When buying a property one often desires that the neighborhood is comely and as such, property value will rise in time. It is not uncommon for people to complain about the poor conditions of the neighborhood owing to the unsightly appearance of junk and litter. Common sources of junk include litter from felled trees and lumber remaining from home improvements. One of the main reasons for unwarranted clutter and junk is hoarding. The inability to let go of disused items leads to the collection of heaps of useless electronic and other components. This simple oversight can knock off between 5% and 10% from the value of a house when considering resale.
Many cities have legislation to assist with improving neighborhoods such as those that require parking of vehicles at the rear of the property. Such laws ensure disused vehicles remain out of sight. It is believed that proper management of junk is the duty of the property owner and leaving it unattended is a violation of law in many areas. Based on the above laws it is clear to see that a poorly maintained yard affects relations with neighbors owing to the clutter they are forced to live with. This type of environment is clearly unsuitable when one has visitors and may affect personal relations between individuals. Removal of junk is a priority and should not be taken lightly.
Disadvantages of Junk
The major disadvantage caused by junk is the reduced property value implied by the eyesore it creates. For this reason, many cities have penalties that can be imposed for non-removal. In addition to this poor disposal of junk often leads to other problems in the general ecosystems owing to landfills and other disposal techniques.
