Over my many years in real estate I find it common that when a homeowner likes a neighborhood they buy up or buy down in that neighborhood. Of course that works only if a neighborhood has a broad scope of properties. Meaning can one buy their starter home And then as finances or circumstances allow move up to a larger or more upgraded home? If this is important to your client it may be a discussion to have in the forefront before they invest initially in a neighborhood.
Yes, that has been my experience. A pleasant area with good neighbors create a desire to stay put. And if the home is not large enough or needs updating the more likely that happy residents will make improvements to their current home.
