SEATTLE, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Zillow® Home Value Index (ZHVI) is now available on the Bloomberg Professional service, a leading financial information platform that provides data, news and analytics to more than 315,000 business and financial professionals globally.
The first-of-its kind Index displays a proprietary median estimate valuation for more than 100 million homes nationwide and is designed to measure the true market value of all homes, not just those currently listed or recently sold.
"At Zillow, we have always prided ourselves with giving everyone from consumers to economists an extremely accurate picture of home values on an incredibly granular level," said Zillow Chief Economist Stan Humphries. "No other housing index can match the footprint and depth of the Zillow Home Value Index. We're very happy to have a new way to distribute the ZHVI and are thrilled to be working with Bloomberg to make it more broadly available."
In addition to the ZHVI, Zillow calculates numerable metrics on the housing market, from the property-level Zestimate® home valuations, to the Zillow Rent Index, to negative equity calculated down to the ZIP code level. Zillow also calculates custom data for media, academics and economists.
