Taxation zoning, government development, and economic stability play a role in the longevity of real estate. Changes to zoning within a town or city can affect the value of a property, making it more, or less, valuable. Increased taxation in the center of the city will decrease the value of residential property there, it becomes cheaper for residents to live outside the center and commute. Likewise, rezoning part of an area, previously classed as residential, to industrial development may decrease the value of adjacent residential areas. Conversely, it could also increase property levels by introducing a new employment hub.
Abstract Whether it is a house, apartment, bungalow or some other dwelling, homes are very important to the people who live in them. The architectural design of these homes often times can affect how we behave and how we relate to others. This study focuses on how the architectural design of houses impacts social behavior. It looks to symbolic interactionism to examine this topic further and finds that, people who live in homes that have been designed to take into consideration their personal preferences will be happier because, architecture reflects and expresses self, architectural symbols affect our environment, and designed physical buildings act as agents that invite self-reflection. To examine this topic, research of existing sources
Just hearing the word neighborhood is enough to bring anyone back to childhood memories, and there is a nostalgic sense behind the word neighborhood. In the physical sense, a neighborhood is the grouping of homes that make up the demographics in which a person resides. Neighborhoods are also considered a social community in which a person feels a sense of identity and belonging. Often within neighborhoods, the members share common interests, values, characteristics and economic status. Because residents share the same small community and living area, they also share many of the same concerns regarding safety, education, and crime within their community or neighborhood.
Certain goals for urban life were stated and to achieve these goals, five prerequisites of a ‘sound’ urban environment were identified. Jacobs & Appleyard suggested seven goals ‘essential for the future of a good urban environment’: • LIVEABILITY – A city should be a place where everyone can live in relative comfort. •IDENTITY AND CONTROL – People should feel that some part of the environment belongs to them, individually and collectively – some part for which they care and are responsible, whether they own it or not. • ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITIES, IMAGINATION AND JOY – People should find the city a place where they can break from traditional moulds, extend their experience, meet new people, learn other viewpoints, and have fun • AUTHENTICITY AND MEANING – People should be able to understand their city (or other people 's cities), its basic layout, public functions and institutions; they should be aware of its opportunities. •COMMUNITY AND PUBLIC LIFE – Cities should encourage participation of their citizens in community and public life.
Previous studies have discussed the role of interest rates in determining house price. The majority of these papers identify interest rates as the most important explanatory variable. One early study is Abraham and Hendershott (1992). Using pooled cross-sectional data on metropolitan house prices in the US between 1977 and 1991, they find that macroeconomic factors including interest rates and employment are significant in influencing house prices. Iacoviello and Minetti (2003) argue that, over time, house prices became more sensitive to interest rate changes due to financial liberalisation in European countries including the UK.
At first the concept of the neighbourhood unit was restricted to mean a settlement with no special social, economic, and political meaning. As the concept of the neighbourhood emerged, certain defining characteristics became apparent. Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary defines it as “people living near one another.”  When people live together long enough to become well acquainted, certain community characteristics appear. There was at first no political structure, but certain unifying characteristics on the social, economic and physical levels were evident. For example, neighbours were friends, relatives, or business associates.
3). The impact of the social environment in the home on early childhood development Vygotsky’s sociocultural theory encompasses the view that values, beliefs, skills and traditions are transmitted from one generation to the next. He, unlike behaviorist theorists, emphasized that family, social interaction, and play are primary influences in a child’s life (Gordon & Browne, 2013). The social environment at home has a profound impact on how children develop. Children learn whether to trust or
The Impact of Affordable Housing on Communties. Introduction One of the issues that could face people is the rising of the house prices and the corrupted housing system. Also, what a person accustomed to pay to fulfill his/her house needs not as before, but increased, that is why people start seeking to find a proper home they can afford. Consequently, the question that comes to mind is does affordable house affect communities? Beyond any doubt, the affordable and stable housing can affect positively the community, and this can be recognized by seeing the changes in lives and communities.
The key factor is that residential property is sufficiently differentiable and not subject to any sort of perishibility or technological obsolescence such that developers have much more flexibility with the timing of producing and selling their end product. 2. Threat of new entrants (Neutral to Unfavorable) When an industry has over 60,000 registered participants, it is hard to conclude that barriers to entry are high. Although the number of entrants varies over time and according to market condition, they are sufficiently low
(Noonan 2005; Programme et al. 2010) 2.2.2 Matter on neighbours A high turnover rate of residents will happen at particular area especially nearby a university or school which it will impacts upon various sustainability aspects of the residential community network which are now explored in turn. Smith et al. (1982) suggests that older neighbourhoods are less likely to support different types of people in proximity to each other, especially those young people. According to Smith et al.
