http://homes.yahoo.com/news/why-location-matters-real-estate...Decent article on what makes a good/bad location for a purchase. This one is my fave, and one that too often gets ignored:2. Good schoolsBeing in a good school district is important, even if you don’t have school-age kids and never plan to have any. Fact is, young families always will be buying their first or second homes. They will do their home search based on location in general and good school districts in particular. The better the school district, the higher the values of the surrounding homes can be.Found a home you love but the school district is subpar? Be aware of that issue for resale down the road. Bottom line: When you buy a home, you should always think like a future seller.A good school district will help your home retain value in a housing decline, help it to higher heights of value in a rise. Even if you never plan on having kids, it is important to consider.IP
