We all have our favorite grocery stores. And what does this have to do with home values? Well, the stats are in. A Realty Trac study on zip codes with homes with Whole Food's and Trader Joe's report the following:
Homes near a Trader Joe’s have seen an average 40 percent increase in home value since they purchased. This is 6 percent more than the appreciation for near a Whole Foods. Keep in mind, that higher home values will also increase property taxes.
