How to show neighborhood demand

When your clients or prospects are interested in tracking a neighborhood’s activity, the RPR Market Activity report is an ideal option. First, it’s flexible and can be generated for any geography, even areas drawn using the RPR map. And the report itself includes changes in a local real estate market based on listing information and MLS data. The Market Activity report can include active, pending, sold, expired, distressed, new for lease, and recently leased properties, as well as recent price changes and upcoming open houses for a period of up to six months.

The steps below show one way to create a report. For this example, we are interested in showcasing New, Pending, and Recently Sold Listings, as well as Price Changes. We will only include single family residences, and will include the previous three months of activity.
