JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – July 25, 2016 – Today, the Data and Analytics division of Black Knight Financial Services, Inc. (NYSE: BKFS) released its latest Home Price Index (HPI) report, based on May 2016 residential real estate transactions. The Black Knight HPI utilizes repeat sales data from the nation’s largest public records data set, as well as its market-leading, loan-level mortgage performance data, to produce one of the most complete and accurate measures of home prices available for both disclosure and non-disclosure states. Non-disclosure states do not include property sales price information as part of their publicly available county recorder data. Black Knight is able to obtain the sales price information for these states by combining and matching records across its unique data assets.

Each month the Black Knight HPI reports five price levels (quintiles), along with REO discount rates, for 18,000+ U.S. ZIP codes. Findings are available with or without seasonal adjustments, although all numbers that follow have not been seasonally adjusted.

The Black Knight HPI utilizes repeat sales data from the nation’s largest public records data set, as well as its market-leading loan-level mortgage performance data, to capture home price data from both disclosure and non-disclosure states. Each month the Black Knight HPI reports five price levels (quintiles), along with REO discount rates for each of 18,000+ U.S. ZIP codes. This level of detail is provided for three property groupings in every ZIP code: i) all residential properties, ii) condominiums, and iii) single-family housing.
