Cost Of Waiting

Being in real estate, I tend to see and understand the appreciation you receive when buying. However, when I see graphs that show different types of investments and the return received, I am still in awe of how the system works. As you can see in this chart, last year was a great year for housing appreciation.

I am also thrilled that I live in Texas–for a lot of reasons–but for now I’m talking about our housing market. Texas leads the nation in the most homes with positive equity.
