That was my requirement to the realtor - no septic, no well, no oil heating must have gas already in the house, none of this it's in the street crap.

nothing wrong with either, just that it factors into the price.

I personally try to stay away from septic systems.

It's not that there is anything wrong with either well or septic, it's just something I see no advantages in having and a lot of disadvantages. Just don't need the headache.

Advantage is I get to live in the country on acreage with a well and septic.

If the street has gas, in most places they will connect your house for free if you add 2 appliances. A gas stove and water heater would do it. So, if you find a place you otherwise love but the gas is in the street - don't overlook it.

So put me on a highway, and show me a sign.

I did not know that. Something to look into.
