Should House Value Increase Or Decrease If Near Pubs?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I'm new here, but I came across some interesting data when building a widget for Gartoo called How Tipsy is Your Town, which suggested that on a national level areas with a large number of pubs tend to have lower house prices due to the general increase in crime rate. However, I was thinking that in some respects pubs should increase the value of houses as they retain British Culture, add community spirit, and provide recreational activity. What do people here think?

I guess it depends if its a nice place serving proper well kept beer with a friendly atmosphere, or a grotty chav infested chain pub with no soul and plenty of vomit.

the further away a pub is from my house the better, i would be skint, i love a good pub atmosphere, especially a proper pub, with darts and a billard or pool table, friendly bar staff that remember your name and drink etc.

not many of those around any more

Having previously lived next door to a fairly nice village pub I can say that 1) I would never do it again and 2) it should halve the value of any house to be in the vicinity of a pub!!

The clientele would arrive quietly and looking like very nice people - they would however, after sinking a few, leave noisily and in need of being awarded an ASBO - made worse once the smoking ban came in and they would spend most of the time hovering outside - why when people have had a drink do they get so loud?!!! Even said village pub would start being noisy at about 7am with deliveries and putting bottles into recycling bins - sure the landlord threw them from a distance - and the noise would finish around midnight - sometimes stretching till 3am if there was a party on.
