Possible Areas of Concern

  • Will there be major public infrastructure projects which will have a major positive or negative effect on the value of the home?
  • Will the home have a positive or negative effect on the value of the neighborhood?
  • What is the general condition of the area within a square mile of the house? Are homes in the area gaining, maintaining, or losing value?
  • What is the present zoning designation of the neighborhood?
  • Are there existing or new proposed commercial areas which will have no effect or a negative effect on the value of the home?
  • Are there new zoning code changes proposed for the area which will affect the home? This will need to be checked with an attorney.
  • Talk to your possible new neighbors. Do they like living in the neighborhood?       If so why? If not, why?
