From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Homeowners with children often like a cul-de-sac because the kids can play in the road without having through traffic. Others like it because they do not have the traffic driving through all the time. The only people that usually go by their house is someone else living in the cul-de-sac or someone turning around because it is a dead end.

I found an interesting definition on cul-de-sac for you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cul-de-sac
In general, cul-de-sac is more favorably looked upon by buyers because what Debbie said. My neighborhood has quite a few cul-de-sacs and the kids just love to play there, seem to be quite protected and safe (note - the neighborhood is also famous for good schools and do attact families with school aged kids.)
