Appreciation history - Have home prices risen or declined over the past 5 to 10 years? Is the community thought to be desirable because of its location or affordability?
The local economy - Are local companies hiring? Have companies moved into or away from an area? Is there a good mixture of job types in an area, or does it rely on just one industry? Is the mix of commercial and residential development changing?
These items play a part.
