Fort Lauderdale Real Estate Homebuying Considerations
Considerations When Buying:

This is probably the single most important consideration to keep in mind when buying a home.  In the real estate business, it is said that three things count in establishing property value:  location, location, location.  Houses may be updated, renovated, and improved, but neighborhoods and communities tend to retain their basic character and market value over periods of time.  Is the home in a safe neighborhood where people want to move, buy homes, and raise families?  Is there access to schools, transportation, and shopping?  Is the area run-down, filled with high crime, or noisy?  Are people moving away to better places to live?  Look for an area where homes sell quickly and easily.  It's a good sign if houses stay on the market for less than three months; if it takes six months or more for homes to sell, look elsewhere.  Avoid neighborhoods with a large number of undeveloped lots, abandoned homes, poorly maintained homes and yards, a large number of FOR SALE signs, or mixed zoning (commercial and residential together).

This Homebuyers Tip was excerpted from:

How To Buy A House, Condo, or Co-op, by Michael C. Thomsett and Consumers Union of the United States, Inc., 1996,
