How to validate local appreciation?

1 Reply

How would I go about verifying appreciation in a market that I'm considering purchasing a SFR property in?

It is an out of town market. Are there internet sources? What others way would I find out?

Obviously having an idea of appreciation would influence my decision to invest.

Thank you!

@Alex Zaboli Redfin has a market insights tab you can use to look at market appreciation, however, I question the accuracy of it.  There are sites you can check, often local realtor market analyses.  I would call up local agents in that market and ask for the data from them to compare to what you find online. Just remember, past appreciation doesn't guarantee future appreciation.  Don't be the farm on appreciation alone, make sure the numbers work regardless of appreciation too.
