Understanding Stratford property appreciation

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

When your house appreciates you have a more valuable asset to borrow against, and you'll create a better profit when you sell. But how can you be sure what you're purchasing presently will appreciate over time? Property values in Stratford waver for many different reasons. It's important that you select a REALTOR® in Stratford who recognizes the factors that drive local prices.


The economy is thought to be the greatest factor impacting real estate appreciation. Naturally, interest rates, employment, business growth, government programs and quite a few other national determinants have a measurable influence on your property's value. However, your home's value and the components that play the biggest role in its appreciation are specific to the local Stratford economy and housing market.

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