Just like the market for any other good, many factors can affect the price of a home.

The value of a home is far from concrete, and these outside dynamics can have a huge impact on the housing market, as well as the prices of individual homes.

Here are a few factors that can affect the price of a home:

Economy. Perhaps the most influential of all the factors is the economy. When the economy is in a recession, people have less money to spend.
