Real estate prices are continually changing.
Over a long enough period of time, home values almost always appreciate.
But there is always a certain amount of risk in real estate, of course.
When your property appreciates you have more resources to borrow against, and you'll produce a bigger profit when you sell.
Property values in Medway move up and down for different reasons, so how do you know what you're buying today won't depreciate the day after you close?
Choosing an agent in Medway who knows the factors that affect local prices is the most important aspect to consider.
What is the biggest factor affecting real estate appreciation? Many are convinced that it's the economy.
It goes without saying that
there are several factors on a national level that adjust your house's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, the stock market, and more.
But the most significant things that figure your property's value are specific to the local Medway economy and residential market.
Location in a community - Proximity to work and schools also have a great effect on all home buyers' choices.
So when it comes to retaining their value, these areas consistently appreciate better than others.
Recent sales - Your REALTOR® should give you figures on the recent home sales in the districts that you're asking about. You'll want to know average time on market, selling versus listing price and more.
Appreciation history - Have property prices increased or decreased over the last 5-10 years? Is the neighborhood thought to be desirable because of its location or affordability?
Local economy - Is there a nice combination of jobs in an area, or does it depend on just one industry? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local businesses hiring?
These items play a part.
