The idealista property price index * Starting with the report for the first quarter of 2019, at idealista we updated the methodology for creating our reports.
After the incorporation of idealista / data, new calculation formulas have been included that provide even more robustness to the analysis of price developments, especially in small areas.
To avoid jumps in our series, the data since 2007 has been recalculated with the new methodology. On the recommendation of the statistical team at idealista / data, we updated the formula to find the average price with more certainty: in addition to eliminating out-of-market and out-of-market ads, we calculated the median value instead of the median value.
With this change, in addition to further refining our report to the reality of the market, we standardize our methodology with those applied in neighboring countries to obtain real estate data. We include from now on the typology of single-family housing (chalets) and we discard the properties of any typology that have been in our database for a long time without obtaining user interaction.
The report continues to be based on the offer prices published by idealista advertisers.
