What is HousingTracker: HousingTracker is an attempt to gain a more realtime understanding of the national housing market. HousingTracker data is compiled weekly from MLS listings which contain asking prices as opposed to the Realtor reported sale prices. HousingTracker gives you the 25th percentile, 50th percentile, and 75th percentile asking price for the metro areas covered. Additionally, the number of homes for sale (Inventory) for the metro area is reported.
What's new with HousingTracker.net: HousingTracker.net is the new home of the HousingTracker website which was formerly housed on my personal website BenEngebreth.org. This new site has been improved in that I am now sampling true metropolitan areas instead of the very roughly defined areas in the first version of HousingTracker (available here still).
