Does the variety of species of birds in your backyard affect your house’s value? According to a report by researchers at Texas Tech University, it does, particularly if you have less common birds perching on your fence. The difference between the value of a house with one less common bird species (the researchers mentioned blue jays and kingbirds for the area of Lubbock, Texas, they were studying) and a house with two was $32,028. At least one attraction for birds is a varied ecosystem with different kinds of trees and shrubs.
