2020 Is Still Shaping How We Use Real Estate Data

Lenders have long used home price indices to track and understand trends in the housing market. But in an unpredictable year like 2020, the industry relied on home price data and analytics more than ever before to identify risk and opportunity. However, legacy home price indices, which rely upon outdated mathematical tools, are essentially outdated by the time they are released months after market activity occurs.

The Radian Home Price Index, provided by Radian subsidiary Red Bell Real Estate LLC, is a comprehensive and timely measure of U.S. housing market prices and conditions, and is available just 15 days after each month ends. The Radian HPI leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence to deliver micro-market indices, which combine property attributes like bedrooms or square footage with granular geography like zip codes and neighborhoods. This combination of modern math, instant insights and micro-market granularities make it a more valuable tool for lenders to view the real-time trends in the market.

Watch below as Brena Nath, HW+ Managing Editor, and Steve Gaenzler, Radian's SVP of Data & Analytics, discuss insights from the Radian Home Price Index.
