Does the word “statistics” intimidate you? Not only is it a hard word to say, but statistics themselves can often be confusing. As you know, in the world of real estate it’s important to differentiate yourself from the competition, and market statistics could very well be the factor that separates you from the rest. That’s why we at Independence Title are very excited to offer you two new statistics tools!
Our first tool is a new class called Stats in a Flash. In this class, we’ll take the dread out of statistics and have you creating your own custom stats in no time. We’ll define common terminology and show you where to locate statistics, how to create your own, and when to use them in your business. If you want to take your marketing to the next level, or if you just need data to support your negotiations, this class is for you!
The next tool is our new MLS Statistics module, now available for members of the Austin MLS. Our new stats feature a wealth of information on specific zip codes and MLS areas for Central Texas to both increase your expertise in your market and help you and your clients make better home-buying and home-selling decisions. You can find average and median prices, appreciation over time, months of inventory, days on market, sales and new listings by price range, and much, much more. This is a password-protected site (a requirement of our data license agreement with the board). Agents will get an updated password monthly from their business development rep.
You can use the menu to search by individual months or specific zip codes and MLS areas, or just click on “Full Reports” to view and/or download full monthly reports by zip code or MLS area. At the bottom of each PDF, there are buttons to quickly email, print, or download. (Because we may only offer these statistics to members of the Austin MLS, we are unable to provide a link to share on social media.) The full report by MLS area features heat maps showing the hottest areas by growing numbers of sales, median price appreciation, and inventory.
We’re so thrilled to be able to offer these resources to you! If you are interested in our class, Stats in a Flash, contact your Independence Title Business Development Rep or check out our Upcoming Events. And watch your email for a link and password to our new online stats module!
