Hi

Could I request your take on these two sentences?

  1. Worth of the property in this area came down after the flood.
  2. Property worth in this area came down after the flood.
  3. Property's worth in this area came down after the flood.

Thanks,

Tom

None of those is natural.

I would say "Property prices/values in this area fell after the flood".

In the US it's 'property values', and Google Ngrams shows that as the most common phrase if you check just "English" without specifying which variety.

The property values in this area came down after the flood. (This recently happened in my neighborhood.)

The phrase "property prices" is very common in the UK.

CalifJimif Google is to be believed, proportionally the version with "values" predominates, at least in books

Yes, I looked at that graph, but I am not particularly convinced that it reflects frequency in general BrE usage. If I had to guess, I would put "property prices" a little ahead of "property values" in frequency. This is just my personal impression.
