Homeowners: Do You Know Your Home’s Value?

    Homeowners: Do You Know Your Home’s Value? | Simplifying The Market

    The latest edition of CoreLogic’s Home Price Index shows that nationally, home prices have appreciated 6.7% over the last year and 0.9% month-over-month. The release of the report included this headline, 

    “National Home Prices Now 50% Above March 2011 Bottom”

    The real estate market has come a long way since 2011, which is great news for homeowners!

    Nearly 79% of homeowners with a mortgage in the US now have significant equity in their homes (defined as over 20%), according to the latest Equity Report. The challenge is that not every homeowner knows how much their home’s value has appreciated.

    Homeowners in Denver, CO lead the way with 8.7% appreciation over the last year, while owners in Washington and Utah have experienced a 3% increase in values since the start of this year!

    Nationally, CoreLogic forecasts that home values will increase another 5.0% by this time next year.

    Bill Banfield, VP of Capital Markets at Quicken Loans, recently explained the importance of knowing the conditions in your area,

    “With home values constantly changing, and the rates of change varying across the country, this is one more way to show how important it is for homeowners to stay aware of their local housing market.”

    Bottom Line
