Pro RE Calculator users can now use the Inflation Rate Calculator to compute US inflation rates from 1913 through August 2019 because it has been updated according to the most recent government data.


You spent $5,000 for a used truck in 2005 and want to know how much money you would have to spend in August 2019 to purchase a similar vehicle. Here are the steps:

  • Login to Pro RE Calculator
  • Select the category Time Value
  • Open the Inflation Rate calculator
  • Select 2005 as the starting year
  • Enter $5000.00 as the dollar amount spent

Explanation: Due to a 31.4% increase in the U.S. inflation rate since 2005, you will currently have to spend $6,538.31 for essentially the same truck you paid $5,000 for back in 2005.
