What is the most important factor impacting real estate appreciation? Many think that it's the economy.
It goes without saying that
there are many factors on a national level that impact your property's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, business growth, and more.
But the most significant factors that figure your property's value are particular to the local Colorado Springs economy and housing market.
Location in a community - Proximity to schools and jobs also have a great impact on most home buyers' choices.
So when it comes to holding their value, these communities typically appreciate much more reliably than areas lacking key features.
The latest home sales - You should receive statistics on the recent real estate sales in the neighborhoods that you'd like to live in from your agent. You'll want to analyze data like time on market and asking price versus selling price.
The appreciation history - Is the community thought to be desirable because of its location or affordability? Have home prices increased or decreased over the last 5-10 years?
The local economy - Are local businesses hiring? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Is there a nice mixture of business in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Is the blend of commercial and residential zoning changing?
All these play a role.
Knowing the factors that affect your home's value is important.
