The economy is assumed to be the most critical factor impacting real estate appreciation. Naturally, there are a lot of factors on a national level that adjust your property's value: unemployment, mortgage rates, business growth, and more. However, your property's value and the features that play the biggest role in its appreciation depend on the local Huntington Beach economy and housing market.

History of appreciation - In the last 5 to 10 years, have house prices risen or declined? Does location or affordability affect how desirable the neighborhood is believed to be?

The local economy - Are local businesses hiring? Have businesses moved into or away from an area? Is there a fair mixture of job types in an area, or does it count on just one industry? Is the mix of commercial and residential development changing? All these play a role.
