Our Publishing Methods & Goals

The Home Buying Institute (HBI) publishes U.S. housing market news with an emphasis on local real estate conditions. We primarily serve home buyers, offering helpful and unbiased information to shed light on local conditions.

Methodology: We curate information from a wide variety of sources. This includes home price data, local market trends, population trends, and much more. We use this information to explain what is happening in housing markets across the country, in plain English. Our end-goal is to help home buyers make better-informed decisions.

Disclaimers: The Home Buying Institute often cites third-party reports that make predictions and forecasts relating to home prices, mortgage rates, etc. We share such reports as an educational service to our readers. As a general rule, however, HBI makes no claims, predictions or assertions about future economic conditions.
