Property’s Location – Where it is located? near Airport, Bus and train station, near school, near office. These are the questions (basically requirements of buyer) before buying the house or property. For example – The family is looking for a house which is near to their office location, because they are now sick of travelling and city’s traffic. So they want a house near to their office which makes commuting easy for them.

In this case, they will agree to pay some higher price for the house near to their office location because this is something, they are looking for. Thus seller can take advantage and may sell the property at high price.

In other case, the property’s location is not easily reachable. Then the prices will go down automatically.

The house with well updated kitchen and bathrooms is more liked by the buyer because the large sum of money needed to renovate these two places. What’s the actual condition of your property impacts the price of the house directly.
