We think everyone would agree when we say that living within a quarter mile radius of a coffee shop or a restuarant is highly convenient. Who wouldn't enjoy not having to walk far for a caffeine fix or grabbing a quick bite on nights when you're too lazy to cook? 

It turns out, aside from the convenience, there's another benefit to residing near a Starbucks. New research suggests that proximity to the famous coffee shop can actually increase your home value. While proximity to school districts, additional floor space and well-maintained outdoor spaces are still the top things possible buyers look for, investing in property near a commercial space is a great bonus as it can appreciate over time.

However, the exact correlation between property value and proximity to these retailers isn’t crystal clear just. Some experts believe that the values may increase because of demand to live near these stores, but it’s also likely that retailers are choosing these particular areas for a reason we've yet to find out.
