One thing I always tell my clients is to check with the local police departments as far as making sure the area is a good one for crime etc. Also, I highly recommend checking out http://www.maeganslaw.com to see if there are any registerd sex offenders in the area. Believe me, they are everywhere. The have to register so people know what types of crimes they have committed. As far as future resale purposes are concerned, location location, location are really important! So, drive the neighborhoods and see how other homeowners are taking care of their homes. Some people have great pride of ownership which will certainly make the resale value of your neighborhood high. I would also stop and talk to the neighbors and find out how they like the area! Good luck!
