Englewood home prices: Need some help understanding why they appreciate?

Over time, the worth of a piece of real estate will fluctuate up and down. Property values appreciate in the long term almost always. But, of course, in real estate there are no "sure things".

When your house appreciates you have more resources to borrow against, and you'll realize a better profit when you sell. Property values in Englewood vary for various reasons, so how do you know what you're purchasing today won't depreciate the day after you close? It's critical that you choose a real estate agent in Englewood who knows the factors that influence local prices.
