Your Kids Have a Say in Home Purchase

If you have a child they most likely will be a big part in your home buying decision. Here are some statistics by NAR.

* 49% percent of buyers consider the location, schools, and neighborhood as one of the largest factors when they have a child under the age of 18. In addition,

* 43% consider a neighborhood convenient to the school as a high desirable. When a family with a child buys they tend to look at over 2,000 square feet and 4 bedrooms tends to be the normal.
