Homes in Democratic Districts Have Gained Twice as Much Value as Those in Republican Districts Over Last 8 Years

Homes in Democratic Districts Have Gained an Average $59,467, a 21 Percent Return; Homes in Republican Districts Have Gained an Average $22,086, a 10 Percent Return


/EINPresswire.com/ -- IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - October 05, 2016) - ATTOM Data Solutions, the nation's leading source for comprehensive housing data and the new parent company to RealtyTrac, released a special political housing analysis. ATTOM Data Solutions found that homeowners living in Democrat-controlled congressional districts have gained more than twice as much in housing wealth as homeowners living in Republican-controlled districts over the past eight years.

Among 2.4 million single family homes purchased eight years ago, those in Democrat-controlled districts have gained an average $59,467 in value since purchase -- a 21 percent return -- compared to a $22,086 return representing a 10 percent ROI for homes in Republican-controlled districts.

But homeowners in Republican-controlled districts are paying lower property taxes -- $2,514 on average representing a 1.02 effective tax rate compared to $3,659 representing a 1.07 percent tax rate for homeowners in Democrat-controlled districts.

Counter to the national trend, seven of the 11 battleground states in the 2016 presidential election have produced better ROI for homeowners in Republican-controlled districts.
