Asked by Rob Foley, San Francisco, CA • Thu Feb 7, 2013
Hoping you can provide some advice here: we are bidding on a lovely house in a quiet neighborhood, and just found out today via disclosures that a day care will be opening up across the street in 2013.
The details are as follows:
> 3-5 yr old kids
> Maximum of 20
> Between hours of 08.00 and 18.00
> There is an outside yard on the house at the back. Kids will be allowed to play in groups of 8-10 twice a day for 45 mins
I have read all the concerns of existing neighbors which basically are summarized as:
> Parking concerns (drop off/pick up, double parking, etc.) - i don't see this as a huge issue as its only during 2 hours a day.
> Noise concerns - again I don't see this as an issue for me since playground is out the back of house and only small groups at a time.
For me though, the biggest issue is whether having a day care nearby could decrease the value of the property?
What are your thoughts on this in general - good or bad?
