Choosing a home involves a lot more than finding an attractive structure with a roof to keep out the elements. The neighborhood plays a big role in your lifestyle and the school district in the area factors into the future value of the home. Homes in good school districts not only sell for more than those in poor districts, but they hold their value better.
