WASHINGTON - The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight released two new housing appreciation indexes last week with its quarterly House Price Index, focusing on housing trends in urban and rural areas.

The House Price Index tracks average house price changes in repeat sales or refinancing on the same single-family properties.
