What is External Obsolescence?
External obsolescence is defined as a loss in value caused by negative influences outside site. This video real estate appraiser Michael Walsh comes across a home with severe external obsolescence due to railroad tracks. There's an old saying in real estate at the three most important things are location, location, and location. In this video we have a nice customhouse that was built backing up to railroad tracks. A terrible location.
