What causes Burlington home prices to fluctuate?

Real estate values are continually changing. Over a long enough period of time, property values , for the most part, go up. But, in real estate there is always a certain amount of risk.

When your house appreciates you have more equity to borrow against, and you'll make a higher profit when you sell. Property values in Burlington waver for different reasons, so how will you know what you're purchasing right now won't depreciate the day after you close? The most important element is that you select a real estate agent in Burlington who is familiar with the factors that drive local prices.

Many guess that the economy is the biggest factor impacting real estate appreciation. After all, interest rates, unemployment, business growth, government programs and several other national factors have a definite impact on your property's value. But the most significant things that figure your home's value are specific to the local Burlington economy and housing market.
