Understanding Central Florida home prices

Real estate prices are forever in flux. Over a long enough period of time, house values , for the most part, go up. But there are no guarantees in real estate.

When your home appreciates you have a more valuable asset to borrow against, and you'll produce a larger profit when you sell. Property values  shift for numerous reasons, so how will you know what you're purchasing this year won't depreciate the day after you close? It's critical that you choose a REALTOR®     who knows the factors that affect local prices.

A lot of people assume that the economy is the most critical factor impacting real estate appreciation. It goes without saying that mortgage rates, unemployment, job growth, government programs and many other national factors have a noticeable effect on your property's worth. However, your property's value and the factors that play the biggest role in its appreciation depend on the local economy and housing market.

Appreciation history - Have home prices risen or declined over the last 5-10 years? Is the neighborhood considered desirable because of its location or affordability?

The local economy - Are local businesses hiring? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Is there a fair blend of job types in an area, or does it rely on just one industry? Is the blend of commercial and residential zoning changing? These items play a part.
