Understanding Vista home prices

Property prices are constantly moving up and down. Over a long enough period of time, home values generally go up. But, of course, in real estate there are no "sure things".

When your home appreciates you have a greater asset to borrow against, and you'll create a bigger profit when you sell. Property values in Vista fluctuate for a variety of reasons, so how do you know what you're investing in today won't depreciate the day after you close? Choosing a REALTOR® in Vista who can identify the factors that drive local prices is the most important thing to consider.

What is the most influential factor impacting real estate appreciation? Many assume that it's the economy. Obviously, there are a lot of issues on a national level that alter your home's value: unemployment, interest rates, quarterly earnings reports, and more. But the most influential factors that determine your home's value are specific to the local Vista economy and residential market.

Recent sales - Your real estate agent should provide you with figures on the recent home sales in the districts that you'd like to live in. You'll want to know average time on market, selling versus listing price and more.

The appreciation history - Is the community thought of as desirable because of its location or affordability? Have property prices gone up or down over the last 5-10 years?

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