Home Appreciation

Understanding Property Appreciation

 Over time, the worth of a piece of real estate will fluctuate up and down. Property values appreciate in the long term normally. But there are no guarantees in real estate.

When your house appreciates you have a larger asset to borrow against, and you make a higher profit when you sell. But how will you be sure what you’re buying presently will appreciate over time? Property values in Southern Pines fluctuate for a variety of reasons. The most important aspect is that you pick a REALTOR® in Southern Pines who knows the factors that drive local prices.

What is the most important factor affecting real estate appreciation? Many are convinced that it’s the economy. Clearly, there are numerous issues on a national level that change your home’s value: unemployment, mortgage rates, business growth, and more. But the most influential factors that determine your property’s value are specific to the local southern Pines economy and housing market.

Access to services – Convenient access to schools, jobs, and amenities like shopping, restaurants and entertainment is a big deal to many families and will greatly influence home values. So when it comes to holding their value, these regions typically appreciate the best.

The latest home sales – You should receive facts and figures on the recent real estate sales in the neighborhoods that you’re asking about from your real estate agent. You’ll want to learn data like how long a house stays on the market and seller discounts.

History of appreciation – In the past 5-10 years, have property prices gone up or down? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the neighborhood is believed to be?

Local economy – Is there a nice combination of job types in an area, or does it depend on just one industry? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? All these play a role.
