A house costs $145,000 and it is appreciating by 14%. How much will it be worth 3 months from now? How much will it be worth 1 year from now?
 
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
