part of the home buying process.  There are many things to consider when researching communities, and the sales homes consultants at Sitterle Homes have put together their top seven ways to help you establish your priorities and narrow your search in choosing a home in town or the suburbs.

Lifestyle –  Do you want to be able to walk to places of interest? Do you want a family-friendly community or one designed for the active adult/retiree? Do you want low maintenance or spacious yards that you can landscape and garden?  These are all important questions in determining the lifestyle that you want in the community surrounding your new home.

House Size – Do you have a growing family that requires larger square footage and a yard big enough for the kids to play in? Or are you getting ready to simplify your living space and want a more maintenance-free lifestyle.  New homes in town are often designed more for those looking for smaller homes with minimal upkeep.  However, if you aren’t willing to sacrifice proximity to work or big city amenities new garden home communities will present a good option.

Commute Times – If a work time commute on the highway in heavy traffic gives you heartburn than considering a home in town or even closer to town is a better option.  The added benefit of living in town is also access to more robust public transportation that also helps save on gas money.

The View – Rolling hills, San Antonio trees, or city scape with magnificent backdrops of San Antonio – in choosing one of Sitterle Homes new home communities you can have your pick of either.

Area Amenities – Every Sitterle Homes community offers exceptional amenities and if you prefer to have your entertainment, dining and shopping in your backyard than you’ll want to choose a home in or closest to town.

Top Schools – Families with students will want to research area school districts to ensure their children have access to an excellent education.  All of the Sitterle Homes communities are located near top rated schools and within award-winning school districts.  And even if you don’t have kids, choosing a home in a top school district adds to your property value and future return on your new home investment.

Nature Lover – A home outside of the city limits will often provide access to more trails, parks and greater greenspace for those that would rather spend their free time outdoors than exploring the city.
