Lightstone's November House Price Indices are based on globally accepted statistical principles with broad application in real estate and property finance. Lightstone applies a 'repeat sales' methodology as opposed to a general 'average house price' methodology. The benefit of the repeat sales methodology is that inflation and trends are based on properties which have repeatedly transacted in a certain time period and are less influenced by the mix of transacting properties, as is the case with an average house price approach.
