How Healthy is Your County - Access Your County’s Data

Many factors contribute to the value, marketability and enjoyment of a real estate.  Things like the quality of schools, quality of government, taxation rate, access to transportation, employment, entertainment, zoning and land use regulation are what we commonly consider. 

Emerging research suggests that your health is highly correlated to the health of those around you.  People in certain zip codes live longer, have lower levels of chronic disease, have lower propensity to addictions, and enjoy higher levels of psychological well-being.  Choosing to live in a healthy location probably means you will be healthier and your property values will be enhanced by your neighbor’s health. 

The site below offers statistics by state and county on health ratings in your area. How does your community compare.

Metro Atlanta offers some of the best investment opportunities in the US.  It is still possible to buy real estate at 1998-2002 prices but that window is closing fast.
