Understanding Reno home prices

Over time, the value of a home will fluctuate up and down. Home values appreciate in the long term in most cases. But, of course, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your property appreciates you have a bigger asset to borrow against, and you'll generate a better profit when you sell. There is a variety of reasons why property values in Reno change. So, how do you know what you're investing in presently will appreciate over time? Choosing an agent in Reno who can identify the factors that influence local prices is the most important aspect to consider.

Many guess that the economy is the number one factor affecting real estate appreciation. Naturally, interest rates, employment, business growth, government programs and a lot of other national factors have a measurable influence on your house's worth. But the most influential things that figure your house's value are specific to the local Reno economy and residential market.

Recent home sales - You should receive information on the recent real estate sales in the areas that you're asking about from your real estate agent. You'll need to know figures like how long a house stays on the market and listing price as opposed to selling price.

The appreciation history - Is the area considered desirable because of its location or affordability? Have property prices gone up or down over the past 5 to 10 years?

Local economy - Is there a good mix of job types in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Each of these pieces plays a part.
