Surviving the Credit Crisis – Unusual Location Factors That May Affect Your Property Value!

Real estate is about location, location, location! However, there are unusual location factors that can affect a home’s value that you may not think about. Don’t get caught unprepared!

Join the conversation as my guests, Dr. Bennie Waller and Dr. Scott Wentland, Professors of Real Estate and Economics at Longwood University and I discuss how registered sex offenders, rehab treatment centers, foreclosures/short sales, and other location factors can impact value and the psychology of buying and selling in positive and negative ways.

We will also be discussing how your realtor can help you guard against these important issues as well as infrastructure/zoning changes and neighborhood deterioration that will impact your long-term investment down the road!
