What causes Orlando home prices to fluctuate?

Over time, the worth of a home will fluctuate up and down. Property values appreciate in the long term normally. But there are no "sure things" in real estate, of course.

When your home appreciates you have more resources to borrow against, and you'll see a greater profit when you sell. There are many different reasons why property values in Orlando shift. So, how will you be sure what you're purchasing now will appreciate over time? It's critical that you choose a REALTOR® in Orlando who is familiar with the factors that drive local prices.

A lot of people believe that the economy is the most important factor impacting real estate appreciation. It goes without saying that mortgage rates, employment, job growth, government programs and some other national factors have a measurable effect on your home's worth. But the most influential factors that decide your house's value are particular to the local Orlando economy and housing market.

Let RE/MAX Town Centre help you with your first home purchase in Orlando Location in a community - Many home buyers decide to live in regions with the most convenient features for households to thrive, such as a close proximity to schools, jobs, and work. So when it comes to retaining their value, these regions often appreciate much more reliably than areas lacking key features.

Recent sales - Your agent should give you statistics on the recent home sales in the areas that you'd like to live in. You'll want to know average time on market, selling versus listing price and more.

Appreciation history - Have home prices risen or declined over the last 5-10 years? Is the community thought to be desirable because of its location or affordability?

The local economy - Are local companies hiring? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Is there a nice mix of jobs in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Is the blend of commercial and residential development changing? All these play a part.
