What is appreciation in real estate?

Appreciation means an increase in value for an item in a defined period. The appreciation in real estate means how much a house increases in value after a certain number of years. Over the long term, house prices tend to always go up giving homeowners and real estate investors an excellent way to build wealth.

What is a good home appreciation rate?

The home appreciation rate varies from state to state, and city to city. There is no hard rule on how fast or slow a home can appreciate. A 3% appreciation rate may be high for one city but would be considered low for another. There are many factors that impact the appreciation rate such as the location of the house, the general economy, or even the stock market. Home prices may appreciate faster in some years than in other years. A housing boom could skyrocket the housing price, and a recession may drive the housing price to the bottom.

How to calculate home appreciation?

After you have done all the research, you will come up with a realistic estimated appreciation rate for the home you want to buy. The rate of appreciation for housing will not be constant. There may be years when they go up a lot, and years that they stay still, and even decline during a recession when people are losing jobs, and houses are being foreclosure. For simplicity, we will use a constant appreciation rate to predict how much a house will be worth after a number of years. Home appreciation formula A = P(1+ r/100)^n, where A = The final value of home price P = The initial value of home price r = appreciation rate n = number of years Appreciation Example If you bought a house for \$500,000, and you think that it will appreciate 5% every year for the next 15 years. Following is how you would estimate the final value of your home. Solution A = P(1+ r/100)^n A = \$500,000 x (1+5/100)^15 A = \$500,000 x (1+0.05)^15 A = \$500,000 x (1.01)^15 A = \$500,000 x 2.0789 A = \$1,039,450 Therefore, a \$500,000 house would be double in price and worth around \$1,039,450 in 15 years with an annual appreciation rate of 5%.

How to find homes that will appreciate?

Real estate is all about location, location, and location. If you want to select a home that appreciates over time, you need to find a good location.

Location

Things that impact the appreciation rate of a home are the surrounding neighborhood. Is the house in a good school district? Is that near a park and public transportation? Are there high or low crime rates? Are there businesses such as restaurants, supermarkets, delis near the house? The condition of the house will impact the pricing of a home, but the impact is minimal when compared to the location because you can always renovate your home, but you can't renovate the neighborhood. Before buying a house, research the neighborhood thoroughly, compare prices from within the neighborhood, and find out the historical appreciation rates so you have a sense of how much your house is going to appreciate in the future.

Population Growth

Is the population increasing in the area where you are considering buying your house? In general, if a city where the population is growing, chances are the housing price will also rise. All these people who are moving into the city need a place to live, and many of them will need to buy houses which drives up the housing demand. As housing demand rises, so does the housing price.

Solar Panels

There are houses that have a solar system installed which reduces monthly energy costs for homeowners, usually priced higher than similar houses that don't have solar panels installed. We are not suggesting you buy a house just because it has solar systems as you can always install one on your own.

Flood Zone

Is the house that you are considering in a flood zone? Not many people like to live in an area where there is flooding unless they get a huge price break. Homeowners also pay more for property insurance to cover flooding. Therefore, houses in a flood zone do not appreciate as fast as the ones that are not.

Pool

Does the house have a pool? You may think that a house with a pool may appreciate faster than one without it. This might not be the case, because not everyone wants a pool in their backyard and pays extra on their home insurance. Having a pool in the house may actually narrow down potential buyers. Therefore, a house with a pool is sometimes harder to sell, and the homeowner may be forced to cut prices when they do sell their houses.

House Design

Is the house that you are looking to buy fit into the overall neighborhood? Does it have a special design or does it look similar to all the other houses on the block? Not everyone likes special designs or custom upgrades, if a house stands out in the neighborhood, it may not sell as well as the other ones.

Comparing Prices

Real estate tends to price houses compared to similar houses in the neighborhood. If a house with a similar style as yours was sold at \$300,000 recently, and you are planning to sell your house, it is likely that your house will be sold around that same price. Therefore, do not buy the most expensive house in your neighborhood and do not overpay because they won't appreciate as fast as the other ones that are cheaper. The value of your house may be dragged down or pulled up by the surrounding houses.

Is buying a house a good investment?

For most people, their homes will be their biggest purchase in life and many are wondering if buying a house is a good investment. If you need a place to live, then a house is a good investment. Buying a house allows one to build equity and net worth whereas renting does not. Being a tenant, once you move out from an apartment, you don't get to keep the apartment even if you have lived there for 30 years and are paying 30 years of rent. If you are a homeowner, then not only can you keep the house, but usually your house appreciates and is worth more in the future than when you first bought it. In general, the housing market goes up in value year after year. There may be years that the housing market doesn't rise or even decline during a bubble, but eventually, they all go up. Therefore, if you live in your home long enough, you will be able to sell it for a profit in the future.
