Since home-price forecasts are the key to identifying opportunities, risks, and potential volatilities in future real estate markets, their accuracy is critical to success. Forecast accuracy depends on the right balance of data input, expertise of the analytics staff, and quality of the analytics toolset used to produce the results.
CoreLogic HPI Forecasts is designed to optimize this balance, generating verifiably trustworthy monthly predictions of home-price movements at the national, state, county, CBSA, and ZIP code levels up to thirty years (360 months) into the future.

CoreLogic HPI Forecasts Stress-Testing Scenarios help banks, investors, government entities, and others initiate or evaluate compliance with Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) and Dodd-Frank Stress-Test (DFAST) regulations—or develop independent stress-testing regimens of their own. CoreLogic HPI Forecasts Stress-Testing Scenarios help you project Federal Reserve Board of Governors’ national CCAR supervisory home price scenarios out five years at the state, CBSA, and ZIP Code levels on a monthly basis—for single-family combined (SFC) and SFC-excluding-stressed homes.

CoreLogic HPI Forecasts—Features
CoreLogic HPI Forecasts Stress-Testing Scenarios
CoreLogic HPI Forecasts Stress-Testing Scenarios help banks, investors, government entities, and others initiate or evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserve Board of Governors’ Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) and the Dodd-Frank Stress-Test (DFAST) regulations—or develop independent stress-testing regimens of their own.
Aligned with the national CCAR supervisory home price scenarios, CoreLogic HPI Forecasts Stress-Testing Scenarios project those scenarios at the state, CBSA, and ZIP Code levels on a monthly basis—for single-family combined (SFC) and SFC-excluding-stressed homes.
Market Condition Indicators and Long-Term Fundamental Values
Market Condition Indicators, an analytical enhancement now available with base subscriptions to CoreLogic HPI and CoreLogic HPI Forecasts at no additional cost, identifies whether a market is overvalued, undervalued, or at value.
Available for more than 350 Core-Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs), Market Condition Indicators is derived from long-term fundamental values—home-price “norms” based on the correlation of home prices with real disposable income per capita. Overvalued and undervalued markets are defined as those having a current home price index at least 10% above or 10% below those long-term fundamental values.
By identifying the relationship between a market’s long-term value and its current pricing, Market Condition Indicators help inform successful investment strategies and risk management decisions. The long-term CBSA fundamental values are also available to clients, letting you tighten or broaden value thresholds as your own business use warrants.
Both long-term fundamental values and Market Condition Indicators come at no increase in subscription fees.
