Utility, in the context of real estate, refers to the value an item has based on its ability to perform a desired function. It's about how useful something is and how well it meets a person's needs and wants. The more useful an item is, the more utility it has, and the more valuable it becomes.
For example, a house with a well-designed floor plan, energy-efficient features, and modern amenities has a high utility for potential buyers. They find the house more valuable because it meets their needs and desires better than a house with a less functional layout and outdated features.

In the world of value, utility's key,
It measures how useful, an item can be.
A house or a building, with features so grand,
Fulfills all our needs, just as we planned.
A home with a layout, so clever and bright,
Has utility soaring, a value in flight.
It meets our desires, with function and flair,
The more utility, the more people care.
Utility's simple, a measure we see,
Of how well an item, fulfills every need.
As you study for your exam, keep in mind,
Utility's important, and value we'll find.
