Depreciation is the recognition that something may become worth less over time than it was worth initially.

depreciated value... so if you figured that something was worth $100 to start with and would be used up or worthless after 5 years, it would be worth $20 less for each year you'd owned it.

In general, homes appreciate in value, but cars and home contents generally depreciate or go down in value.
