Create Your Own Real Estate Year in Review

Did you know that you can create your own real estate year in review with InfoSparks (a NorthstarMLS core service) to share with your clients, sphere of influence and others in the area where you typically prospect?

Within InfoSparks, you can choose from several different metrics (Homes for Sale, Closed Sales, Days on Market, Months Supply and more), to tap into. From there, you can choose to highlight whichever metrics you prefer and zero in on other variables, such as number of bedrooms, size, etc.

Whichever way you choose to present your selected housing metrics, you’ll be able to show the last years’ worth of local market history.

This screen shot above compares the # of Closed Sales in 2017 vs 2018, in St. Cloud vs Brainerd. Click to enlarge it.

Combining your data-backed year in review with your experience and real estate expertise gives you the opportunity to talk about what 2018 looked like and what the trends point toward for 2019.
