Definitions for "Appreciation Rate"
The percentage increase in the value of an asset expressed as an annual rate.
Typically the market value of your home will increase over time. The appreciation rate is a way to judge how quickly the home's value is increasing. You can estimate this figure by calculating the percent increase of the home's value over a period of one year. For example, suppose that you own a $100,000 home and that the value of your home increases by roughly $3,000 per year. In this case, the home's appreciation rate would be 3% because the home's value has grown by 3%, from $100,000 to $103,000.
A percentage figure to compute actual or estimated appreciation.
