Fluctuating home prices in Naples, Florida: What causes this?

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

When your home appreciates you have a larger asset to borrow against, and you'll generate a larger profit when you sell. But how will you be sure what you're buying today will appreciate over time? Property values in Naples change for a variety of reasons. The most important factor is that you choose a REALTOR® in Naples who can identify the factors that influence local prices.

Many believe that the economy is the top factor impacting real estate appreciation. Naturally, there are some issues on a national level that alter your property's value: unemployment, interest rates, the stock market, and more. However, your home's value and the features that play the biggest role in its appreciation depend on the local Naples economy and housing market.

Recent home sales - You should receive statistics on the recent real estate sales in the neighborhoods that you'd like to live in from your real estate agent. You'll want to learn data like how long a house stays on the market and asking price as opposed to selling price.

The appreciation history - Is the neighborhood believed to be desirable because of its location or affordability? Have property prices increased or decreased over the last 5-10 years?

The local economy - Are local companies hiring? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Is there a nice mixture of work in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Is the blend of commercial and residential zoning changing? Each of these items plays a part.
