Home Appreciation

What drives property values in Eastchester to move up and down?

Over time, the worth of a home will fluctuate up and down.

Almost always, house values appreciate in the long term.

But, of course, in real estate, there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your home appreciates you have a bigger asset to borrow against, and you make a larger profit when you sell.

There are many different reasons why property values in Eastchester rise and fall. So, how will you be sure what you’re investing in now will appreciate over time?


It’s critical that you select an agent in Eastchester who recognizes the factors that influence local prices.

A lot of people assume that the economy is the most influential factor impacting real estate appreciation.

Obviously, there are quite a few factors on a national level that change your property’s value: unemployment, interest rates, consumer confidence, and more.

However, your home’s value and the elements that play the most significant role in its appreciation are specific to the local Eastchester economy and housing market.

Access to services

Being close to schools, employment and amenities like shopping, restaurants and entertainment is a big deal to a lot of us and will greatly influence home values.

History of appreciation

In the past 5-10 years, have home prices risen or declined? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the neighborhood is believed to be?

Economic factors

Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Is there a fair blend of jobs in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry?

Each of these items plays a role.
