Have you ever wondered why home prices seem to always go up? Despite occasional fluctuations, history has shown a consistent upward trend in home values over the years. Let's delve into why this is the case and why owning a home remains one of the smartest financial decisions you can make.

Just the Facts

Looking at the graph depicting annual changes in home prices since 1980, you'll notice a pattern of predominantly green bars. Each green bar represents a year when home values increased, reaffirming the notion that prices tend to rise over time.

Even amidst economic uncertainties and occasional downturns, like the recent global pandemic, home prices have continued their upward trajectory. Contrary to some misconceptions, last year saw no national drop in home prices. Instead, prices surged, surpassing expectations and rising more than usual.

This consistent upward movement in home prices underscores the resilience and stability of the real estate market. While short-term fluctuations may occur due to various factors, the long-term trend remains clear: home values appreciate over time.

Your Home is an Investment

Owning a home is not only a place to live but also a solid investment. As home prices steadily increase, homeowners benefit from growing equity, providing financial security and wealth-building opportunities. Additionally, historically low mortgage rates have further enhanced the affordability of homeownership, making it an attractive option for many.
