Home seller profits are soaring as home prices set new records in the pandemic. Home sellers nationwide in 2020 saw a home-price gain of $68,843 on the average sale—that is up from $48,500 two years prior, according to new research from ATTOM Data Solutions, a real estate research firm. Seller profits increased in more than 90% of the housing markets tracked, too.

Home seller equity for single-family homes and condos represented a 34.7% return on investment compared to the original purchase price, marking the highest gain since 2006, researchers note.
