A neighborhood is a district or locality characterized by similar or compatible land uses. Neighborhoods can be characterized by factors including (but not limited to) architectural styles; building ages; building sizes; typical site size; and current land uses.
The results of a neighborhood analysis enable Vision to identify the factors that influence the value of properties in the neighborhood and to define the area from which to select the market data needed to perform a valuation analysis.
Broad market and economic conditions provide the background for local and neighborhood influences that have a direct bearing on property values. The desirability of a neighborhood is reflected in the prices that are paid for properties in that neighborhood. Neighborhoods where properties sell at higher prices are considered to have a higher degree of desirability.
