What causes Murphy home prices to fluctuate?

Over time, the worth of a house will fluctuate up and down. Over a long enough period of time, home values almost always go up. But, of course, there is always a certain amount of risk in real estate.

When your home appreciates you have a bigger asset to borrow against, and you make a larger profit when you sell. But how can you be sure what you're buying now will appreciate over time? Property values in Murphy shift for different reasons. The most important aspect is that you choose a REALTOR® in Murphy who knows the factors that affect local prices.

A lot of people guess that the economy is the number one factor affecting real estate appreciation. Naturally, there are some factors on a national level that affect your house's value: unemployment, interest rates, quarterly earnings reports, and more. But the most important factors that figure your home's value depend on the local Murphy economy and residential market.
