Well when you buy a home its only natural to want it to increase in value afterwards. You don't want to see it become worth less than you paid.

The problem is when you have these huge increases like 10% per year. The prices rise too fast, create a bubble, which bursts and those late to the party lose as the market prices falls back to reality.

There should be a value increase to match inflation. But a slow steady value increase over years rather than large jumps up and down over months.
