Home Value Comparison Tool

A failure to diversify one’s home (often the largest asset) can expose a homeowner to home-value risk brought on by volatility (severe price fluctuations) within their local market.

To demonstrate the power and necessity of home diversification, we’ve created a tool incorporating real data that graphically compares local versus national-market home prices over any period dating to 1991.

Try it out using the provided sample and then take it for a spin using your own local market zip code to see how our HDC Agreement would have actually served you during the past 20-plus years.

Instructions

1.Enter zip. Ex: 20170. 2. Enter year you bought your home. Ex: 2006. 3. Enter home value as of that year (no commas). Ex: 300000 4. Click GO

Sample Results Explained

Graph 1 – National home prices (aqua-colored line) rose more during the 2006 to 2017 period (111%) versus home prices in zip code 20170 (dark blue line), which rose 95% over the same time frame.

Graph 2 – The local market home value (zip code 20170) dropped to $285, 491 from its 2006 value of $300,000.

As a result, If you sold your home in 2017, your HDC Agreement would pay you $47,629. (red line)
