In this article we use data from the annual housing surveys to compare the real appreciation of black- and white-owned single-family homes in the U.S. in the 1974 to 1983 period. The empirical results show that single-family home appreciation depends primarily on income and population growth in the local real estate market and that race of the homeowner is not important to the appreciation process.
