Home price appreciation is slowing down
December 06, 2018 / Jessica Guerin
The average homeowner gained $12,400 in equity in one year’s time, according to CoreLogic’s Home Equity Report for the third quarter of 2018. And while that’s exactly nothing, it’s the smallest annual increase in two years. Last quarter’s report revealed an increase of $16,000 in home equity. CoreLogic analyzed data on more than 50 million U.S. properties with a mortgage. Its report revealed that homeowners with mortgages (which account for 63% of all properties) saw their home equity increase 9.4% from last year.
