Local Selling Tips < >

Real estate values are continually changing. Over a long enough period of time, property values, for the most part, go up. But, of course, there are no "sure things" in real estate.

When your house appreciates you have a more valuable asset to borrow against, and you'll create a bigger profit when you sell. But how will you know what your property is truly valued at so that it can be priced competitive to the current market? Contact a Professional REALTOR®. The most important thing is that you pick one in the local area who can identify the factors that drive local trends and prices.

What is the major factor impacting real estate appreciation? Many guess that it's the economy. Clearly, there are quite a few factors on a national level that adjust your home's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, quarterly earnings reports, and more. But the most significant issues that decide your house's value depend on the local Sevierville / Douglas Lake economy and residential market.

Access to services - People typically want homes in the districts with the best and most convenient places we go often or every day, like our schools, jobs, and shopping and recreation. So these areas typically appreciate, or carry their value consistently, year to year.

The latest home sales - You should receive figures on the recent real estate sales in the neighborhoods that you're asking about from your REALTOR®. You'll need to learn things like how long a house stays on the market and seller discounts.

Appreciation history - Have property prices risen or declined over the past 5-10 years? Is the neighborhood thought to be desirable because of its location or affordability?

Local economy - Is there a fair mixture of business in an area, or does it rely on just one industry? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Are local businesses hiring? Each of these elements plays a role.

Knowing the factors that play into your home's financial worth is important. Get an estimation of your property's value.  And if you have any questions, call mes at 865.898.6060 or e-mail meat patmorgan@c21mvp.com.
