Home values are continually changing.
Over a long enough period of time, house values normally appreciate.
But, of course, there is always a certain amount of risk in real estate.
When your house appreciates you have a more valuable asset to borrow against, and you'll generate a bigger profit when you sell.
There are different reasons why property values in Englewood move up and down. So, how do you know what you're buying this year will appreciate over time?
The most important factor to consider is that you choose an agent in Englewood who knows the factors that affect local prices.
A lot of people think that the economy is the number one factor affecting real estate appreciation.
It goes without saying that
there are numerous issues on a national level that alter your house's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, business growth, and more.
However, your house's value and the things that play the biggest role in its appreciation are particular to the local Englewood economy and housing market.
Location in a community - People typically want homes in the areas with the best and most convenient places we go often or everyday, such as our schools and work.
So when it comes to holding their value, these regions often appreciate much more reliably than areas lacking key features.
Recent sales - Your REALTOR® should give you figures on the recent home sales in the regions that you're asking about. You'll want to know average time on market, selling versus listing price and more.
The appreciation history - Is the area thought of as desirable because of its location or affordability? Have home prices gone up or down over the last 5 to 10 years?
Local economy - Is there a nice mixture of job types in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local businesses hiring?
These items play a part.
