A lot of people assume that the economy is the most influential factor affecting real estate appreciation.

But the most influential issues that determine your property's value depend on the
Goldsboro economy and housing market.
Access to services
- Being close to schools, employment and amenities like shopping, restaurants and entertainment is a priority to a lot of buyers and will greatly influence home values. So those areas consistently appreciate, or keep their value consistently, year to year.
- Your agent should provide you with facts and figures on the recent real estate sales in the areas that you're asking about. You'll want to know average time on market, selling versus listing price and more.
- Have home prices gone up or down over the past 5 to 10 years? Is the area thought to be desirable because of its location or affordability?
- Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Are local companies hiring? Is there a good combination of job types in an area, or does it count on just one industry? All these play a role.
