For many Americans, buying their first home is their first taste of achieving part of the American Dream. Team Nest Builder knows there’s a sense of pride that comes along with owning your own home and building your family’s wealth through your monthly mortgage payment.Here's GOOD NEWS for those who have outgrown their starter homes!

It may seem hard to imagine that the first home you purchased (which made your dreams come true) might not be the home that'll allow you to achieve the rest of your dreams. The good news is that it’s ok to admit that your home no longer fits your needs!

According to CoreLogic’s latest Home Price Index, prices in the starter home market have appreciated faster than any other category over the last year, at 9.4%. At the same time, inventory in this category has dropped 14.2%.

These two stats are directly related to one another. As inventory has decreased and demand has increased, prices have been driven up.

This is great news if you own a starter home and are looking to move up to a larger home as the equity in your home has risen as prices have gone up. Even better is the fact that there is a large pool of buyers out there searching for your starter home to help them achieve their American Dream!
