The Rightmove House Prices Index estimates the trend in prices of homes for sale according to the seller ’s asking prices. Investors use this index to assess the health of the housing industry because rising house prices usually indicate a healthy housing demand. However, because the Rightmove House Prices Index is based on asking prices instead of actual selling prices, it has relatively little impact on the market compared to other house price reports.
Availability: It is usually released three weeks into the current month and is the earliest report on housing inflation data in the UK.
