Understanding Burleson property appreciation

Real estate prices are continually changing. Normally, house values appreciate in the long term. But there are no "sure things" in real estate, of course.

When your property appreciates you have more resources to borrow against, and you make a better profit when you sell. There are numerous reasons why property values in Burleson move up and down. So, how can you be sure what you're purchasing now will appreciate over time? Choosing a real estate agent in Burleson who recognizes the factors that affect local prices is the most important element.

The economy is believed to be the major factor impacting real estate appreciation. Obviously, there are a handful of factors on a national level that influence your property's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, business growth, and more. However, your home's value and the aspects that play the most significant role in its appreciation are specific to the local Burleson economy and housing market.

Real estate sales trends - What's the time on market? What was the selling price compared to the listing price? A lot of data can be obtained from public records, but a good agent with access to the local MLS will often provide a more complete picture.

History of appreciation - In the last 5-10 years, have property prices gone up or down? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the area is considered?

The local economy - Are local businesses hiring? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Is there a nice blend of business in an area, or does it rely on just one industry? Is the blend of commercial and residential zoning changing? Each of these things plays a role.
