Westhampton: A Coveted Location We’re all familiar with the popular real estate phrase, “Location, location, location!” While it’s true that, for some, a home's location can be an almost more important consideration than the home itself, the perfect location can mean different things to different buyers. For some, the ideal location is quaint and charming, close to the countryside and near to nature. For others, it can mean an area rich in cultural attractions and surrounded by important historic sites. For still others, it means proximity to major cities and the many conveniences they offer.
Poll any group of people on their favorite season, and one of the top answers will most likely be fall.
