The Blight Guide: What Ammenities Are Worth
"The right postcode and a tasteful extension are not enough to beat the housing slump. You need good transport links, a top state school down the road and a stretch of inviting greenery within easy reach. If the place next door has fallen into dereliction, you can wave goodbye to almost a fifth of your house's value, according to a survey published yesterday by the property database company Hometrack."
