Recent sales - Your real estate agent should give you data on the recent home sales in the neighborhoods that you're asking about. You'll want to know average time on market, selling versus listing price and more.
The appreciation history - Is the community considered desirable because of its location or affordability? Have home prices gone up or down over the last 5 to 10 years?
Economic factors - Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Is there a nice mix of work in an area, or does it depend on just one industry?
Each of these factors plays a role.
