Asking Price Index: The UK's Leading Property Market Indicator

The Home.co.uk Asking Price Index is the UK's only independent, forward market indicator. The published figures indicate fluctuations in residential property asking prices and thereby reflect current and historic confidence of buyers and sellers of UK homes on the open market.

The Home.co.uk Asking Price Index is calculated every month using around 500,000 UK house prices found in the Home.co.uk Property Search Index. This figure represents the majority of the property for sale on the open market in the UK at any given time. Properties above £1m and below £20k are excluded from the calculations.

The Home.co.uk Index is based on asking price data which means it can provide insights into price movements around 5 months ahead of mortgage completion and actual sales data - thus making it the most forward looking of all indices.

The Home.co.uk Asking Price Index was originally devised in association with Landmark Analytics (formerly Calnea Analytics), leading suppliers of property market data.
