A Great Tool: MLS Home Price Index


Have you heard of the MLS HPI (Home Price Index)? It's a great tool that measures house price trends in the Greater Vancouver area and other major markets in Canada. 


Developed by 5 of Canada's largest real estat boards (Greater Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal), it measures the change in price of housing features.

 

 

Other HPI facts:

- It measures pure price changee (inflation or deflation)

- It measures the price of a 'typical' property

- It uses lot size, age, number of rooms, etc to provide accurate information

- Simply enter the area you are interested in, the type of property (residential, detached, etc), and date

to determine the HPI for the property type in the area you are interested in
