Home values are continually changing.
Property values appreciate in the long term by and large.
But there are no "sure things" in real estate.
When your property appreciates you have a bigger asset to borrow against, and you'll make a greater profit when you sell.
But how will you be sure what you're purchasing right now will appreciate over time? Property values in Lewis Center vary for different reasons.
It's critical that you go with a REALTOR® in Lewis Center who can identify the factors that affect local prices.
The economy is believed to be the most critical factor affecting real estate appreciation.
mortgage rates, unemployment, business growth, government programs and quite a few other national determinants have a noticeable influence on your home's worth.
But the most significant things that figure your property's value are specific to the local Lewis Center economy and residential market.
Location in a community - Proximity to schools and work also have a huge impact on many home buyers' choices.
So these areas often appreciate, or keep their value, best.
Recent sales - Your real estate agent should provide you with statistics on the recent home sales in the areas 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 neighborhood thought of as desirable because of its location or affordability? Have property prices gone up or down over the last 5-10 years?
The local economy - Are local companies hiring? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Is there a good blend of jobs in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Is the blend of commercial and residential development changing?
These items play a role.
