In recent years, national home values have largely increased partly because interest rates have decreased. It’s difficult to ascertain whether these trends will continue, but buyers and sellers alike are taking advantage of the current market, and the number of home transactions is on the rise. However, targeting the “best” real estate markets can be difficult, particularly since markets can change with little warning. After all, areas of peak interest now may not be hot markets in the coming months or years. This is sometimes due to unforeseen economic events.
The market value of a home can change over time, as well, according to certain factors both inside and outside the home itself. For example, market value can be adversely affected by foreclosure rates, inflation or deflation, zoning changes, high property turnover or other site-influencing factors. Other factors can increase the market value of a specific area, such as proximity to golf courses or scenic view. Conversely, proximity to freeways or railroads could constrain values. In many cases, a careful analysis of an area is as important as evaluation of a specific property.
