We have all heard the phrase, “location, location, location.”

When buying a home, location matters.

Important location factors include:

  • The price and availability of homes
  • The safety of the neighborhood
  • The quality of local schools
  • Convenient access to shops and restaurants
  • Transportation and access to interstates
  • Water access and views
  • The community and lifestyle.

For home buyers, it is important to be familiar with recreational activities, entertainment, and attractions in the local area. With the Rock River and over twenty lakes in the area, there are many parks, biking trails, snowmobile trails, and kayak/canoe opportunities.

When you live in Jefferson County, nature based outdoor recreation and local community events are right outside your back door.
