If you are moving out of the city to the suburbs, you’ll get a great yard for the kids to play in. If you are downsizing for retirement, you’ll get a more manageable space. If you are looking for a fixer-upper, you’ll get a lower price. And of course, if you are looking to build a custom home, you’ll get the perfect floor plan that will fit your lifestyle.
