Commercial property prices
Updated 22 February 2017
This data set contains nominal commercial property prices for 14 countries, and is updated monthly. Commercial properties include properties rented out at market prices, built for future sale, or used for the production of market goods and services. Commercial property price indicators (CPPIs) have long been seen as a useful tool for monitoring financial stability and macroeconomic developments. Yet their availability and international comparability was limited before the Great Financial Crisis. The Data Gaps Initiative (DGI) endorsed by the G20 asked the members of the Inter-Agency Group on Economic and Financial Statistics (IAG) to improve the dissemination of CCPIs and to start methodological work for their compilation. The second phase of the DGI, initiated in 2015, builds on this preparatory work and recommends that international organisations enhance methodological guidance on the compilation of CPPIs and encourages dissemination of data on commercial property prices via the BIS website.
