Instant Reaction: December Owners’ Gains Forecast

The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National Index shows that U.S. prices of single-family homes continue to rise. The national index level in December reached a new high and is up 5.8 percent from a year earlier. But what does this mean for homeowners?

Home prices affect the wealth of homeowners. As the price of housing increases, the wealth of homeowners increases as well. Based on the above increase of home prices, it is estimated that value of owners’ household real estate was increased by 1.3 trillion in the last year and 105 billion came from home price increases in December. That means that 75 million homeowners each gained $16,800 on average in December 2016 from a year earlier.
