About property price statistics

These statistics track developments in residential property prices (RPP) and commercial property prices (CPP) across the world via three data sets - detailed residential, selected residential and commercial. The selected residential property prices are harmonised as much as possible with recommendations in the Handbook on residential property prices, an internationally agreed framework for classifying property price issues.

As of January 2024, property price statistics will only be disseminated through the BIS Data Portal.
The BIS Statistics Explorer and the current page will no longer be available.

About our data sets

More information

In disseminating the commercial and residential property price statistics, the BIS and its member central banks are following up on the recommendations in The financial crisis and information gaps - a joint IMF/FSB report prepared for G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors. Recommendation 19 of the initial report advised the BIS and its member central banks to investigate how publicly available real estate price data are disseminated on its website. The initial joint report was published in October 2009 while the recommendations for the second phase were presented in September 2015. Further progress reports have subsequently been published in May 2010, June 2011, September 2012, September 2013, September 2014, September 2016,  September 2017September 2018FSB and IMF publish 2019 Progress Report on G20 Data Gaps Initiative , FSB and IMF Publish 2020 Progress Report on G20 Data Gaps Initiative and FSB and IMF Publish 2021 Progress Report on the G20 Data Gaps Initiative.
