I recently wondered what our average prices have done in the last 10  years, so I did a bit of research.  Since 2011 we have appreciated 87% . . . .that’s a solid investment.  As you can see from the table, even if your purchase didn’t happen at the bottom of the market (2011) you’ve still enjoyed some increased value.  Plus, you’ve got to enjoy a home!  If you’d like me to run data specific to your neighborhood let me know, I’d be happy to send that information your way.
