Location is important for anyone buying a house, but it’s especially important for younger home buyers. You’re making a big commitment to that location during a time in your life when you’re not necessarily tied down to a certain career, you don’t have that many family responsibilities, and most of your disposable income is still dedicated hanging out with friends and finding cool things to do on the weekends. For us, the ideal location is somewhere you can get outside, enjoy a drink with friends, and not break the bank on your mortgage.
