What Drives Home Prices Up?

Real Estate Agent with Carolina One Real Estate

What drives home prices in Summerville (or any town for that matter) to go up or down? The answer lies in the principle of supply and demand. When there are more houses on the market, home prices start to turn down. However when the supply of houses goes down, the home prices are driven up.

Foster, those are great graphs & visuals that explain how home prices are driven up. I might just have to make some graphs of my own showing our local inventory levels over time.
