The age of a property significantly influences its value due to several key factors:

Condition and Maintenance: Older properties might need more repairs and upkeep, which can impact their value. Buyers consider how much they might need to spend on maintenance.

Historical Charm: Older homes often have unique features and a sense of history that some buyers love. This can make them more valuable in certain neighborhoods.

Modern Comforts: Newer homes usually have updated technology and energy-efficient features that appeal to buyers looking for convenience and lower utility bills.

Location and Community: Where the property is located and the neighborhood it’s in also affect its value. Older homes in well-established neighborhoods can be desirable.

Investment Potential: Whether it’s an older home with character or a newer build with modern amenities, the potential for future value depends on market trends and buyer preferences.
