Fluctuating home prices throughout San Gabriel Valley, Inland Empire and all of Southern California: What causes this?

Real estate values are constantly moving up and down. Over a long enough period of time, house values usually appreciate. But, of course, there are no "sure things" in real estate.

When your property appreciates you have a larger asset to borrow against, and you'll generate a greater profit when you sell. But how can you be sure what you're investing in today will appreciate over time? Property values in Diamond Bar go up and down for many different reasons. The most important thing to consider is that you choose an agent in Diamond Bar who recognizes the factors that influence local prices.

Clearly, there are numerous issues on a national level that alter your property's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, the stock market, and more.
