Keep a pulse on the residential housing market with industry trusted proprietary indices.

Burns Housing Cycle Risk Index™

The Burns Affordability Index™ (BAI) provides our historical, current, and forecasted housing-cost-to-income ratio for 140+ metros and the United States monthly from 1985 to present. The index shows how expensive a market is relative to other metros and its own history.

Burns Under/Overpriced Market Index™
