Housing Price Index Updates & Trends

.. this past week we have updated Housing Price Index data and tools to examine patterns and trends for the U.S., states, metros and counties .. the Housing Price Index (HPI) is one of many measures useful to gain insights into the housing market. The HPI provides information on how housing value appreciation is changing for areas of interest. Use the interactive table to view, compare, sort metros/CBSAs based on annual HPI 2010-2017 and housing value appreciation during the period. These annual data, with a 2000 base index value of 100, provide insights into longer term patterns.  The HPI is alos updated quarterly for U.S./state/metro areas quarterly for analyses requiring more recent data.  These data are new as of February 2018.
