Does the age of a house affect its value?

The age of the house certainly does affect its property value.

Newer homes are less likely to have maintenance issues and will be more tech-friendly. In addition, It’s easier to make renovations with new homes

A few touches here and there could improve the value of your home, such as repainting or buying new furnishings.

That’s not to say there’s no benefit in buying older homes. Many property investors make a profit off house-flipping, which means buying an older home and fixing it up.
