1 in 4 Properties Are ‘Equity Rich’

It’s a good time to be a homeowner: The share of equity-rich residential properties zoomed to a total of 14.4 million, shows the 2019 U.S. Home Equity & Underwater Report from ATTOM Data Solutions. Nearly 27% of all properties with a mortgage in the U.S. are now considered “equity rich,” meaning the combined estimated amount of loans secured by those properties was 50% or less of their estimated market value.
