# New here, simple question:Rate of Appreciation?

If I paid 113,000 for a house four years ago that is now worth 135 how do I calculate my rate of appreciation? I can’t find a calculator anywhere on the internet.
Thanks

use a Hewlett Packard hp 12c which has been around 20+ years( i still have and use mine).

PV = \$113,000
FV = \$135,000
Term + 4 Years

IRR (internal rate of return) = approx. 4.54% per year. FMRR may be slightly different.

Howdy Racn1wrx:

You may also use simple math to find the total return.

135-113=22/113=19.47%

It increased in value almost 20%

Wow , thanks for the reply. I’ve heard of the hp 12c but there’s all these new real estate specific calcs out now i will probable order one. Thanks again,
