25 Year Home Appreciation Map
When discussing the criteria for high appreciation areas many people point to factors like good school districts, proximity to light rail stations, home owner income levels, redevelopment opportunities, etc. While factors such as these can impact appreciation, this map makes one fact obvious – neighborhoods closest to the city center are more likely to appreciate at a higher rate than areas outside the city.
Just look at all that green in the middle in comparison to the yellows, oranges and reds in the suburban areas.
If you’re looking to by a home or rental property that will appreciate one simple strategy is to buy close to the center.
