Over time, the value of a property will go up and down.
Over a long enough period of time, property values , for the most part, go up.
But, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.
When your house appreciates you have a greater asset to borrow against, and you'll see a bigger profit when you sell.
Property values in BAKERSFIELD rise and fall for many different reasons, so how will you be sure what you're purchasing today won't depreciate the day after you close?
It's imperative that you go with an agent in BAKERSFIELD who knows the factors that drive local prices.
What is the biggest factor affecting real estate appreciation? Many are convinced that it's the economy.
mortgage rates, employment, business growth, government programs and many other national determinants have a definite effect on your property's value.
However, your house's value and the aspects that play the most significant role in its appreciation depend on the local BAKERSFIELD economy and housing market.
Access to services - Proximity to schools and work also have a major influence on most home buyers' decisions.
So when it comes to retaining their value, these regions usually appreciate better than others.
Recent home sales - You should receive figures on the recent real estate sales in the districts that you'd like to live in from your real estate agent. You'll want to learn data like time on market and seller discounts.
The appreciation history - Is the neighborhood considered desirable because of its location or affordability? Have home prices increased or decreased over the last 5 to 10 years?
Economic factors - Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Is there a nice mix of job types in an area, or does it rely on just one industry?
All these play a part.
