Home Prices: Annual Appreciation for last 25 Years

Here’s an informative illustration of home appreciation for the last 25 years.  What can we conclude?  For one, the demise of the housing market which began in 2006 happened because homes appreciated TOO RAPIDLY, at UNREASONABLE levels during the immediate years leading up to 2006.  Secondly, when you compare the many years of positive appreciation with the 2006 – 2012 drop of only 5.7%, real estate looks pretty good as a LONG TERM investment.
