Written by Richard Wilson

The opposite of depreciation, the appreciation of an asset refers to a property’s increase in price and value over time. This happens when the market value of an asset becomes higher than the price an investor paid for the said asset. It can also be caused by an increase in demand or weakening supply, or it can be the result of changes in interest rates or inflation.
