Medway home prices: Need some help understanding why they appreciate?

Over time, the worth of a house will fluctuate up and down. Property values appreciate in the long term generally. But, of course, in real estate there are no guarantees.

When your home appreciates you have a more valuable asset to borrow against, and you make a larger profit when you sell. Property values in Medway move up and down for various reasons, so how can you be sure what you're buying now won't depreciate the day after you close? The most important aspect is that you select a REALTOR® in Medway who is familiar with the factors that affect local prices.

Many assume that the economy is the greatest factor impacting real estate appreciation. After all, mortgage rates, unemployment, business growth, government programs and several other national factors have a noticeable influence on your property's value. But the most important things that determine your home's value depend on the local Medway economy and housing market.
