Over time, the worth of a home will fluctuate up and down. Over a long enough period of time, house values , by and large, appreciate. But there is always a certain amount of risk in real estate.

When your house appreciates you have a bigger asset to borrow against, and you'll realize a higher profit when you sell. Property values in San Diego rise and fall for different reasons, so how will you know what you're investing in this year won't depreciate the day after you close? The most important part is that you pick a REALTOR® in San Diego who can identify the factors that influence local prices.

What is my home worth?

Many think that the economy is the top factor affecting real estate appreciation. It goes without saying that mortgage rates, unemployment, job growth, government programs and several other national factors have a measurable influence on your property's worth. However, your house's value and the elements that play the biggest role in its appreciation are specific to the local San Diego economy and housing market.

So when it comes to keeping their value, these areas typically appreciate much more reliably than areas lacking key features.

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

The appreciation history - Is the community thought of as desirable because of its location or affordability? Have property prices gone up or down over the past 5-10 years?

Economic factors - Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Is there a fair blend of business in an area, or does it count on just one industry? These items play a role.
