Corner lot

1 Picture = 1,000 Words

Just in case there’s any doubt, the wide-angle shot (above) of this Lake Nokomis home definitively answers the question:  “is it a corner lot?”

Realtor conventional wisdom is that some Buyers prefer them, because of the extra light (and one less neighbor).

Meanwhile, others avoid corner lots, because of the additional street exposure, potential loss of privacy, and — at least in Minnesota — 4-5 months of extra sidewalk to shovel.

Net it all out, and corner lots are a wash (they fetch neither a discount nor premium).
