HPI Calculator

Estimated Value:

When using the House Price Calculator, please note that it does not project the actual value of any particular house. Rather, it projects what a given house purchased at a point in time would be worth today if it appreciated at the average appreciation rate of all homes in the area. The actual value of any house will depend on the local real estate market, house condition and age, home improvements made and needed, and many other factors. Consult a qualified real estate appraiser in your area to obtain a professional estimate of the current value of your home. Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 requires that any appraisal used in connection with a federally related transaction must be performed by a competent individual whose professional conduct is subject to supervision and regulation. Appraisers must be licensed or certified according to state law.

The House Price Calculator uses the FHFA Purchase-Only House Price Index (not seasonally adjusted) for all states, including the District of Columbia, and for the largest 100 Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Divisions. For all other Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Divisions the FHFA All-Transactions Index is used. For a list of the largest 100 Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Divisions, click here.
