Fluctuating home prices in Cypress, Texas: What causes this?

Real estate prices are continually changing. Home values appreciate in the long term typically. But, of course, in real estate there are no guarantees.

When your home appreciates you have more resources to borrow against, and you'll make a greater profit when you sell. But how can you be sure what you're buying this year will appreciate over time? Property values in Cypress rise and fall for various reasons. Choosing a REALTOR® in Cypress who recognizes the factors that influence local prices is the most important factor to consider.

Many believe that the economy is the top factor impacting real estate appreciation. It goes without saying that there are numerous issues on a national level that affect your home's value: unemployment, interest rates, quarterly earnings reports, and more. But the most influential issues that decide your home's value are specific to the local Cypress economy and housing market.

Real estate sales trends - What's the time on market? What was the final sales amount versus the asking price? Some information can often be retrieved from public records, but a good agent with access to the local MLS will often be able to provide a more complete picture.

History of appreciation - In the last 5 to 10 years, have house prices risen or declined? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the neighborhood is believed to be?

The local economy - Are local companies hiring? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Is there a nice blend of job types in an area, or does it depend on just one industry? Is the mix of commercial and residential zoning changing? Each of these things plays a role.
