Although it's hard to put an exact dollar amount on it, it does add a great deal of value to a home. Of course it&nbsp; also depends on several factors. If all the homes in the area have views, then it won't add much compared to your neighbors. However, if great views are scarce, buyers will typically pay more.</strong><br/><strong>I can't tell you how much more, but we find that buyers of higher priced homes prefer good views and good schools.</strong><br/><strong>Location is by far the most important factor affecting a home's value.</strong><br/><br/><strong><em>[self promotion deleted by Zillow moderator. please see our Good Neighbor Policy for posting guidelines]</em><br/></strong></div><br \><br \>6 replies Thu, 30 Oct 2014 22:24:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Do-buyers-pay-more-for-a-view-Yes/564893/ 2014-10-30T22:24:00Z Union Bank EOP Program http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Union-Bank-EOP-Program/554630/ Hi,<br/>We are first-time home buyers and my husband's income is $90,000 and I am working part-time. Since it has not been 2 years I am working on part-time status, we have come to know that my income cannot be counted against the loan. In that case, my husband's income will only be considered for applying loan. I was researching online and found that we are eligible to get a loan from Union bank with this income through their EOP program. They provide loan at 4.875% interest rate.&nbsp;<br/>1)&nbsp;Want to know if that's a good option for us as I thought we might get lower interest rates with other banks<br/>2) Has anyone used them and how is your experience?<br/>3) Are there any other options available to us.
