2010 Year End Stats are here! If you haven't already, check out RBI's analysis of the 2010 Baltimore Metro and DC Metro areas. As MRIS has done in the past, we have published county-by-county year end reports, though you'll notice new formatting. Another critical difference - we leveraged a cleaner methodology in generating the stats in these reports (as detailed in a previous post) as well as all historical reports going back to 1997. Finally, we've added the year end reports for each of the multi-county associations that currently have standalone pages on our site. See below for more information on where these reports are located.

As usual this time of year, brokers and agents have passed along inquiries regarding the whereabouts of the annual Year End stats and when this data will be available. The Year End aggregate data will be published within Detailed Reports for each County the week of March 2 (Note, this date had to be moved back a week due to unforeseen issues requiring additional processing time). We'll explain the reason for the publication date below (skip to the end to view the revised stats release schedule)...

MRIS has historically pulled the previous year's aggregate stats in the mid-February timeframe in order to allow for any procrastinating agents out there to submit closed transactions from last year, and RBI will be following the same schedule.

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.

As part of first post-rbiPRO launch release, we've provided a capability that should be enticing to any old school Excel wiz - Export via CSV.

From there, you can sort, sum, and pivot-table away - all within the comfort of your favorite spreadsheet program.
