It’s a maxim in real estate that the three most crucial factors in selecting a house are “location, location, location.” It’s also true! No matter how wonderful the house is, the location is key to how well you’ll like living in it and how well it sells when you’re ready to move on. Before you buy, carefully check the following factors to be sure the house you like is really the one you want to live in. 

1. Consider destinations

Where will family members go most often from this new location? How easy is it to reach those places from the house? How accessible are schools, churches, grocery stores, medical care, public transportation, shopping malls and emergency services?

2. Be sure rooms have a view

What is the view from the house and yard? Is the yard right for your anticipated activities? What uses are possible for nearby undeveloped land? Is a new road or commercial development planned?

The New Hanover County Schools now have all the annual reports online cutting down on the papertrail.

“Printed documents become obsolete and they’re limiting,” Quattlebaum said.

The annual report provides information including test scores, the district’s financial report, academic achievements and the its strategic plan. All pages are also viewable in Spanish.
