Real estate prices are constantly moving up and down.
Generally, property values appreciate in the long term.
But there are no guarantees in real estate, of course.
When your home appreciates you have more equity to borrow against, and you'll produce a larger profit when you sell.
Property values in Englewood rise and fall for a variety of reasons, so how can you be sure what you're purchasing presently won't depreciate the day after you close?
The most important factor to consider is that you choose an agent in Englewood who understands the factors that influence local prices.
Many think that the economy is the biggest factor impacting real estate appreciation.
It goes without saying that
mortgage rates, employment, job growth, government programs and quite a few other national determinants have a measurable effect on your home's value.
But the most significant factors that determine your property's value depend on the local Englewood economy and residential market.
Location in a community - Many of us wish to live in districts with the most conducive factors for households to do well, such as a close proximity to jobs and schools.
So these areas typically appreciate, or keep their value consistently, year to year.
The latest home sales - You should receive statistics on the recent real estate sales in the districts that you'd like to live in from your REALTOR®. You'll need to analyze things like time on market and asking price as opposed to selling price.
Appreciation history - Have property prices risen or declined over the last 5-10 years? Is the area believed to be desirable because of its location or affordability?
The local economy - Are local businesses hiring? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Is there a good mix of work in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Is the mix of commercial and residential development changing?
All these play a role.
