This is a very good questions and its nature is quite subjective. I am sure you have heard this before but real estate is all about location, location, location. With that said, an older home could have a greater value than a much newer one if it is located in a more prestigious area. This also must be evaluated from the buyer's perspective, but the good thing about today's market is that there are no shortages of buyers but only good marketable homes.
