The neighborhood is made up of a higher than normal number of rental properties in the community. As a buyer, this may not be as appealing to other sub-markets in the area that may have a higher percentage of home owners in the community. Neighborhoods can vary from one community to the next. I believe it is extremely important to view each community you might be interested in purchasing, both during the day and at night, if at all possible. A Realtor will be of great assistance if they are fimilar and/or have worked in the market in which you are considering. The Realtor will not only have personal experience but, third party information at their fingertips.
