You're already on the right track, thinking about your investment here.  Most family's  net worth comes from their home equity. Experts advise to buy a home that suits your lifestyle and means, but it's nice to buy or build in a neighborhood that has proven resale appreciation, such as Lyons Landing.
      Mortgage rates are still near a lifetime low.  Everyone knows they are starting to head up. Buy now, or kick yourself later thinking you could have built your dream home for the payments you will pay later for an average used home!
