Realtor conventional wisdom is that some Buyers prefer homes on corner lots, 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 what’s the takeaway?

Corner lots are a wash ” that is, they fetch neither a discount nor premium.
