Prospective buyers want a perfect home. The search includes the initial needs and desires such as number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms and so on. Finding the perfect home should include the view from each window. The scenery while driving to the home should also be taken into consideration. Views add or detract value to a property.
A home across the street from a slaughter house, large dog kennel facility or scrap metal business not only affects the view but also presents noise pollution, adverse odors and active commercial traffic patterns. Observe the maintenance of neighboring landscapes and lawns. Corner lots, lots with no backyard neighbors and dead end street lots are desirable because they limit the vulnerability of unfavorable changes, as well as providing additional privacy.
Generic views, usually accompanied by tract homes and subdivisions are expected. There may be a side window observing a privacy fence or the brick wall of the home next door. A homeowner association may preserve a positive view with deed restrictions created to maintain property values within the community.
The direction the primary windows may face can also affect value depending on the perception of the buyer. You may enjoy the sunrise or sunset views but another prospective buyer may be concerned with heating and cooling factors affected by the home’s position.
An ocean view house is a highly desired entity. Wooded lots, mountain views, lake vistas, golf course panoramas and condos with magnificent city views are all available in Texas. From East Texas, to the Texas gulf coast, to the Hill Country, your choices are vast.
