The Rightmove house prices index measures the change in prices of homes for sale based on sellers’ asking prices. Investors use it to gauge the health of the housing industry as rising house prices often indicates a healthy demand for homes.
Because it is based on asking prices and not actual selling prices, it tends to have a relatively weaker impact on the markets compared to other housing prices reports.
Availability: It is usually published three weeks into the current month and is the U.K.’s earliest report on housing inflation data.
