Appreciation Formula

The home appreciation calculator uses the following basic formula:

A = P × (1 + R/100) n

  • Where,
  • A is the value of the home after n years,
  • P is the purchase amount,
  • R is the annual percentage rate of appreciation,
  • n is the number of years after the purchase.

Example:

A house was bought for $200.000 in January 2014. In January 2019, it was valued at $250.000. Calculate the average annual percentage rate of appreciation.

Solution:

  • A = $250000,
  • P = $200000,
  • n = 5.

The value of the home after n years, A = P × (1 + R/100) n

Let's suppose that the multiplying factor is k

  • $250000 = $200000 × k 5
  • k = ($250000 / $200000) 1/5 = 1.0456
  • 1.0456 = (1 + R/100)
  • (1.0456 − 1) × 100% = 4.56%

Answer: The annual appreciation rate is 4.56%.
