One large factor when choosing where you live is the location and the community. A big portion of the community is the surrounding school ratings.

Buying a home is a big investment. When doing so, a big factor will inevitably be the cost. Those numbers can be the make it or break it when choosing your “forever home”. When the value of a home is evaluated, factors such as home size, space, location, finishes, and amenities are taken into consideration. A home located in a good neighborhood within walking distance of a highly rated school can increase the value of it.
When thinking of your home it is also good to consider the features and furnishings. Think bigger picture when it comes to garages or pools and what the maintenance may be, the drawbacks, and the benefits. The amenities needed vary based on the location so, for example, don’t always need a garage somewhere like San Diego where there are volatile weather changes, but having the garage is a great perk. In the future, all of the features and furnishings become what increases the value of your house when you look to sell.
