Discover the factors that drive your home’s value and determine its price.
One of the questions we frequently encounter is about the factors that determine the value of a home, especially for sellers who are eager to understand the price range they can expect. Let’s break it down.
Firstly, location holds significant importance; as the saying goes, “location, location, location.” If your property is in an area experiencing revitalization, such as the Millcreek district with its new city hall and ongoing improvements, it can positively impact your home’s value. Factors like low crime rates and highly regarded school systems also contribute to higher home values.
Secondly, the supply and demand equation plays a crucial role. When there is an abundance of available properties, demand tends to decrease, and consequently, the price of your home may not reach its peak. However, in the current market scenario, we have witnessed a higher demand than supply, which favors sellers like you. On the Wasatch Front, for instance, we currently have a supply of approximately three months, indicating a seller’s market.

The third factor is the upgrades and features present in your home. If you have undertaken renovations like a remodeled kitchen or installed new engineered vinyl flooring, these improvements can enhance your home’s value. Similarly, adding an extra bathroom can also increase its worth. Consulting with a real estate professional is advisable to determine which upgrades will yield the best returns on investment.
Lastly, the overall state of the economy influences home prices. Despite higher inflation rates, buyers are still willing to spend at a substantial level, and the economy remains strong. Even with historically low unemployment, people continue to make significant purchases, and inflation appears to be stabilizing. Hence, the economy can impact the price of your home.
