  • Home values in Seattle have been appreciating more than 3.5 times faster per working hour than the cities’ minimum wage workers earn.
  • In Seattle, the typical homeowner is gaining $54.24 of equity in their home every hour they’re at the office. The city’s hourly minimum wage is $15.00.
  • The typical U.S. homeowner is gaining $7.09 of equity in their home every working hour, $0.16 less than federal minimum wage.

The rapid pace of home value appreciation over the past year may present homeowners in Seattle with an interesting dilemma: Why work a 9-5 slog, when you can sit back and collect substantial hourly home equity “earnings” instead?

Do You Know Your Homes True Value? "Click" Here

Homeownership - more than any other financial asset - is key to household wealth, accounting for nearly one-fourth of all assets held by households in 2016. The Survey of Consumer Finances (SCR) valued assets made up of primary residences at $24.2 trillion.

Three additional categories accounted for another 55 percent of a household's balance sheet:

  1. Other financial assets ($20.2 trillion; 20 percent), described as including loans from the household to someone else, future proceeds, royalties, futures, non-public stock, deferred compensation, oil/gas/mineral investments, and cash, not elsewhere classified;
  2. Business interests ($20.2 trillion; 20 percent); and
  3. Retirement accounts ($15

Millennials accounted for 36 percent of all home purchases last year, retaining their ranking as the most active generation of buyers for the fifth consecutive year, and improving on the previous year's figure of 34 percent. Despite that feat, the chief economist at the National Association of Realtors® said the overall share of millennial buyers remains at an underperforming level.

"What used to be a quick action market for buyers is now, once again, an instant response market, and this has been the case
