Going Local

You may have heard the adage that ‘’every market is different.’’ But do you know why ? Here’s a look at just a few of the many factors that make every real estate market unique.


  • Which kinds of properties are – and will be – in demand in any particular market? That depends, in part, on its demographic characteristics, such as age, income, family size, growth rate, and migration patterns. For example, if retirees are flocking to a particular area, demand for condos there might increase. And as demand increases, so will prices.


  • This is relative to the supply side of the equation; that is, how many properties are available for purchase? Whether a particular community is experiencing a buyer’s market or a seller’s market largely depends on inventory levels.
  • The job market. Back to the demand side of the equation, is the local job base growing or shrinking ? In the markets experiencing job growth, demand for housing tends to be higher and, in turn, property values increase. Conversely, if a major local employer closes its doors, for example, the demand for and value of properties may decline.
