Equity regained with rising home prices.
93.8% of all mortgaged properties across the nation have now regained equity, according to a report by CoreLogic.
62,000 homes regained that equity in the last quarter of 2016.
“Average home equity rose bt $13,700 for U.S. homeowners during 2016,” says Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. “The equity build-up has been supported by home price growth and paydown of principal… Further, about one fourth of all outstanding mortgages have a term of 20 years or less, which amortize more quickly than 30 year loans and contribute to faster equity accumulation.”
