Cities are ever-changing. With each year, as new buildings are constructed and neighborhoods are transformed, home values can be dramatically impacted. For homeowners and, perhaps even more importantly, homebuyers, it’s essential to keep a pulse on future development plans in your area. When looking at property throughout the city, here are just a few things to keep an eye out for.

Protected Views
Before you go falling in love with a home’s sweeping views of the skyline, make sure they’re protected. Should a building be constructed nearby, it could not only obstruct your views but also block out natural light and have a less than desirable impact on the property value. For this reason, it’s especially important to work with a real estate professional who’s in the know when looking in neighborhoods that are experiencing rapid development.

Luxury Supply
Like any marketplace, the future supply of luxury housing will play a key role in your home’s long term value. In exclusive neighborhoods that are protected from further development and have a limited housing supply, chances are prices will appreciate faster than in an area that’s poised to see an influx of high-end residential development.

Future plans for transportation and infrastructure development around the city can be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, you probably don’t want your quiet neighborhood to turn into a bustling thoroughfare that commuters are racing through, but the addition of a nearby metro stop can certainly be beneficial. Improved access to main roads and highways is always a welcomed change, so long as it doesn’t totally transform the immediate area that you’re living in.

Noise Pollution
Peace and quiet is one of the greatest luxuries you can have in a city. Of course, it can sometimes be a casualty to development. Ongoing construction, new commercial projects and busier streets are just a few causes of increased noise pollution in a neighborhood. For those who want to escape the sounds of the city each evening, this is something to keep in mind.
