Understanding Orlando home prices

Home prices are continually changing. Home values appreciate in the long term almost always. But, of course, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your home appreciates you have a greater asset to borrow against, and you make a greater profit when you sell. But how do you know what you're purchasing this year will appreciate over time? Property values in Orlando go up and down for numerous reasons. It's critical that you pick a real estate agent in Orlando who can identify the factors that affect local prices.

What is the most influential factor impacting real estate appreciation? Many assume that it's the economy. Clearly, there are many issues on a national level that change your house's value: unemployment, interest rates, inflation, and more. However, your home's value and the factors that play the biggest role in its appreciation are particular to the local Orlando economy and housing market.

Prior home sales - What's the time on market? What was the final sales amount compared to the listing price? A lot of data can be retrieved from public records, but a good agent with access to the local MLS will usually provide a more complete picture.

History of appreciation - In the past 5 to 10 years, have house prices increased or decreased? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the neighborhood is thought to be?

The local economy - Are local businesses hiring? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Is there a fair blend of jobs in an area, or does it count on just one industry? Is the blend of commercial and residential development changing? All these play a role.
