Home prices are rising and today’s mortgage holders are reaping the rewards. A reward of nearly $457 billion collectively, to be exact.

According to CoreLogic's 2019 3rd Quarter Homeowner Equity Insights Report:  

“U.S. homeowners with mortgages have seen their equity increase by a total of nearly $457 billion since the third quarter of 2018, an increase of 5.1%, year over year.”  

Here is the map showing equity gain state by state:

Following the housing market crash in 2008, many homeowners found themselves stuck as their property values dropped below the outstanding mortgage debt they held. With the turnaround of the housing market, CoreLogic reports that the average homeowner gain in equity was $5,300 over the last twelve months. Here in Florida, it’s $8,000.

 

Home equity is determined by comparing the market value of your home against the money you have borrowed to purchase the property. In other words, home equity is the portion of your property that you “truly own.”
