Pros And Cons Of Corner-piece / Corner- Lots. by obidevine(m): 10:15am On Oct 28, 2017
What is a Corner-Piece / Corner- lot? 

A corner -piece or corner-lot is ‎ a piece of land located at the intersection of two roadways that has frontage on each roadway,  having an interior angle of intersection of 135 degrees or less.. ‎


Corner-piece / Corner-lots‎

In the many years I have been working with buyers, I have only run into a few who would not consider buying a house on a corner lot/ corner-piece . So this is not a heated controversy. It is, however, something to think about in your home search. Here is simply a comparison of the pros and the cons of buying a home on a corner lot:‎



The pros  and cons  of Corner-Lots / Corner-Piece 

#Pros

1)..Corner lots are often bigger because they not only include a yard, but the large side yard of the adjacent street.
2)...Corner lots are more private because they have one less neighbor immediately next door.



3)..Corner lots can allow unusual landscaping such as installing a circular driveway.



4)...Corner lots can allow easier access to the back yard .‎



5)...Corner lots can allow more sunshine into the house itself because there are fewer homes closeby that potentially can cast shadows.



6)...Corner lots allow you to have more on-street parking adjacent to your home.





#Cons



1)... Corner lots mean more landscape maintenance that is visible from the street.



2)..  Corner lots  potentially create a smaller back yard if the lot is mostly outfront and to the side of the house.



3).. Corner lots can diminish the privacy in your back yard if there is visibility from the adjacent street or if the lot is small enough that people out on the sidewalk can hear you in your back yard.



4).. In the case of sewer improvements or sidewalk maintenance where local authorities assess repairs based upon the per foot of street frontage, corner lots can be more expensive to own.



5).. Corner lots can potentially  have move light exposure at night from street lights or head lights.



I think that for every buyer who dislikes a corner lot there is a buyer who prefers one. So don’t let the corner lot issue be your primary criteria when buying a home, unless you have exceptionally strong opions about the pros and cons above. I personally like corner lots . . Tatiana Nicole , a partner , calls a corner home “a rare home”. She says that a corner home is “a rare home that’s distinctive in a world that makes distinctive homes more valuable”. Perhaps that statement goes a bit overboard, but I do like the sentiment.

Corner lot can be a very valuable property for block of shops especially in business areas. The pros far outweigh the cons.
