I'm guessing yes, because you have 3 views (side, front, back) compared to non-corner house (you only have front and back views). Correct? Or it all depends.

Not really. Expense depends on the neighborhood it's in and the condition of the home.

I think long ago, in neighborhoods like Mount Vernon, the corner house was the Mansion of the block. Before they turned everything into apartments.

Nearly always, yes. People want sunlight and a view,

If that corner is on a busy street, it is not the most sought after. Helps having a middle house for energy conservation in the winter.

Depending on the neighborhood, some end-of-group homes have side yards as well as back yards. For many people that's a plus. In addition, you have a little more privacy in an end house since you only have one shared wall.

But, as HandsUpThumbsDown states, end houses in a lot of areas are on street corners, and that may make them less desirable.

In Idlewood, the corner houses are a little bit bigger, I think. Also, they have a side yard, which means that you can go from front to back without either going through the house or around the block (for example, with your lawnmower). A few are on cross alleys which provide a little more parking.

In some neighborhoods the end-of-group houses are about 6 to 8 feet wider, have an additional bedroom, and side yards.

But like HandsUpThumbsDown said, the middle units are more energy efficient. We have both middle unit and end-of-group rentals and the middle units can run $100 less per month to cool in the summer and $150 - 200 less per month to heat in the winter.

I'll say that as a general rule of thumb, yes they are.

the side could be a street...so no side yards.
