Ugly street furniture


[link to this post]
 
So I saw a thread noting some rather interesting placement of street furniture and potential for loss of value of the home nearby.

Thought it'd be entertaining to see if anyone else has examples. I'll start with one that's not as egregious in terms of safety and placement but in terms of density of furniture - the person who owns the property in the shot can't be especially delighted!

The houses are nothing to write home about either. Think the cabinets are a perfect match.
Seriously though, any property that doesn't have access to fast internet will find in the next few years that they will be difficult to sell. Might even be the case now. That will be the cause of loss of value.
Personally I wouldn't even look at a property that hasn't got at least FTTC available.

Same here, though I'm not sure my wife would agree! Once you have it there is no way back.

It's true... we are currently looking around for new house and we saw a house that ticks all of our boxes apart from one thing.

The speed of Internet.

I need fast internet so I can work from home.

Wife need fast Internet access so she can do her online shopping & stream videos (i.e. Netflix, etc) as she's a housewife.

The house we liked only had the max speed of 1MB ADSL. So we didn't go for it. (no plans to upgrade to Fibre till 2016-17)

So yes, it does affect selling houses if they do not have a fast Internet access. Our current house have the full 80/20 and I plan to promote it to the buyers about it so they know they can get the full speed if needed.

Oh she does, but she probably still would on slow ADSL or mobile!

Some ugly, utilitarian boxes that all look the same, nobody living in the area wanted.

And some telecom cabinets that some residents of said boxes heavily campaigned for.
