There are no house price statistics for Ecuador, and its statistical data is generally weak. The Instituto Nacional de Estad'stica y Censos is an ill-organized collection of stale data. The Banco Central del Ecuador is better, but alas has few downloadable time-series (data tends to be in 'press release' format). The monthly report on inflation is well presented.
