Understanding Murphy home prices

Over time, the worth of a property will fluctuate up and down. Property values appreciate in the long term by and large. But, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your house appreciates you have a larger asset to borrow against, and you'll make a larger profit when you sell. There are numerous reasons why property values in Murphy fluctuate. So, how can you be sure what you're investing in today will appreciate over time? It's imperative that you select a REALTOR® in Murphy who is familiar with the factors that influence local prices.

The economy is thought to be the top factor affecting real estate appreciation. It goes without saying that there are quite a few issues on a national level that impact your property's value: unemployment, interest rates, the stock market, and more. But the most significant things that figure your property's value depend on the local Murphy economy and housing market.

The latest home sales - What's the time on market? Are sellers needing to discount much? A lot of data can often 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 last 5 to 10 years, have property prices risen or declined? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the community is considered?

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