Susanne Giraud - Cabo San Lucas Homes for SaleAppreciating Real Estate Values in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur

Over time, the worth of real estate in Los Cabos will fluctuate up and down. In a long enough period of time, home values in Los Cabos normally appreciate. But, in real estate there are no sure things.

When your house appreciates you have a greater asset to borrow against, and you get a better profit when you sell. But how will you be sure real estate in Los Cabos you're purchasing right now will appreciate over time? Property values in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur change for a variety of reasons. Choosing a real estate agent in Los Cabos, BCS who recognizes the factors that affect local prices is the most important aspect to consider. 

A lot of people guess that the economy is the most important factor impacting real estate in Los Cabos appreciation. After all, interest rates, employment, business growth, government programs and numerous other national determinants have a definite effect on your property's value. However, your home's value and the aspects that play the most significant role in its appreciation are specific to the local Los Cabos, BCS economy and housing market. 

Access to services: Being close to schools, employment and amenities like shopping, restaurants and entertainment is a big deal to many potential home buyers and will greatly influence real estate values in Los Cabos. Regions close to these services typically appreciate, or carry their value, best. 

Recent home sales: You should receive information on the recent real estate sales in the Los Cabos neighborhoods you are interested in from your real estate agent. You'll need to learn figures like time on market and listing price versus selling price.

Appreciation history: Have real estate prices in Los Cabos increased or decreased over the past 5-10 years? Is the community thought of as desirable because of its location or affordability?

Local economy: Is there a fair blend of business in a particular Los Cabos area, or does it depend on just one industry? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? All these play a role.
