Fluctuating home prices: What causes this?

Fluctuating home prices: What causes this?

Real estate prices are constantly moving up and down. Almost always, home values appreciate in the long term. But, of course, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your property appreciates you have more equity to borrow against, and you’ll create a greater profit when you sell. Property values in the area shift for many different reasons, so how do you know what you’re buying right now won’t depreciate the day after you close? The most important thing is that you select a real estate agent in your area who knows the factors that influence local prices.

Let Legacy Real Estate Group help you with your first home purchase in Longmont Location in a community – Most people want homes in the areas with the easiest access to features, such as our work and schools. So when it comes to retaining their value, these regions often appreciate better than others.

Recent sales – Your real estate agent should provide you with figures on the recent real estate sales in the districts that you’re asking about. You’ll want to know average time on market, selling versus listing price and more.

History of appreciation – In the last 5 to 10 years, have home prices increased or decreased? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the neighborhood is believed to be?

Local economy – Is there a good blend of job types in an area, or does it count on just one industry? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Are local businesses hiring? Each of these items plays a part.
