One of my clients found a great home in the Boulder foothills surrounded by scenic open space. It turned out that that this “open space” was a Boy Scout summer camp, which meant bugles all summer at 6 AM and camp songs until 10 PM. My client actually liked the idea of living in proximity to the camp, but he bought the home knowing he might have bought a resale problem. If the house next door is used as a rehabilitation center for recovering drug addicts or sex offenders, you may want to know that. If the airport, landfill, or poultry rendering plant is six blocks away, you had better know that.
