Be a Stalker

Stalk the Neighborhood

 
Before you buy, get the lay of the land – drop by morning noon and night. Many homebuyershave become completely distraught because they thought they found the perfect home, only to find out the neighborhood wasn’t for them. 


Drive by the house at all hours of the day to see what’s happening in the neighborhood. Do your regular commute from the house to make sure it is something you can deal with on a daily basis. Find out how far it is to the nearest grocery store and other services. Even if you don’t have kids, research the schools because it affects the value of your home in a very big way.

If you buy a house in a good school district versus bad school district even in the same town, the value can be affected as much as 20 percent.
