Location, Location, Location. That's what everyone says, isn't it? It's true that location is, for the most part, the only aspect of your home that cannot be changed. So why don't people pay more attention to it?

For sellers, understanding and considering their neighborhood and location is very important when it comes to pricing their home to sell. What type of school district is this school in? What are the crime rates and median house prices for this area? Any expert agent should be able to provide this information to you. The Diane Cardano Team goes a bit further and provides this public information to prospective homebuyers of your property as well. If you are in an award-winning area, why not show that off?

For home buyers, this is often an overlooked aspect of their home search. It's easy to get caught up in sizzle factors of a property- that finished basement great for a man-room, or that soaking tub every woman desires. How about what the world outside of the home is like? You need to make sure you research the school district, crime rates, housing information and other statistical information to make sure this is a place you'd feel comfortable living.

Remember, open houses and showings can paint a pretty picture- but what happens at night in the neighborhood? How about at 6am? During a week day? Perhaps it's a good idea to test run the commute, and drive through and around the community during all hours of the day to get a real feel for the area.
