Generally, the term is reserved for property or, more specifically, land and buildings." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appreciatio…
I own a rare care and it appreciates in value of 20% every year.
the house you bought will appreciate in value over the years.
I appreciate my mom because she buys me clothes and food in order for me to survive.
