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:
