Parks and Your Property Values
Buying property near a park or building near a park is a great way to assure yourself of higher property values. A house close to a park always has greater appeal than a property further away from one. Because parks require city funding to thrive, tax revenue from nearby properties plays a crucial role.
If your house is near a park, the benefits are certain to outweigh additional costs. Safe places for kids to play and adults to enjoy the outdoors are always an asset. Consider how you can benefit from a nearby park when you’re buying a home.
