Real Estate Math Class : Lesson 123


A homes value, due to depreciation, was estimated to be $765,000 at the end of six years.

If the annual rate of depreciation was 2.5% what was the original cost of the home ?

The answers are posted below the wildlife photo (royalty free). Please take your time.


A. $900,000

Multiply 6 years times 2.5% and we get 15%.

Subtract 15% from 100% value and we get 85% total value depreciation over six years.

Now divide .85 or 85% into the current estimated depreciated value of $765,000 and we get $900,000.
