The location of a house or property is important when it comes to commercial and residential property in the suburbs of any city. If a property is located in an area that has little traffic, such as a busy road, the value will be lower. However, if a property is in an area that is quiet and safe, the value may be higher. Here are some tips that can be used to determine the impact that Neighbors can have on property values in a particular area.
Neighbours can affect a house value for the same reasons that noise can. If there are many homes in an area, the more noise is created and that noise is absorbed by the houses. Consequently, more cars will be cruising through the streets and this creates even more noise. Neighbors who live in an area where there are lots of cars driving into and out of the area are likely to see their value drop.
Another factor that can affect the value of a home is the proximity to amenities. If the house is built with very nice garden facilities then the neighbours’ houses may be seen as less desirable. If the properties are close to parks and other common facilities, they may look better. It may be that people who are looking for a newer home to buy or rent want to walk or drive to places so they don’t need to use the amenities that a house built in isolation may have.
If you are buying a home in an area where a noisy neighbour or neighbouring homes are causing problems with your sleep or with the quality of your sleep, you can bring this issue into the negotiations for the sale or purchase of your home. If your neighbour has noise over twenty decibels, you might consider moving away from that area. If there are many homes in an area that have noises under six decibels, you may want to consider moving out.
One thing to remember when thinking about whether to live in an area where a neighbour has complaints is that these concerns may be brought up during negotiations. A good real estate agent should be able to advise you on how to solve the problem. If they don’t have enough experience in dealing with these situations, you may need to employ the services of a solicitor.
It might be that a noisy Neighbours works at night, so if you are not planning to work or to go to work at night, you may want to consider having your home fitted with a doorbell, security lights and possibly fitted with a clock. The presence of a doorbell can be reassuring and it can also give your home a better chance of being targeted by burglars. You should make sure that you have the best type of doorbell to fit your needs. It is also important to remember that a burglar does not usually consider homes that are protected by a security system because these tend to be easier to break into.
The area in which you live may be surrounded by schools, colleges or churches, all of which play a role in shaping the character of your neighbourhood. If you live next door to a school for example, people who live nearby are less likely to indulge in criminal activity because there is a greater chance that they will come across these kids as they walk to and from school. People who live near a church are generally friendly and although they may have different beliefs, the mere presence of these buildings can have a calming effect on their neighbours and on property values. Neighbourhoods that are secluded and quiet can help to protect property values because they are less likely to attract criminals.
How you behave towards your neighbours can have a huge impact on your property value. It is perfectly acceptable to say hello and hang out occasionally but it is important to ensure that you do not invite trouble and to stay on good terms with your neighbours. It might be possible to develop a policy of not saying anything to your neighbour when they ask you a question but then you should avoid asking too many questions when you are house watching because this could spark off a neighbour rivalry and you would want to avoid this happening. Sometimes it is easy to forget to say hello or goodbye but just being polite every time means a lot to your neighbours. When you are buying or selling a home, you need to put a little effort into maintaining good relations with your neighbours so that everyone enjoys their residence.
