How's the Market?

Great question! This real-time market profile report will tell you everything you need to know, providing a data-driven analysis of the market and a quick explanation of what that data means for the area you are moving to.

The real estate market is hyper-local, so while national trends, such as the price of lumber in spring 2021, may affect the national housing market, local markets will vary wildly from the national one based on local economic trends. This report provides a great holistic overview of the market, and will also vary based on market segment--meaning the various price points within the local housing market. Click through the market profile and review the charts further. Select "market segments" to learn more about the particular price point you are interested in, and learn how long homes at the price point stay on market for and the average number of bedrooms and age of homes at the price! Your real estate agent will wonder how you're so informed on a market you've never even been to!
