The statewide spike in home values means massive gains in Coloradans' equity, per a quarterly report from real estate data firm CoreLogic.

Between the lines: That puts money in pockets, with the average local homeowner gaining $78,000 in equity through the first nine months of the year.

  • "Home equity is a component of total wealth and it helps stimulate additional spending," Frank Nothaft, chief economist at CoreLogic, said during the National Association of Real Estate Editors annual conference.

Zoom out: Multiple states saw bigger gains than Colorado, including: Idaho at $82,000; Utah at $91,000; and Arizona at $92,000.

Now, check out our hefty list of Hot Homes of the week:
