This is the fourth week since the relaunch of this report with a new style and methodology. We now include more data in our report that counts as “activity”. For example, when a Subscriber places a lockbox on a new listing or when a Subscriber removes a lockbox because the property is sold, this now counts as activity. This week, activity was up 0.01% at the 49,820 level from last week. We’ve gone back 5 weeks with this new methodology.
As in the past, we’ve taken ZIP code information from each lockbox, that contains ZIP code info, and calculated hot and cold spots of showing activity. The bigger and hotter the dot, the more activity for that area. Dots are placed on the center of each ZIP code range, and we now use red and blue as hot and cold.
