Home Seller Profits Climb to 13 Year High

The average seller saw a home price gain of $65,500 on a typical sale, which is up from $58,100 the year prior, ATTOM Data Solutions reports in a new study. This marks the highest profit level for Sellers since 2006.

That also represents a 34% average return on their investment compared to the original purchase price, which is also the highest average profit level for sellers since 2006.

“The nation’s housing boom kept roaring along in 2019 as prices hit a new record, returning ever-higher profit levels to home sellers and posing even greater challenges for buyers seeking bargains,” says Todd Teta, chief product officer at ATTOM Data Solutions.

Homeowners in western states continued to see the highest profit levels in the nation, found ATTOM Data Solutions’ researchers.
