By
Real Estate Agent with Joe Manausa Real Estate 8508880888

This is long over due. Ever since I posted a blog on how to use Microsoft Excel to create market graphs, I have been thinking about doing an instructional video for Active Rain members. Finally, I have it posted!

If you have been wondering if you could be posting useful charts and graphs in a real estate blog, you can! Here is all you need to know about creating simple charts using Microsoft Excel. Watch the video and let me know what you think!

If you would like to see examples of real estate market graphs or if you want some ideas for market report schedules, please drop on by.

This is what I was looking for, thanks for your time in putting together the tutorial!  One (unrelated) question - would you mind sharing how you made/where you got the "buttons" at the bottom of your post (with link to your market reports, etc.)  I've googed 'custom buttons', etc but don't see anything.  Thanks!

Thank Kevin. I find that making something in MS Powerpoint and then doing a screen capture to convert it to a .jpg or .gif file is the easiest way to make buttons.

No problem Kevin. There are probably other great ways, this one just is simple.

Hi Joe,

Your blog was one of my first learning experiences on Active Rain, and it made an impact on me. I relly enjoyed it. Here is how I recently employed some of the techniques you discussed on screen saving.:http://activerain.com/blogsview/910639/How-productive-is-your-BLOG-in-driving-traffic-to-your-website

Best regards,

Joe, thank you for sending the link to this tutorial. Frank and I just watched it. What camera did you use? We are going to start doing videos this year and trying to decide what camera to use. Please, let us know if you're ever over this way, we'd love to meet you!

Will do Sharon. I used camtasia (software, no camera required). It does a live screen capture that you can "do and record" at the same time.

Raj, you might be able to buy it from a third-party as well. Good luck!

Which program did you use to do the tutorial on the Excel graphs? I need to listen again but this was great. Would Snagit also work for screen capture of the graph to then move to the blog?

I'm glad it helped Cheryl. Yes, snagit is fine. I wrote this blog 2 years ago... I now use the built-in snipping tool that comes with Windows 7.

 

For the video, I used Camtasia.

Hi Joe,

Just watched your Video for the first time.  I have decided that it is imperative that I post market reports.  I will definitely be watching your video again.  I will also checkout the other pointers that you provide about Market Reports.  Thank You for Sharing.  I will definitely start tinkering with EXCEL.

...4 years later... Joe, a friend of mine sent this link to me so I could start making graphs for market reports. Thanks for putting it together, even if it was a long, long time ago. Are there any updates you'd make in todays world?
