If you and your clients want to know how home sales in your area stack up against last year’s, check out the Market Snapshot feature of MarketViewer. This tool, available only to members of Texas REALTORS®, lets you define your area and then shows you data, charts, and graphs to compare the most recent month with the stats from the same month last year. You also get a year-to-date comparison between this year and last.

To find the Market Snapshot, visit texasrealestate.com/marketviewer, click or tap the red Report Menu button near the upper-left, and select Market Snapshot. Once you choose the area and the month, you will get stats on closed sales, median and average sales price, days on market, months of inventory, ratio of sales price to list price, new and active listings, and more. You can also download the results as a PDF, image, or PowerPoint slide. Look for the download icon at the bottom-right part of the page.
