How much premium should I pay for a lot with day and night view?

Asked by DarthBL, Dublin, CA Wed May 15, 2013

And does one type of view better than another? (E.g., day vs city night vs gold course)

Views are difficult to price. Unfortunately, there is no "blue book" that we can reference that will tell you exactly what a given view is worth. The short answer is a view is worth what someone is willing to pay for it, which means it is worth a different amount to every buyer.

I agree with Carl. If you want the view, pay slightly more than your competition if it is a resale, or pay what the builder asks if it is a new home. Views of city lights in my experience are more valuable than golf courses in general, but it depends on the specific view you are talking about.

In the current market this question is almost a moot point - if you want the unit, you pay what they are asking (if it's new construction) or try to win the bidding war (if it's a resale). If you truly want any piece of property in the current market, it's not a matter of what you think it may be worth - it's more a point of what do you think someone else might be willing to pay to keep you from getting it. Figure that out, then pay a bit more ...
