MRIS CEO: Timely, Local RE Data Trumps National Reports

Posted on June 15, 2011 by Corey Hart



MRIS President and CEO David Charron contributed his perspective on the value of local real estate data with Inman News. 

A few of our favorite points:

  • "Broad housing market reports are a dime a dozen these days, and if you ask me, that's a good approximation of their worth."
  • "Timely and accurate information, provided on a local level with a real-world perspective, is the real estate market's most important commodity -- and the ability of the public, government, financial institutions, investors and real estate professionals to make informed decisions on local housing markets is the cornerstone of an eventual housing recovery."
  • "Let's talk about the facts as they stand today and refrain from basing decisions on reports that are already five to seven months behind the market when they hit newsstands."
  • "By focusing on broad market-to-market comparisons instead of individual markets, we undercut our value as real estate professionals."
