Portsmouth NH Homeownership as an Investment: The Role of Price Appreciation

We recently posted the results from the latest Home Price Expectation Survey (HPES) showing where residential home prices are headed over the next five years. Today, we want to show you what the results of the report could mean to you. If you are a self-employed real estate investor who is willing to add properties to your portfolio, visit

A good portion of every family’s wealth comes from the equity in the home they live in. As the value of their home (an asset) increases so does their equity. Let’s look at a possible case scenario based on the latest HPES.

If you would like an update on the current value of your home in Portsmouth NH or the New Hampshire Seacoast Ann and I would be happy to sit down with you for a brief review; no cost no obligation.

Here is a chart showing the survey’s projections on annual appreciation over the next five years:

We then looked at the five-year impact this would have on the equity of a family that purchased a home in January for $250,000:

Their family wealth (based on increased equity) would increase by $47,772 over those five years.

Bottom Line

If you don’t yet own, perhaps you should be thinking about purchasing. If you already own, maybe it’s time to move up to enjoy your dream home and also ride the increase in equity of the larger asset.  contains links to search all areas around Portsmouth NH and the NH Seacoast.
