3.2 Trillion

The new CoreLogic Homeowner Equity Insights report shows that homeowners in the U.S. have seen their equity increase by a total of $3.2 trillion over the last 12 months.

Their data shows that 63% of all homes have a mortgage.

On average, U.S. homeowners gained $55,000 while the average increase in Colorado was higher at $75,000.

The other piece of good news from the report is that properties with negative equity reached the lowest amount in several years.

Only 2.1% of all properties across the U.S. have a value lower than the mortgaged amount.  Negative equity peaked at 26% of all mortgaged properties back in 2009.
