The economic makeup of a community. The level of education, average incomes, family statistics etc. This is precisely why you should form a relationship with a respected realtor who is willing to invest the time and effort in providing you with the correct tools and information to assist you in becoming an informed buyer.

This includes helping to pick the right lender, inspector, attorney etc. A trained monkey can point out a kitchen, living room, bathroom etc. But, proper guidance, and information to help you achieve your goals in invalueable, and requires a good deal of experience. An example I can give you, On a few occasions, couples came to me thinking that they wanted to purchase in certain areas of Queens.
