A Lot About Lots

A Lot About Lots

When shopping for a home in Chapin, Irmo, Lexington or anywhere around Lake Murray, one of the most important considerations – yet one many people don’t pay enough attention to – is the lot type. Selecting the right one can significantly increase your enjoyment of the home. Picking the wrong one can mean years of disappointment and buyer regret.

There are three types of lots that homeowners tend to find most desirable and each has its pros and cons.


Here is the low down on each one: 



Quite Streets

Who doesn’t want a home on a quiet street? The benefits are obvious. However, don’t blow off properties located on or near a busy street. They often sell for less and the noise from traffic may not be as bothersome as you might expect. In fact, some neighborhoods in these areas feature special soundproof fencing. Plus these homes are often near bus lines making it easier to use mass transit and the neighborhood 7 Eleven or coffee shop might be just a few blocks and a nice walk away.If the home is otherwise ideal, schedule a viewing to judge the noise level for yourself.


Cul de sacs

These are lots located on dead end streets that often feature homes positioned around a large circle of roadway. For obvious reasons, a cul de sac is a popular choice for buyers with children. There’s less traffic and often, the only cars on the street are those of neighbors. However, homes on these lots often come with a higher price tag than other comparable properties in the area. But, from a lifestyle standpoint, that extra price may be more than worth it.


Corner lots

These are often larger and therefore provide you with more space. Plus, with the look of two front lawns, there’s twice the potential for curb appeal, and therefore the opportunity to increase the property’s value. On the downside, kids may shortcut across your front lawn to get to the adjacent sidewalk.
