Considering Potential Resale Value

You are looking for a nice place to call home right now. Eventually your requirements may change - you may need to relocate to another community, get a bigger house for a growing family, or you'll decide to downsize to a more manageable home due to age or health considerations. You want to be sure that your property retains its value so that it will sell quickly and for a price that recoups your investment, so plan to buy only where that is probable. Neighborhood appearance, amenities and access, convenience to good schools and shopping, the size and quality of the house you're considering relative to the others around it, as well as the condition of the house itself are all major concerns.

It will be very hard to judge whether you have found a good buy in an area "at the bottom of the market" - if there have been a number of short sales or foreclosures in the neighborhood, values may continue to skid for a while before they level off and start to go back up again. It takes courage to look out at vacant windows surrounding you, but if the location's advantages outweigh the shortcomings, you may be making a smart decision. Do you have the time and the money to wait it out?
