Naples home prices: Need some help understanding why they appreciate?

Over time, the value of a home will go up and down. For the most part, house values appreciate in the long term. But, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your property appreciates you have a more valuable asset to borrow against, and you'll generate a better profit when you sell. There is a variety of reasons why property values in Naples waver. So, how can you be sure what you're buying now will appreciate over time? It's important that you choose a REALTOR® in Naples who is familiar with the factors that influence local prices.

Obviously, there are several factors on a national level that impact your property's value: unemployment, interest rates, the stock market, and more.
