Wondering what the difference between the HPI, Average and Median Sale Price is?

MLS® Home Price Index
The MLS® HPI reports the price for an ‘economic bundle’ of housing features of a ‘typical’ house for a neighborhood, area or region. Modeled on the Consumer Price Index or CPI, it is considered to be the most accurate indicator of housing prices trends in a given region.

Average price
The average price is calculated by dividing the total dollar volume of sales by the number of sales. The average price is the simplest to explain but is not always the most accurate since it may be skewed by the mix of properties, such as more high-end or low-end sales will skew the number up or down.

Median price
In a list of housing prices from high to low, the median is the middle price.
