Re: Picking location to buy a house

said by mityfowl:

Its all about location.

Here in Dallas there are some great public schools. (not in Dallas DISD).

Or there are private schools that are even better. $$

If you are going to start a family it should be your 1st priority.

If you are loaded it won;t be hard,

Location

Location

That's what I am trying to figure out, the location Here is an example that scares me. My friends bought a house several years ago. It's in an up and coming area, and their immediate neighborhood is great. However 3 blocks over is a let's call it a not so nice area. There are 3 options, status quo, nice area expands, bad area expands. I am trying to avoid having to deal with scenario 3 as much as not buying in a bad area initially.

You pay for history.

History is your guarantee.

I don't know the east.
