When you’re ready to sell your home, whether for profit or because you need to relocate, keep in mind that there are some features that will turn buyers off. Some are likely out of your control. For example, unsightly buildings. Views are very important to home buyers. Any kind of elements such as cellphone towers or landfills can actually hurt the value of your home.
Another big turn off to buyers is noise pollution. Do you live near an airport or commuter train? You may have gotten used to the sounds, but it could be super sensitive to home buyers.
Street traffic. Do you live near a busy street? This could also negatively impact your home value.
