Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 15, 2007
From the housing geeks at HousingIntelligence.com comes Neighborhood Insights , a research tool that covers 97% of all US residential real estate transactions. In addition to a standard collection of powerful reports, this dynamic multidimensional online reporting tool uses an unparalleled set of housing data and demographic information.
"Neighborhood Insights exemplifies our philosophies and approach for analyzing housing markets," said Jonathan Smoke, president and founder of BlueSmoke and HousingIntelligence. "When designing this application, we didn't settle for anything that came short of addressing the needs of national, regional or local housing market professionals. As a result, our data covers over 275 markets so that whether someone needs to cover the whole country, compare counties in a single market, or understand differences in housing market activity in local zip codes, Neighborhood Insights is the only application needed."
Neighborhood Insights represents an innovative combination of housing sales data and demographic data to enable incredible insights into housing trends. For builders, developers, real estate agents and lenders there is nothing as powerful as understanding which consumers are buying which homes, and how profiles change over time and across neighborhoods. Neighborhood Insights combines rich property data with the most current demographic data available to provide reliable profiles of the households buying homes.
For Jonathan Smoke, Neighborhood Insights is a dream come true. "I've spent over 12 years consulting to or working in the housing industry. This is the application that I dreamed of having. There's nothing like it. Where else can you follow home sales and price trends with information on who's buying down to the neighborhood for practically any market in the country?"
True to the old adage, it's all about location, location, location. The blog articles on HousingIntelligence.com continually emphasize that local factors really determine housing market performance. Anyone who wants true housing intelligence needs information that goes well beyond the national and MSA level statistics. In Neighborhood Insights you can drill down to the neighborhood--county, census tract, zip code or actual subdivision.
The application covers over 275 MSAs in the United States from the biggest housing markets like Chicago, New York, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Phoenix, and Washington, DC, to the smallest MSAs like Carson City, NV, Casper, WY, Hot Springs, AR, and Victoria, TX. The application includes data on both new and existing home sales.
