Unrealized Appreciation

Unrealized Appreciation

An increase in the value of a property or other asset that the owner does not receive because the asset has not been sold. Unrealized appreciation occurs most commonly in real estate and securities because most other assets depreciate. Unrealized appreciation is not taxed until the asset is sold. However, unrealized appreciation may be used to calculate property taxes. See also: Net unrealized appreciation.
