I am often asked, “Where is the best location in Highlands to purchase real estate?” That answer depends on the wants and needs of each individual buyer.
There is high demand for homes in the City Limits where you can walk to Town. This has been a major trend for several years and that trend will always be desirable.
Newly trending are buyers looking for a home outside the City Limits on 2 or more acres with space for a nice fire pit area, for growing organic foods and fruit trees or sitting on the porch looking out over a garden oasis, a big yard for children/grandchildren, a place for a pond or waterfall feature, outdoor sports and privacy. Other benefits are lower prices and lower taxes.
One thing’s for sure, the reason people choose Highlands remains the same. There is truly no place like Highlands.
If you have been thinking about making Highlands a second or permanent home…why not now? Time is ever changing and easily gets away from us and today is all we really have. Although our real estate market is trending upward, take a look and you will still find some of the best real estate values we have seen in several years. Why?….because you love it!
