Sharing is caring!

According to a recent analysis at Clever Real Estate, home prices have risen 2.4 times faster than the rate of inflation. Over the last ten years, some states have enjoyed bigger increases in value than others.

Experts at Architecture Lab used data from Zillow to compare the average home value of 2013 and 2023 in every state to see where the most significant percentage increases in value were. Anton Giuroiu, CEO of Architecture Lab, said: “Overall, nearly half of all US states have seen their home values double across the past few years, and the biggest increases are shown here. While some states have seen a lot smaller increases, many of them had higher-end values to begin with, showing that lower-value states are just catching up. With how high some values are reaching on average in each state, even simple modifications to your home can make these numbers fluctuate a lot.”
