I should clarify some...
Does the local weather influence where you buy in a local.
Here in North Branch, Minnesota, the majority of people work 1/2 hour or more away from home.
Snow storms can make travel terrible and take a lot longer.
But there is also the issue of getting in and out of your driveway.
WE get ice sometimes, and when it gets slippery, you may not get out of your driveway if you have a
hill. Same goes with the snow.
I know of a place where the driveway is downhill and does-not level off until you get to the garage.
2 weeks ago, he went right through the garage door because he could not stop.
In buying your first or next home, keep these issues in mind. Could save you many a headache!
Winter can be very pretty but also challenging.
