We found the silver lining to that news that came out back in January about Walmart closing some of its locations permanently--at least for those of you who live near a Target.
Although choosing a home near either is a great investment, it’s actually Target that will get you a bigger increase in home value according to a new survey. An online real estate information company called RealityTrac looked at home values, property taxes, and appreciation in zip codes that featured a location of both superstores to see which stacked up as the better investment.
Good ol’ Tarjay took the crown with a 27% average increase compared to the 16% average increase seen by people who sold homes near Walmart. (Although at those numbers, either location is a win.) So even if your go-to grocery shopping location closed earlier this year, we wouldn’t consider this one a loss.
