Which Homes Have Appreciated the Most? | MyKCM

Home values have risen dramatically over the last twelve months. The latest Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors puts the annual increase in the median existing-home price at 7.1%. CoreLogic, in their most recent Home Price Insights Report, reveals that national home prices have increased by 6.9% year-over-year.

The CoreLogic report broke down appreciation even further into four different price categories:

  1. Lower Priced Homes: priced at 75% or less of the median

  2. Low-to-Middle Priced Homes: priced between 75-100% of the median

  3. Middle-to-Moderate Priced Homes: priced between 100-125% of the median

  4. High Price Homes: priced greater than 125% of the median

Here is how each category did in 2016:
