Over time, the value of a house will go up and down.
By and large, property values appreciate in the long term.
But, of course, in real estate there are no guarantees.
When your home appreciates you have a more valuable asset to borrow against, and you'll generate a greater profit when you sell.
There is a variety of reasons why property values in Englewood change. So, how do you know what you're purchasing now will appreciate over time?
The most important thing to consider is that you select a real estate agent in Englewood who knows the factors that influence local prices.
What is the most important factor affecting real estate appreciation? Many guess that it's the economy.
It goes without saying that
there are a handful of factors on a national level that affect your house's value: unemployment, interest rates, the stock market, and more.
But the most important things that decide your property's value are particular to the local Englewood economy and housing market.
Access to services - Most people want homes in the regions with the most useful features, such as our schools and work.
So when it comes to keeping their value, these regions usually appreciate much more reliably than areas lacking key features.
Recent home sales - What's the time on market? Are sellers needing to discount much? Some information can often be obtained from public records, but a good agent with a login to the local MLS will often provide a more complete picture.
The appreciation history - Is the area considered desirable because of its location or affordability? Have property prices risen or declined over the past 5-10 years?
Local economy - Is there a nice combination of jobs in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Are local businesses hiring?
All these play a role.
