    Market Value

    In any case of a property purchase, market value should be a primary focus. The cost of the home should be able to be realized should a quick resale occur. If that is not the case your investigation about market value was not done properly. Most realtors will tell you a property should instantly give you at least the price you paid. It is easy to look at the market value at the court house in the county in the state in the United States. Other countries could allow some easy access to the value of the property before you buy it too.

    Flood Zones

    Some properties have flood zones and those are more than likely being sold at a reduced price. Some of the flood zones can never be safely built on or used for the purpose a person thinks to use it. Going to the court house in the county and the state as well as the town can give you flood areas to be aware of prior to buying property. Talking to neighbors of the area you are buying will tell you first hand info about flood problems experienced by properties in the region. You could and should check with the land management organizations to find out flood information too.

  • 03

    Schools

    Even if you have no school age children, check our the schools in the neighborhood you are contemplating buying property or a dwelling. This can guide you about the school taxes, the growth of new schools being built and so much more. Spend some time researching schools in the area. Distance from your home to the nearby school will certainly have a noise factor to consider. Many schools have year round activities both indoors and outside the school grounds. The close proximity to the school you desire to be close to could help in your purchase decision even before buying a property.

    Surrounding Homes

    Look at the outside of the surrounding homes and property around those homes. If your home is smaller than others in the neighborhood your choice could net you a heavy profit on the resale of your property once bought. Surrounding homes and the sale of those on the market tell you a lot about the home or property you are thinking about buying. For instance how well kept adjacent properties to yours you are considering will either degrade yours or increase the value. Spend some time just sitting in the neighborhood listening to happenings in the area you are looking into for a purchase. You will discover plus and minus points.

    Property Points

    Ask yourself if the property will do what you have in your thoughts. For instance, don't buy property for planting vegetable garden if it will not provide the land for that to be in the future. Look at the geography for your needs and desires. Consider the soil and the contents of the land suitable for building or other plans you have for the property. How far the property is to the fire house or hydrant will affect the insurance rates on both the dwelling and vacant land. Look to see how your dwelling sits in regards to the sun rising and setting.
