Taking a look at zip code information before you start getting your heart set on houses perusing real estate sites can be a good idea for a few reasons.

Obviously, your address, as well as your zip code, has an effect on your home's value. Exactly how it affects the value can usually be attributed to a few different factors.

Each zip code within a city has a ton of information attached to it. Stats on crime, education, how close a house is to a hospital, quality of schools, what kind of businesses are in the area, and more are all monitored within zip codes.

All of those factors have a huge impact on the value of a home, arguably a bigger impact than the native value of the home itself.
