We provide the only national dataset of neighborhood-specific home appreciation rates available today.
Just type in any property address. With these data you can know ahead of time which neighborhoods have the highest home appreciation rates and maintain their home values, before you spend $100,000s on a home purchase or real estate investment.
Our data reveal the home appreciation rates for every neighborhood in America. This exclusive appreciation rate data at the neighborhood level helps home buyers and real estate investors separate good performing neighborhoods from those that appear to be appreciating well at the moment, but that history has shown to lose their value more easily in past downturns. Since a home purchase is the largest single purchase for most Americans, these exclusive insights can be invaluable.
Our data are designed to capture changes in the value of single-family homes at the neighborhood level. Different neighborhoods within a city or town can have drastically different home appreciation rates. These data vividly reveal such differences (see example above). Our data are calculated and updated every three months for each neighborhood, approximately two months after the end of the previous quarter. Each quarter, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac provide their most recent mortgage transactions. These data are combined with the data of the previous 29 years to establish price differentials on properties where more than one mortgage transaction has occurred. The data are merged with neighborhood-specific median house values using NeighborhoodScout's proprietary algorithms developed by Dr. Schiller, creating an updated historical database that is then used to estimate the appreciation rates for each neighborhood within each time period.
These resultant neighborhood appreciation rates are a broad measure of the movement of single-family house prices. The appreciation rates serve as an accurate indicator of house price trends at the neighborhood level.
Know before you buy. We show you the types of housing in any neighborhood, the size of dwelling, the distribution of housing ages, and even the occupancy.
Don't buy the only owner-occupied house amidst a sea of rental apartments. Our data show you ahead of time what to expect.
