A lot of people think that the economy is the most crucial factor impacting real estate appreciation. Naturally, mortgage rates, unemployment, business growth, government programs and a handful of other national determinants have a noticeable influence on your home’s value. But the most significant issues that figure your house’s value are particular to the local economy and residential market.

Location in a community – Convenient access to schools, jobs and amenities like shopping, restaurants and entertainment is important to many families and will greatly influence home values. So when it comes to holding their value, these areas usually appreciate the best.
