Is anyone aware of a study that quantifies the impact of daycare facilities in residential areas to property values? I imagine the impact is minimal.
H said:It would lower the value if I were the buyer. I would not buy a home next to a day care. It is not the traffic from a business that would bother me, rather the multi-color swings, slides, fire trucks and kooky signs like “KIDDY KORNER” that would most likely litter the yard. :-|
H said:No, I like and want children. I just follow my Grandfather’s attitude that children should be seen and not heard, and they really shouldn’t even be seen that often.
Cardinal said:Where do I join? Add me to the list of people who would not like it at the level Budgie's ordinance permits. Twelve is too many kids for a residential area.
biscuit said:12 Children and it can still be considered a home business? That seems like a few too many to me. I've heard of 5 or 6 being the limit before it is considered a commercial use and regulated, but never 12.
BKM said:The one mitigating factor-my parent's neighborhood had pretty big lots (1/4 acres plus). So, there was less pressure on the neighbors.
? How do you define / describe these people?

Budgie said:If I put up a basketball rim and a tether ball court in my backyard, how many kids would it attract daily. Better yet, how about a tramboline. I have three kids, each of which have several friends. Our house has always been open to visitors and it's not unusual to have 10 kids in our yards at once.
I don't disagree that child day cares likely reduce property values, but to what extent?
Once again, are there any studies out there.
