HPI Benchmark Prices

The Home Price Index (HPI) measures the price of a benchmark, or typical, property in a given market and is not influenced by the change in composition of properties sold, which can fluctuate quite significantly from month to month. As a result, this metric is a more pure and stable representation of market price change than average or median prices.

Sales • New Listings • Active Listings

There has been an observed trend of increasing sales on a month-over-month basis for all property types in the housing market. Detached homes saw the most significant increase at 88%, while townhouses and condos experienced gains of 62% and 71%, respectively.
