If I'm not living on the top floor I don't care. Actually, buildings without balconies tend to look better than (modern) buildings with so I might just be against them.

I wish I used mine more often. But I'm in a cold weather region. So for about s 4-5 months of the year it's not very comfortable.

I must have but I also think that, seen from outside, buildings look way better without them, I'm struggled

Must have. Like to sit outside and breathe fresh air.

Mi city, Mazatlán, in northwestern Mexico is so hot and humid during summers (now ) that a balcony in your house in esential!

It is also part of our architectural heritage, most of out historical buildings have balconies, they didnt had AC back in the time, so the balcony were like an AC:

It's a deal breaker for me. If it's not deep enough, lacks solid walls (glass isn't acceptable), or isn't shielded enough from wind I won't buy. I live in downtown Toronto so it's the only outdoor space of my own. I eat out there 5 months of the year so it needs to be suitable for dinner and friends (4 people minimum).

A small balcony to hang out washing is sufficient for me.

I'm not a fan of huge balconies that encourage outdoor entertaining - it means you have to put up with lots of noise from loud mouthed neighbours.
