  • School district and location. ~ A big concern for young families, and you want to be close, yet not too close.
  • Proximity to shopping. ~ Shop till you drop in your own backyard.
  • Freeway access. ~ Again being close is great, but not too close.
  • Single story vs. two story. ~ Single story homes often sell for more per square foot than a 2-level counterpart.
  • Parks and recreation. ~ Recreational opportunities and actives in an area can be a big plus.
