There are many factors that can bring a home's value down. While some are really obvious, here are four that are not so obvious to spot.
1. Bad School
A neighborhood can really drag down a home's value. It is important to research the local school districts BEFORE making your next purchase.
2. Strip Club
While strip club's can appeal to certain crowds, it does not appeal to increasing a home's value. This is one of the worst types of features that can be near a home.
3. Power Plant
Not in the mood to crank up the juice? Living near a power plant can dramatically hurt the value in a home. It is nowhere near attractive to live by one. Not to mention the perceived health risks too.
4. Shooting Range
Think living near a gun range is safer? In terms of home values it isn't. A gun range brings the value down big time and gives the area an overall poor image.
While there are certainly features to look out for when shopping for a home, it is important to do the homework to determine the best home purchase for your needs.
