Are corner houses worth more?

Hi AskMe, We're looking at a semi-detached corner house in W10 London and were wondering if it should be worth more than the house attached to it. The pros are more windows and less neighbours but the cons could be more risk of burglary and potentially more noise. Happy to hear your thoughts...

  • Hi dudexk, It would always be my opinion that corner houses would be worth more than others of a similar size in the same street, because, as you say, they get more light and you have fewer neighbours to deal with - which reduces the risk of disturbances from noise and the like. The same sort of principle attached to this is a bit clearer when it comes to terraced houses, where the end home will always be worth more than those next to it in the middle, for the same reasons. I shouldn't think that any perception of a risk of more burglary should have much of an effect on the values of these homes either, as the benefits of having fewer neighbours definitely outweigh any other issue. Many thanks, Scott

  • I agree they are worth more. They often are slightly bigger houses. In Burnley Ive heard them referred to as quasi semi houses. The extra light is also valuable in my opinion but I wouldn't want to put a price on it. In terms of price differential I would liken it to penthouse flat as against identical flat lower down. If you had the choice....
