Daily Housing Reports Without The Normal "Spin"

REALTOR In Tallahassee ImageEvery month, we see new housing reports that are issued first by the National Association of REALTORS®, then by the Florida Association of REALTORS®, and finally by any local REALTORS® who actually pay attention to market reporting.

The one thing all of these seem to have in common is a consistent “spin.” Somebody at the National Association of REALTORS® determines the best light in which to report the data, then we see a parroting affect all the way down the food chain until somebody locally can announce “now is the time to buy!”

Three years ago, I was one of those local REALTORS®, echoing the housing reports from on high. I figured the information would be received by a thankful reading audience, but I was wrong. I was very wrong.

Most of the readers of my early blogs were quick to point out that I was just passing the buck, reporting good news whenever it could be found, otherwise not reporting any real statistics at all. After receiving enough of this great feedback, I decided to make a commitment to providing current and accurate housing reports, whether they were positive or negative.

A Commitment To Fresh Housing Reports

Picture of Twitter and Real EstateSo I have now made a new commitment to providing the freshest, unbiased housing reports that can be found on the internet. I am so committed to this that I even use the moniker of HousingReporter on Twitter (follow me if you haven’t already).

The Tallahassee Housing Report is now updated daily, with each new day bringing a short housing report with a real estate graph and analysis. The following list shows the most recent reports, are you checking them out?

So, what do you think? Enough housing reports to keep you in the loop? Let me know with feedback in the comments section, thank you.

Joe, what product do you use to produce those graphs with the comment "clouds?"  Don't believe I've ever seen graphs quite like what you've got there - they are very clever.

Good Morning Joe, I had not seen your Real Estate Depreciation report previously and like the concept.  I'm going to put one together here and see how it pans out.  Thanks!

Let me know when you do Kevin, I'll check it out. It's a great visual to get sellers to understand that prices are dropping.
