First-Time Home Buyers Best Choice as Destination for House Hunting

First-Time Home Buyers Best Choice as destination for house hunting: Manchester CT Real Estate

Manchester Connecticut is situated in the central part of the state of Connecticut. The town of Manchester offers easy access or commute convenience because of the three interstate highways ,   accessible within the city

I-384 leads to Providence, RI.

I-84 takes you to Massachusetts and New York.

I-291 is just a short junction to I-91, which then provides the primary north–south thoroughfare in the western part of New England.

Everything that you need for your daily existence and recreation is right in the town of Manchester. This town can boasts retail stores galore, huge shopping center, strip malls, and an array of restaurants that will satisfy your gastronomic cravings and a bevy of boutiques in the downtown . It also housed cinema theaters which is now called Cinemark. Cinemark has 18 screens which translate into more selections for the moviegoers. One can treat himself to the snacks offered at the concessions or to a nice cold beer and pizza inside the building before or after heading to the movie.

Quality of life is enhanced by convenience combined by large parcels of land allotted for parks and recreations. Manchester Connecticut has both. With 23 walking trails and 10 parks, Manchester Connecticut is the place to be.

Most of my first-time home buyers bought their homes in Manchester. If a household is paying $1200-$1500 a month, it does not make sense why one should not own a home instead of renting as home prices in Manchester remain affordable.

broadThis 3-bedroom home with 1200 square feet of living space closed on March 4, 2016 and it is now owned by my first-time home buyers. They used to pay $900 in rent. Their monthly mortgage for this home inclusive of principal, interest, property taxes, homeowner’s insurance and mortgage insurance is approximately $1047.

Hence, I advocate strongly for home ownership.

Let us take a glimpse at the trend in Manchester Real Estate Market.
