PICKING THE RIGHT NEIGHBORHOOD
To determine whether your new home will retain its value over time, check out
the historical sale prices for nearby, comparable properties.
Rate of Ownership
Primary residents are more likely than renters to spend money upgrading
property over time. This will increase the overall value of the community over time.
Higher percentages of homeownership often correlates with a safer community. Permanent residents are more invested in their neighborhood security and quality of life.
Even if you do not have children, a community with a highly ranked school district is likely to offer a better quality of life.
