233,000 x (1+g) = 1,025,000
g = 339.91%
Or an annual compounded growth of 5.06%
233,000 x (1+Gannual)30 = 1,025,000
Gannual = 5.06%
while the lowest resale price raised from 6,000$ in Jan 1990 to 150,000$ in Feb 2020, that is a 2400% increase.
6,000 x (1+g) = 150,000
g = 2400%

6,000 x (1+Gannual)30 = 150,000
Gannual = 11.33%
The ratio between the highest and lowest resale price is from 233,000/6,000 = 38.83 in Jan 1990, to 1,025,000/150,000 = 6.83, the difference actually decreased significantly.
