ROARING 20S: Homeowners $2 trillion richer… Penthouse sales sky-high in NYC again…

Sharing is Caring!

Homeowners got $2 trillion richer during the first three months of the year

  • Homeowners with mortgages saw their equity jump by 20% in the first quarter from a year earlier.
  • This represents a collective cash gain of close to $2 trillion. Per borrower, the average gain was $33,400.
  • Record-low mortgage rates for much of last year only added to the buying frenzy and helped fuel the price gains.

Homeowners are getting richer and richer as prices keep soaring – and the numbers are staggering.

Those with mortgages — about 62% of all properties — saw their equity jump by 20% in the first quarter from a year earlier, according to CoreLogic. This represents a collective cash gain of close to $2 trillion. Per borrower, the average gain was $33,400.

The massive gain is thanks to soaring home prices, which CoreLogic said were up over 11% in March, the end of the quarter, from a year earlier. That’s the sharpest gain since 2006. Prices rose an even stronger 13% in April.
