(5) Never Warn You About Zoning Pains
It is one of the most popular dirty secrets your real estate broker will never tell you. Zoning refers to the urban planning technique. It is used by local government in most developed countries for the use of land and buildings in urban area.
Zoning plans divide a land into different zones. It is done for the regulation of use, form, design & compatibility of development. A real estate property agent is mostly interested to close a deal without letting you know about zoning pains associated with a property.

You should thoroughly investigate an area for zonal plans before closing the housing deal from Municipal authorities & homeowners associations. You may also ask for suggestions & help from your friends & potential neighborhoods.
