It's important to know that while the physical structure can depreciate over time, the soil underneath is usually valued. People tend to focus on the fact that buying their house is the most important investment they will make and forget the importance of the land where the house is located.

Land values because of the simple fact that it is in limited supply because no one has made it anymore. As the population continues to increase, the demand for land will also increase. When supply is limited, prices go up.


The location of homes for sale in your area may actually be more influential than the physical attributes. Consider two similar houses, one on a dead end and one on a road that is often traversed. Families with children may appreciate the structure near cul-de-sac because they feel it will be safer.

Families with young children may value structures in younger neighborhoods than in older ones, even though homes in "older" locations are superior. No matter how good the house is, families will want their children to be near other children so they have playmates.
