First Quarter 2018

COAR is launching a new feature for Appraiser members -a quarterly newsletter with information about MLSCO, news and events. Currently, Appraiser members are not subscribed to any of our regular communications since they are focused on real estate agents. If you would like to subscribe to other communications, or unsubscribe from this quarterly email, please click here.

We hope you will find the content relevant to your business, if you have any suggestions for future content or information you think we should be providing Appraiser members, please contact kim@coar.com.

COAR is working to make the statistics Rapattoni and the stats we produce usable for all our members-including appraisers.


Here is a list of the various ways MLSCO members can utilize our data:

COAR Quarterly Market Statistics - COAR pulls quarterly stats on the 10th of the month and gets them published between the 10th and 15th of the month following the close of a quarter. These stats are static and will not reflect any solds input late. They are divided by section and housing type. Data included: Total sold, #short sales, #bank owned, sold volume, median sales amount, average days on market and percent change from the previous year.

COAR staff produces the Quarterly Statistics by utilizing Statistics button as part of a Standard search in Rapattoni.

COAR Quarterly Statistics are published at coar.com and publicly available.

Trends - Trend Graphics pulls COAR statistics on a monthly basis around the 10th of the month. You can choose from any of the following categories: the area, subdivision, property type, time period (including quarterly), lot size, year build, new/resale, square footage, bedrooms and bathrooms.

The system has a data table with a variety of different data sets. The system currently pulls quarterly % change for sales, solds, price per square foot, days on market, average sale/sold price, median sale sold price and months of inventory. We are in the process of adding financing types and a % change column for all rows in the data set.

This feature is located in the menu bar in Rapattoni.

InfoSparks - InfoSparks is a highly visual system that allows you to export data charts based on an area, price ranges, residential property types, square footage, bedrooms and lot size. We have also recently had them add financing options. Charts can be pulled for average/median sales price, listing price, # of new listings, homes for sale, pending sales, sold, days on market, months of supply, price per square food, % of original price, % of list price and recently added dollar volume.

The data charts and % change can be pulled for one month of activity, 3 months (quarterly), 6 months or 12 months of activity

InfoSparks is located in the Single Sign on menu on the home page of Rapattoni.

COAR Market Report - COAR has partnered with EcoNorthwest for a comprehensive, quarterly dive into out data. The next report will be released this week and include a housing price index.
