Fluctuating Home Prices in Tallahassee

Property prices are continually changing. For the most part, property values appreciate in the long term. But, in real estate there are no "sure things".

When your home appreciates you have a larger asset to borrow against, and you'll produce a larger profit when you sell. But how will you know what you're buying right now will appreciate over time? Property values in Tallahassee change for many different reasons. Choosing a real estate agent in Tallahassee who understands the factors that affect local prices is the most important part.

What is the most critical factor impacting real estate appreciation? Many guess that it's the economy. Clearly, mortgage rates, unemployment, business growth, government programs and numerous other national determinants have a measurable effect on your property's worth. But the most important things that determine your home's value are particular to the local Tallahassee economy and residential market. Ask us for a complimentary quarterly "Supply of Homes" - an absorption rate chart that is a good indicator of supply & demand in the Tallahassee area.  Demand can drive appreciation.
