Real Estate - How does Road Infrastructure Affect Value?

A real estate topic that many people do not often think about is road infrastructure. Many people that are dealing with real estate think about the layout of the house, the location, and many other factors. However, one of the most important factors in the value of a home could be the infrastructure of the roads around it. Therefore, you need to have a basic understanding of the way road infrastructure can affect home value. 

Ease of Transportation

A house that is somewhat close to a good route will have an improved value as a result. People like to be able to get places quickly. Therefore, if you are within a reasonable distance from a good route, you can help yourself out. 

Too Close

Being too close to a major highway or busy street is not good for the value of your house. People like to think that they can let their kids out of the house to play without having to worry about them getting run over by a car. They also do not like to hear all of the traffic noise that comes with being close to a major highway. You want to be close enough to a major highway that you can get there within a few minutes, but you don't want to be so close that you can hear it.
