The house next door can affect the value of your home
« on: March 23, 2013, 11:22:24 am »
How much is your home worth?
Well if you use Zoopla or any other online valuation websites it may give you a rough idea.
But.........
If you live next door to a well-maintained house, with a well-kept garden it can add as much as 12% to the value of your home
- which would be an extra £19,945 to the average price of a UK home.
Conversely, if you live next door to a "slum" you may find you have to drastically drop your asking price to achieve a sale.
