Real estate values are forever in flux.
Home values appreciate in the long term almost always.
But, of course, there is always a certain amount of risk in real estate.
When your house appreciates you have more equity to borrow against, and you'll create a larger profit when you sell.
Property values in Yukon fluctuate for a variety of reasons, so how will you know what you're purchasing this year won't depreciate the day after you close?
The most important factor is that you choose a REALTOR® in Yukon who can identify the factors that affect local prices.
Many assume that the economy is the biggest factor affecting real estate appreciation.
interest rates, employment, job growth, government programs and a handful of other national factors have a noticeable influence on your property's worth.
But the most influential things that determine your home's value depend on the local Yukon economy and residential market.
Access to services - Convenient access to schools, employment and amenities like shopping, restaurants and entertainment is a big deal to many buyers and will greatly influence home values.
So when it comes to retaining their value, these communities generally appreciate the best.
The latest home sales - How long are homes up for sale before closing? What was the selling price versus the asking price? Some information can often be obtained from public records, but a good agent with access to the local MLS will often be able to provide a more complete picture.
Appreciation history - Have home prices risen or declined over the last 5 to 10 years? Is the area thought to be desirable because of its location or affordability?
The local economy - Are local businesses hiring? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Is there a fair mixture of business in an area, or does it rely on just one industry? Is the blend of commercial and residential development changing?
All these play a role.
