Miami home prices: Need some help understanding why they appreciate?

Home prices are forever in flux. Over a long enough period of time, home values typically appreciate. But, in real estate there are no guarantees.

When your house appreciates you have a bigger asset to borrow against, and you'll generate a greater profit when you sell. There are many different reasons why property values in Miami rise and fall. So, how will you know what you're buying today will appreciate over time? Choosing an agent in Miami who recognizes the factors that influence local prices is the most important element to consider.

What is my home worth?

A lot of people guess that the economy is the greatest factor impacting real estate appreciation. Obviously, interest rates, employment, business growth, government programs and several other national determinants have a measurable effect on your home's value. But the most influential things that decide your property's value are specific to the local Miami economy and housing market.
