Understanding Piedmont property appreciation

Home prices are continually changing. Over a long enough period of time, home values , by and large, appreciate. But, in real estate there are no "sure things".

When your home appreciates you have a more valuable asset to borrow against, and you get a larger profit when you sell. There are different reasons why property values in Piedmont vary. So, how can you be sure what you're purchasing this year will appreciate over time? It's critical that you choose a real estate agent in Piedmont who knows the factors that influence local prices.

What is the biggest factor impacting real estate appreciation? Many guess that it's the economy. After all, interest rates, unemployment, business growth, government programs and a lot of other national determinants have a measurable effect on your house's worth. However, your house's value and the things that play the most significant role in its appreciation depend on the local Piedmont economy and housing market.
