Whay are Boston real estate owners happy in 2020? Studies have shown that, in many cases, the largest asset a family owns is the condominium (home) they live in. Over the last twelve months, that asset has gained substantial value.
CoreLogic just released their 2019 3rd Quarter Homeowner Equity Insights Report. The report revealed that:
“U.S. homeowners with mortgages (roughly 64% of all properties) have seen their equity increase by a total of nearly $457 billion since the third quarter 2018, an increase of 5.1%, year over year.”
The equity in Boston real estate is determined by comparing the current value of the property against the outstanding mortgage debt. As prices rise, the equity in a home increases.
The report went on to explain that the average homeowner gain in equity over the last twelve months was $5,300.
Here’s a map showing the average equity gain by state: Since the housing crash in 2008, many homeowners have felt trapped in their current houses/condos, as they didn’t have enough equity to sell. The gains in equity over the past few years may have freed some homeowners who have a desire to move.
