Is it all about location, location, location when it comes to selling houses?

Location, location, location is everything when selling a home or is it? What are the other determining factors that could make a property worth more? According to the Homes and Property magazine there are 14 different aspects which could potentially boost the value of a London home, they say that it’s much more than about size in square feet, or location.

Proximity to open spaces can add up to 20% to a home’s value, especially if it’s located in London or in a built up area. Living in a quiet street will also add around 15% to a property, as road noise can be very off putting for some buyers. Technology is also high on the list (including a high speed broadband connection) – especially with top-end properties, buyers will expect the latest gismos and appliances, boosting the price by around 8%.

Home-buyers are much more energy conscious with rising energy costs and with the aid of the EPC rating they can quickly determine whether a home will be energy efficient or not – making a home with a good rating more desirable. Although the square footage of a home might not be the top priority for buyers, the feel of space is very important, a home with good proportions and high ceilings will help to make it feel larger. Commuters and London buyers will also be looking for a property located near to a train or tube station.
