ABSTRACT
The article discusses some guidelines on how to better understand housing price indexes. Some of the top indexes used are the National Association of Realtors median index and the Census Bureau median index. The "repeat sales" methodology is used to simplify the changes that occur in the house and in the market over time. Differences among other indexes such as the Federal Housing Finance Agency index, Case-Shiller, and CoreLogic indexes are also included.
