Understanding Greenville home prices

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

When your property appreciates you have a bigger asset to borrow against, and you'll produce a larger profit when you sell. Property values in Greenville fluctuate for numerous reasons, so how can you be sure what you're buying today won't depreciate the day after you close? Choosing a REALTOR® in Greenville who recognizes the factors that drive local prices is the most important thing.

What is the greatest factor affecting real estate appreciation? Many are convinced that it's the economy. After all, there are several factors on a national level that influence your home's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, consumer confidence, and more. But the most significant issues that figure your home's value depend on the local Greenville economy and residential market.

History of appreciation - In the last 5 to 10 years, have house prices increased or decreased? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the community is considered?

Economic factors - Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Is there a good mix of jobs in an area, or does it depend on just one industry? All these play a part.
