The 2011 yearly reports by county are now available and, for the first time ever, RBI subscribers can also access these annual reports at ZIP Code and regional levels! Click here for an example of a year-end ZIP Code report or visit the Reports tab on any Geo page to see a list of the reports now available.

Quick Q&A...

As an rbiEXPERT or rbiPRO subscriber, do I get any additional content in the Detailed Reports category?

Yes. Not only can you keep up-to-date on Year-To-Date comparisons with the new time aggregate reports we announced a few weeks back, you'll also be able to view the "official" Year End Reports at the ZIP code level. This more granular report is for subscribers only, and should be integrated into your local trends discussion with any potential buyer or seller over the next few months. Then, come April 10th, you'll be able to access the Q1 report to continue reporting key trends for logical time ranges during your client discussions.

9/15: Tweet from (Brian Block, Managing Broker, RE/MAX Allegiance): 

"had client thought they could take 10% off listing price because that was their market in midWest. 'scuse me. Not in NoVa!"

 

One of the reasons we dig Twitter is the insight it provides into the interactions between top producing agents/brokers and their clients. The tweet above is a good example. Thanks to a strong jobs market, thousands of homebuyers flock to NoVa each year from a variety of different real estate markets. This can inevitably lead to some naivete in their expectations of the local market that can potentially require some kid gloves in order to not damage egos. One thing the tweet didn't provide visibility into (not that it could in 140 characters or less) is how Brian handled the initial offer ideas of his relocating client. I can guess, though. Brian is one of RBI's earliest adopters, so he likely had a chart like this shown on his iPad in a matter of seconds:

 

Even in the "dark days" of early 2008, the Northern Virginia market didn't see seller's agreeing to 10% off their original list price very often. Let's assume, hypothetically, the client still doesn't want to inch back toward a realistic offer. "But this is a distressed unit, that has to be worth knocking something substantial off of the offer".  Well, no...

RBI subscribers may have already noticed a bit more awesome in the interactive charts they've embedded on their websites.

No, not just the fact that your websites have updated statistics on the 10th of the month without any further work on your end (though awesome, that's been in place since rbiPRO was launched). The new awesome is more subtle - we've changed our charting engine over to HighCharts (www.highcharts.com) for a more contemporary look and feel and improved functionality.

It was essentially a plumbing change and we took care that the underlying technology wouldn't interrupt those charts that have already been shared by our subscribers...now the following improvements are showing up on our site and yours:
