Understanding Sherman Oaks home prices

Real estate prices are forever in flux. Over a long enough period of time, property values normally go up. But there is always a certain amount of risk in real estate.

When your home appreciates you have more resources to borrow against, and you'll generate a better profit when you sell. But how do you know what you're investing in this year will appreciate over time? Property values in Sherman Oaks waver for numerous reasons. It's important that you go with a REALTOR® in Sherman Oaks who knows the factors that drive local prices.

What is my home worth?

The economy is assumed to be the major factor affecting real estate appreciation. After all, interest rates, unemployment, business growth, government programs and some other national determinants have a noticeable effect on your house's worth. But the most influential issues that decide your property's value are specific to the local Sherman Oaks economy and residential market.

Let Charise Michell, Estate Agent, Wish Sotheby’s International Realty, CalBRE#01425090 help you with your first home purchase in Sherman Oaks Location in a community - Many home buyers choose to live in areas with the most conducive features for households to develop, like a close proximity to schools, jobs, and work. So those communities generally appreciate, or hold their value consistently, year to year.

Recent sales - Your agent should provide you with data on the recent home sales in the neighborhoods that you're asking about. You'll want to know average time on market, selling versus listing price and more.

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

Local economy - Is there a fair blend of work in an area, or does it rely upon just one industry? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local businesses hiring? Each of these things plays a part.
