When buying a new property, don’t choose a neighborhood that declines sharply in property value. Always check the property value estimates to determine which property has a good reputation and will suit your budget. Then how a neighborhood holds property value? One of the biggest factors that determine whether a property will rise or fall in value is its neighborhood. There are different ways to check the property’s value level on real estate market.
First, get a track record of rising home prices. This will help you evaluate the neighborhoods’ direction in the market. Second is the neighborhood’s access to jobs. If the property is in an area with great employment opportunity, its value will increase in the market. Areas that will offer long-term job opportunities are places with low unemployment but with high household income and places with creative industries such as music, television, design, publishing or advertising. Places near prominent colleges and universities and research facilities will also have a great value.
Another determining factor is the desirable amenities around the neighborhood. The important amenities that can add value to a neighborhood are low crime rates, good public schools, retail stores, parks and educated population. In short, places that hold good value are those neighborhoods that basically do well on all of the factors mentioned.

This infographic talks about how a neighborhood's property value is assessed, so homebuyers can decide if purchasing a property there is a good investment. Since the first image is a home we can reasonably assume the topic will be something about houses, without needing to read. However, since photos are the main vehicle of visual communication here, it's tough to maintain that high-level topic throughout the design. In addition, most of the information is communicated solely through text; when a viewer needs to read long sentences or even paragraphs to get the information, it's a sign the infographic could use a boost in visual communication. In all, we'd give this infographic a C-.
