You may have noticed a new function on the right-hand side of each Interactive Chart – ‘Compare to Past’. We integrated this feature into the rbiPRO/EXPERT experience and it can also be previewed by non-subscribers on the Mid-Atlantic page (scroll down to the Interactive Charts tab).

This new function provides yet another way of comparing monthly trends and is especially useful in pointing out when a given month really bucks the historical, seasonal trend. As an example, here's a chart showing how Pending Sales peaked earlier than usual this year as a result of the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit:

We're proud to announce the launch of our second subscription option - rbiEXPERT. Building on the foundation of rbiPRO and retaining all of its features as well, rbiEXPERT provides detailed statistical analysis for multiple geographies found nowhere else in this price range. Available at $29.99 a month, rbiEXPERT sets itself apart from rbiPRO by focusing on the context of a given micromarket and how it compares to its "parent" market(s) or "sibling" markets.

In our initial release, rbiEXPERT provides the ability to compare up to five geographies in a single view. Additionally, users can drill down on how a given stat (e.g. SP to LP ratio) is trending for a particular home type/criteria (e.g. Detached homes or 4 BR homes) across several areas. In addition to the line or bar view, customers can also export the data to Excel sheets with just one click. Embedding an rbiEXPERT graph on your website with ZIP Codes you farm instantly positions you as the local market expert.

RBI Released November 2010 Housing Market Stats Today

The monthly housing data released by RBI today shows an encouraging pattern of stability in home pricing while a downward trend is emerging in sales activity.  The median price of a home in the Baltimore Washington metro area has remained constant over the last three months indicating overall strength in the regional housing market. And while housing is hyper-local, and each area is seeing its own fluctuation, I’m still seeing this as a region-wide trend.
