Hi V, and thanks for the question.
To be frank, I've owned and lived on a home on a corner lot three times and once on a home that was not located on a corner. The only home that was burglarized was, funny enough, the home that is located inside the community. All three of my corner lot homes have never been burglarized--not once. Although I've heard similar comments about homes on corners being more susceptible to theft, truth is that there is usually more traffic and more "eyes" on a home on the corner than a home located within the interior, so an interior lot can be just as attractive to a would-be burglar as a corner home.
Certainly corner lot properties located on busy streets are considered, by most buyers, to be less attractive than homes with less traffic and noise exposure. But if, as you state, the home is located on a quiet area with low traffic, I don't see that the corner lot would be any less attractive than another lot within the same community. There are definitely buyers who find a corner lot less attractive for reasons other than traffic--usually stemming from a personal or religious reason for disliking the corner lot--but there are an equal number who like the larger lots or simply have no preference or prejudice for the corner lot.
What I can say, for sure, is that having a corner lot home means that I have only two (2) neighbors (the one behind me and the one to the side of my home) rather than four neighbors to worry about, and that can always be an advantage in feeling "less crowded" than other homes. Also, my lot is bigger than others along the street, so that's also a plus.
The truth is that only you can determine if a corner lot is what you want for your home and family members. I would not worry at all about whether or not a future buyer has a concern about the corner lot--after all, if the area is a good one, the home is well maintained, and the neighborhood is attractive, the corner lot will the least of a future buyer's concerns.
Work with a great agent, and buy your dream home! Good luck!
