This explanation is incorrect. Houses aren’t numbered in a row so the number of houses along a street is irrelevant. The odd numbers are on the opposite side of the street from the even numbered ones. Thus his whole hypothesis is flawed. It is more likely that for example the south side of the street is more desirable, or maybe the west for example.
Also, his explanation at the end where he says that the streets that are all even or all odd tend to cancel each other out and bring the value back to 0.502 is incorrect. They would tend to bring the value to 0.500. If those streets were ignored, then the probability of living in an odd numbered house would actually be greater than 0.502.
