South Region HPI Now Available!

We are happy to report another transitional milestone has been met. All South Okanagan and South Peace River members now have access to the MLS® Home Pricing Index.

What is HPI?

  • For those who do not know, HPI stands for Home Price Index and provides additional real estate marker trend information for the members. 
  • The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) is the most advanced and accurate tool to gauge home price levels and trends. 
  • The product is offered to us/ our members through cooperation with CREA, in conjunction with Altus Data Group
  • Ex-OMREB members already have access to the tool since 2019. And HPI is used to compliment statistical information we provide to our members.
  • The South Region HPI will capture the ex-SOREB area for now and will be added to the overall Association HPI once the data share is in place, hopefully in June.

Members can find HPI in Xposure under the ‘more’ tab.

To help you learn how to effectively use the MLS® Home Pricing Index, CREA will provide member training to South Members on the following days:

  • Friday April 23 at 10:00 am PST
  • Friday May 7th at 10:00 am PST

Communications – What to Expect from the Association of Interior REALTORS®

Every month the Association of Interior REALTORS® will send out Three Fixed Communications (emails):

  • Market Stats Release – within first few of days of the month (what we send to the media, we provide to members as well so that they know what we have given the media)

  • Reach – every 2nd Monday of the month
    (Focused on professionalism & professional development, includes upcoming courses)

  • News – every 3rd Monday of the month
    (Focused on supporting members’ real estate practice by covering industry related news, Association updates, enhancements, buyer survey data etc.)

Other Communications Emails: Sent ad hoc and only when deemed important enough to send as a standalone, designated communication: 

Gentle Reminder – upcoming event or other activity

Member Notices – messages deemed important enough to send a specific email, and may be time sensitive, but not critical (e.g. if the message can’t wait for the next newsletter) 

Member Call to Action – when all-member action is warranted or requested e.g. Board of Director voting

Member Alert – critical, real estate practice affecting messages (must reads!) e.g. the MLS® system down for an hour etc.


*While not all communications may appeal to you at a specific time, we recommend you always browse through to avoid missing any crucial updates, enhancements, events or changes that could affect your real estate practice and business.

Please add: [email protected] to your email address book to ensure you receive these communications (the system scrubs the list after 3 unread in a row)
