Hi Don:


I see you do a bunch of the market reports, are you having any response from buyers or sellers that they are reading them? Just curious if I should do more...

Kelly - I advise all agents to create market reports.  There are two benefits to doing so:

1.  You will be the most knowledgeable agent regarding all market characteristics and statistics
2.  Buyers and sellers will appreciate your knowledge and insight into the market and its fluctuations.

These market reports take about an hour each to create.  Our MLS does not count cumulative days on market, so I have to calculate that number myself.  However, it gives a much truer picture of the real market time sellers can expect.

If you go on our MLS, you'll see an average of 90 - 100 days on market.  When you factor in the cumulative days on market (adding in the market times of properties that were cancelled and immediately re-listed as new, along with those that expired and were re-listed) then you come up with the actual marketing time, which in the case of this market report averaged 178 days - quite a bit of a difference from the stats easily obtainable from the MLS.

And, of course, I do hear from future clients about these reports.  I've actually added in two towns that I now report on regularly, because I had received so many requests from the public for more information on those towns.
