You've heard the old saying, "Location, Location, Location." The truth is "Location, Condition and Price." And Price trumps every other factor.
Location affects the value of a property, but it's price that will sell it. The most desirable location in the world won't sell at the wrong price. A good location will sell at a fair price. A bad location will sell at a fair price too. It just won't be as high as it would be for a good location.
A home/cottage in good condition will sell at a fair price. A home/cottage in poor condition will also sell at a fair price, it just won't be as high as a comparable home/cottage in good condition.
However, with the exception of value in use, neither location or condition will sell any home/cottage. Only one thing does that - Price!
