Would a corner property adjacent to an A road be a negative factor?

The property that I am interested to purchase is right next to an A-road. Should that be a factor when I put down an offer? I don't think much noise is getting in, but it being in the corner, is quite exposed to the road and may not be that secure - from a theft/ burglary perspective? Also, would this have a bearing on my energy bill? It is semi-detached, but since its in the corner, I am afraid the electricity/ gas bill will shoot up overall to keep the property warm? If I have to quote lesser due to the above factors, can you give me a general indication as to how much should I take off the offer price?

  • Hello Ravi - I would suggest offering what you feel comfortable with, taking into consideration the above. In all likelihood, other potential purchasers will be thinking the same. It may also be worth voicing your concerns to the estate agent prior to actually making the offer - then you can ensure that any extra burdens with buying this property will be factored into the purchase price.
