forgot to check the corner box and got a call back...anyway whats the deal with a corner lot?? Ive never seen a difference in value. In fact I would think having frontage on two different streets may increase overall traffic and exposure?? why is this significant??

For whatever reason the form requires you check if its a corner lot. I see no difference in value for a corner lot, if anything, it may be a negative. There is generally a stop sign on a corner lot, that's where the drunks throw their empties out the window, just my experience.

I live on a corner lot and resemble that remark. Every sunday go out and clean up the bottles.


I belive that at one time I think it was FHA(?) required a corner lot adjustment. Really old item. I kinda remember it from what my mentor told me about it at one time. Seems they wanted to know if the subject was a corner lot and the adjustment for the corner lot. Think that is how it went at one time. Just a really old thing. Least that is what I was told.

Corner lots have lower building coverage ratio. Also, double size of sidewalks to pay for or clean snow and ice.

I think this might be a regional thing. In my part of the world corner lots tend to have larger sizes and builders always think they can get a premium. One design item is that the attached garage can sit opposite the front which some find appealing. Also with certain designs the view windows can be better, ie kitchen, living room and family room looking onto a street or park. It just depends on a wide variety of factors if a corner lot adds or detracts from value.

It's a physical characteristic that should be reported. In Texas, the site is larger because of the larger required side setback. Does that affect value? Yes, no, maybe. It all depends.
