New Embed Sizes. New Share function. New Excel formatting. New Pendings.

We are pleased to announce our latest release that includes several enhancements we'll cover below. The focus of this release was making custom graphs you build (within the Interactive Charts section) easier to embed on your site or share via email or social networking platforms. Highlights include...

More Embed sizes - Now includes 4 sizes for optimized viewing on your webpage: XL(785x440), Large (620x330), Medium (540x330), Small: (300x280)

Sharing function - Creates a standalone URL for your custom chart that can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, email or MySpace (it's still around we think)

Export to Excel - Revamped the formatting, saving you the time previously needed to expand columns, etc. on the exported data spreadsheet

New Pendings - Added to the Market Activity facet bar. Total Pendings is still there, but this gives you a more timely view of contract activity.

Sold Price to Original List Price - Interactive Chart now covers the more precise "average ratio" rather than "ratio of the averages" (don't worry, we dive into the weeds below)

 

Keep reading to learn more about each enhancement...

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. Think you have a more compelling way to spit out data views?  Want to get ahead of the rbiNerdery in terms of a flashy charts or column views?  Utilize the interactive chart module to drill down on stats related to segments of interest and select the Print/Export button.

 

 

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

We have added a new view to our Interactive Charts catalog - Bar Graphs.  Graphing aficionados may slap us for not referring to these as 'column' or 'vertical bar' graphs, but we'll go ahead and call 'em Bar Graphs to keep it simple and enable a quirky and not all that sensical blog headline.  So what does this mean?
