Assessing the impact of streetscape on residential property in lower to middle socio-economic areas
Eves, Chris (2009) Assessing the impact of streetscape on residential property in lower to middle socio-economic areas. In Proceedings of the 16th Annual European Real Estate Society Conference, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm.
A number of factors have been shown to influence residential property prices in various locations. Studies have identified the importance of location in relation to services, transport and proximity to negative factors such as power lines and cell phone towers.
Often the socio-economic status of a residential precinct can determine the overall quality and nature of the streetscapes in that area, with higher value suburbs or locations offering a better visual appearance compared to areas where these factors are not present.
However, does the same value for a good streetscape apply in lower socio-economic areas or a buyers more motivated by less aesthetic factors such as size of the house, construction materials or land size.
This paper analyses specific streets in a lower to middle socio-economic suburb of Christchurch New Zealand to determine if the location of a house in a street with good streetscape appeal has greater value, investment performance and saleability compared to adjoining streets with less aesthetic appeal.
