Size

A home’s value is commonly estimated at a price per square foot. This is the sales price divided by the square footage of the home. For instance, this home is a 2,457 square foot house that’s being sold for $259,900. The price per square foot would be around $170.

Aside from the price per square foot, another factor that matters when determining a home’s value is its livable space. Garages, attics, and unfinished basements are generally not counted in usable square footage. For instance, a 1,500-square-foot home with a 300-square-foot garage means having only 1,200-square-feet of livable space.

Home Amenities

Bedrooms and bathrooms are most highly valued, so the more beds and baths a particular home has, the higher it’s worth. However, these are not the only home amenities that are valuable in an Apple Valley home. For example, a home with a dock where one can easily access the lake, swim, fish, or play water sports such as this home, is highly desirable. Updated homes are also priced higher than homes that are sold as they were originally built.

Home Age and Condition

While older homes may be more affordable than newer ones, they may also require a significant amount for repairs. Buying either a newer home or an older one, both have its advantages and disadvantages. 

Some buyers are willing to pay more for a home that is move-in-ready. This is one reason why most buyers include an inspection contingency in their contract so that they can negotiate repairs and avoid any major expenses following the sale.

Renovation Potential

Homes that have a higher potential for expansion such as homes on a big lot, may have a higher value than homes with limited potential. Some home buyers and investors highly consider a home’s potential for growth — the possibility of adding an extra bedroom or extra story, the potential to increase the floor space, or the potential to add a pool or outdoor patio. 

The Current Market

Prices of homes can also vary depending on the status of the current market. In a buyer’s market, the prices of homes are somewhat lower, since there are more homes on the market. In a seller’s market, however, the prices of homes are priced higher.

While “timing the market” may not always be a good idea when shopping for your Apple Valley home, knowing what the current market is can give you an advantage.

Economic Factors

Economic factors can also affect the price of real estate not only in Apple Valley but in the whole country in general. If the economy is experiencing strong growth, employment, and labor conditions, more people can afford to purchase a property, which leads to rising property values. However, some unforeseen situations can lead to a sudden downturn in the economy, which in turn might lead to adjustments in real estate valuations.
