Corner Lots
 
Pros and Cons of Corner Properties 
 
 
CHICAGO – Sept. 8, 2010 – Some people see a corner lot as an asset, but an equal number believe it is a liability.
 
 

Pluses of these properties include more flexible design options, shorter driveways, sunnier interiors and more on-street parking. The negatives are a small and not-very-private backyard, more noise, more streetlights and headlights, and a greater need to look out for dogs and children.
 

Additional maintenance demands, which bring higher costs, discourage some would-be buyers of corner properties, said Steve Hovany, president of Schaumburg’s Strategy Planning Associates, a real estate planning consultancy.
 

But some buyers like corner homes anyway. A corner home “is a rare home,” said Ray Hartshorne, partner with Chicago’s Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture. “It’s a home that’s distinctive in a world that makes distinctive homes more valuable.”
