My father was a civil engineer, and I spent much of my childhood weekends touring construction and new house sites. When my husband and I were househunting I remember our realtor commenting that the things I paid attention to were not what most women looked at. I did internalize not to ever purchase a house that was lower that street level. Water might have been one reason, but also that people just didn’t regard that as attractive, so resale value was diminished.
