I'm assuming the 14% is per year rather than per month. The monthly appreciation rate, then, would be 0.14/12 = .01167

House Worth = (Initial Cost)*(1 + 0.01167)^{m} = ($145,000)*(1.01167)^{m}

Where m = months. Just plug in m=3 to compute the home's value in 3 months, and m=12 to compute its value in 12 months (1 year)

If the 14% is per month, then the formula would be (Initial Cost)*(1 + 0.14)^{m}
