Many home buyers think that the neighborhood in which they will live should be just as important a choice as their future abode. Whether you love the Starbucks on the corner or the horse stable a mile away, it's a good idea to consider what a future buyer of your home might consider. While the proximity of public transportation or the quality of local schools may not be important to you, those criteria could be a dealmaker to a prospective buyer when you want to sell your home. In order to assess your desired home's resale value, you need to evaluate whether your new neighborhood meets some common-sense, quality-of-life standards that many people expect when they buy a home.
