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:

If this happens, the home will likely sell for much less than it would have prior to the economic downturn.

 Location. Another important factor in the price of a home is its location.
