Land Price Index reaches 125.9 during second half of 2018

The Land Price Index (LPI) for the Colombo District compiled by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL), reached 125.9 during the 2nd half of 2018, recording an increase of 18 per cent, compared to the 2nd half of 2017. The three sub-indices of LPI, namely residential, commercial and industrial have contributed to this increase. LPI is compiled covering all Divisional Secretariat (DS) Divisions of the Colombo District, using per perch bare land prices collected from the Government Valuation Department in order to monitor developments in the real estate sector. To maintain homogeneity, three separate sub-indices for residential, commercial and industrial lands are computed, considering the diverse nature of the land use, while the overall LPI is calculated by taking the average of these three sub-indices.
