When you hear someone mentioning aesthetic value in connection with real estate, that person is using aesthetic value as a way to point price appreciation added to the property because of its intrinsic artistic, beautiful and favored features.

Aesthetic value can be caused because of a property’s original architecture conception, but also because of home improvements done down the road. For instance: a home that is reminiscent of an art movement like Art Deco – which however popular is not the norm anymore – has added value because of its aesthetic values. If its owner does renovations that strips the property off its Art Deco’s nature and motifs, the aesthetic value of it will get lost and the house’s market value will likely go down with it. But if a person did small DIY Home Improvement that preserved all the aesthetic values of the property, the opposite happens, and the house’s market value goes up.

Moreover, the components of aesthetic values are not confined to the house structure. The settings of the localization in which the house stands also count. A lot. For instance: a home by the pond, with a view towards mountains and a lot of trees, provides a lot of aesthetic values in a property’s evaluation. But even a front yard garden renovation to improve curb appeal can go a long way into adding value to a home.

Hey, Victor! As mentioned in the content, aesthetic value is increased based on the property’s appearance and location. However, the actual value is given by an appraiser, and the methodology they use to measure the aesthetic value of real estate might be different in specific scenarios. Therefore, we can’t give you a bullet-proof method to correctly measure the aesthetic value of a property every time. Some home architecture styles might get outdated or overtime, home buyers might lose interest in certain types of homes with aesthetic value to them. Some communities under the authority of a Homeowner’s association(HOA) structure might limit your home’s aesthetic value because of home exterior rules imposed on the community’s homeowners.
