What causes Myrtle Beach home prices to fluctuate?

Over time, the worth of a piece of real estate will go up and down. Property values appreciate in the long term typically. But, of course, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your home appreciates you have a greater asset to borrow against, and you'll realize a greater profit when you sell. But how do you know what you're purchasing today will appreciate over time? Property values in Myrtle Beach change for numerous reasons. Choosing a REALTOR® in Myrtle Beach who knows the factors that affect local prices is the most important factor.

What is my home worth?

What is the most important factor impacting real estate appreciation? Many are convinced that it's the economy. Naturally, there are several factors on a national level that affect your property's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, business growth, and more. But the most important factors that decide your home's value depend on the local Myrtle Beach economy and housing market.

The appreciation history - Is the area thought of as desirable because of its location or affordability? Have home prices risen or declined over the past 5 to 10 years?

Economic factors - Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Is there a fair combination of job types in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? These items play a role.
