The idealist real estate price index*

From the report for the first quarter of 2019, in idealista we updated the methodology of creating our reports. Following the incorporation of idealist/data, new calculation formulas have been included that bring even more robustness to the analysis of price developments, especially in small areas. To avoid jumps in our series, the data since 2007 have been recalculated with the new methodology.

On the recommendation of the idealist/data statistical team, we updated the formula to find the average price with more certainty: in addition to eliminating outlier and out-of-market ads we calculate the median value instead of the average value. With this change, in addition to further fine-tuning our report to the reality of the market, we approve our methodology with those that are applied in countries around us for obtaining real estate data.

We now include the type of single-family housing (chalet) and discard real estate of any type that has been in our database for a long time without obtaining user interaction. The report is still based on bid prices published by idealist advertisers.
