- Have property prices gone up or down over the last 5 to 10 years? Is the area believed to be desirable because of its location or affordability?
- Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Is there a nice mixture of jobs in an area, or does it count on just one industry? All these play a role.
