All systems are go as 2013 sees a new lockbox report 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 week, activity was at the 40,479 level. 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 blue and red as hot and cold.
