Yearly Home Price Appreciation Rates: How much do homes go up in value each year?

This infographic shows yearly home price appreciation rates in the United States over the past 25 years.

Use this infographic to show clients looking to purchase a home or otherwise invest in real estate that housing is the best way to secure investment dollars over time. As shown below, home price appreciation is very stable and predictable. Even despite the economic recession from 2007 to 2011, U.S. home prices still increased at an average rate of approximately 4% per year.

In fact, if these home price appreciation rates continue on along this trend, housing values should make a total recovery from the recent financial crisis that devastated a wide range of industries around the globe. New construction home builders again have the confidence to start building houses at a more rapid pace.

Additionally, since mortgage rates have remained at incredibly low levels and figure to remain well below the historical average for the next few years, home buyer demand figures to outpace housing supply to keep home prices on the rise.

Brian quick question: Do home appreciation rates always move in parallel with mortgage rates? Today I read that mortgage rates are going up because of the improving job market. Is there a scenario when home loans rates go up but house prices don't appreciate? Thank you.
