Yes for all the reasons that Rob mentioned. Also if you need to sell at some point in the future and the market is not so good at that time, then main road properties can be very difficult to sell. This is not good if you need cash in a hurry.Is a Main road always a negative? Does this matter in an IP?
Yes Julie, this is the only 'however' in the discussion. We have purchased many properties with a main road address HOWEVER, for all intents & purposes they are located behind unit towers or blocks facing the main road - so no noise or soot and a much better proposition.Can a unit or house that is set back with minimal road noise be a good proposition?
