Cedar Park, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/09/2023 --, a completely free-to-use commercial real estate data and listing platform, recently published a report outlining the top 25 US cities that had the largest wealth gains from homeownership since 2017.

Due to climbing home valuations, the top 5 cities on the list were:

In 2022, the median price for a home in the United States was $368,000, significantly higher than 2017's, thanks to "low-interest rates, strong economic growth, and rising demand from homebuyers," according to the report.

"The five-year housing wealth gains since 2017 in the United States were $155,400," says the report, "representing a 73.1% increase. Rising home prices and cumulative principal payments have driven this increase."
