Zillow Advice: Buying Process - I'm interested in a home that is 26' wide & 60' long; 26' faces the front. Will it have good resale http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-a-home-that-is-26%27-wide-60%27-long-26%27-faces-the-front-Will-it-have-good-resale/362756/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Tell us more information ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-a-home-that-is-26%27-wide-60%27-long-26%27-faces-the-front-Will-it-have-good-resale/362756/ Tell us more information about things like neighborhood and nearby schools that will help us answer, Mon, 23 Aug 2010 13:34:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-a-home-that-is-26%27-wide-60%27-long-26%27-faces-the-front-Will-it-have-good-resale/362756/ 2010-08-23T13:34:00Z it depends on what the person ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-a-home-that-is-26%27-wide-60%27-long-26%27-faces-the-front-Will-it-have-good-resale/362756/ it depends on what the person buying wants to do with it. &nbsp;from my experience builders want at least 50 feet of frontage, but of course that depends on municipal regulations Sun, 22 Aug 2010 20:46:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-a-home-that-is-26%27-wide-60%27-long-26%27-faces-the-front-Will-it-have-good-resale/362756/ 2010-08-22T20:46:00Z I have seen many 25x60 in ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-interested-in-a-home-that-is-26%27-wide-60%27-long-26%27-faces-the-front-Will-it-have-good-resale/362756/ I have seen many 25x60 in Hollywood Hills and they look pretty good with modern design. The surrounding and location is a value predicting factor on such home. Resale value is not going to be the same as the ones larger in width however the resale value won't be dramatically lower either. That is of course if they have the same square footage, bed+bath count, lot size etc...

Good luck! Jim,HSOA.

It's based on square footage, # of bedrooms/baths, year built, condition, lot size, amenities, etc., relative to the value of comparable houses in the immediate vicinity.<br/><br/>Is this a mobile home by any chance?
