New charts available in InfoSparks

Infosparks is the free Subscriber program for SWMLS REALTORS® and Appraisers to generate market statistics and charts that can be shared with your clients. Two new charts are now available in InfoSparks that will give you more insight into the showing statistics on homes that are for Sale or Pending. They are called Shows To Pending and Shows Per Listing.     

Using these new metrics in InfoSparks we were able to determine that for the month of March 2019 Single Family Detached homes for sale experienced an average of 6.3 showings, while there was an average number of 15.1 showings for homes that went under contract during the same time period.

Shows To Pending:  The number of showings scheduled per listing that went into pending status during the selected reporting period. Data begins in January 2018.*

Shows Per Listing:  The average number of showings scheduled on active listings for the selected time period. Data begins in January 2018.*

*To be included in the calculation of this metric, a listing must be enabled for ShowingTime services and must have a showing in its first 28 days on the market.

InfoSparks can be accessed from the GAAR Member Portal or through the FLEX Menu button (see Products) and is a free member benefit to all SWMLS Participants and Subscribers. InfoSparks gives users the ability to create customized market statistic charts using data from the MLS. Simply select an area (or create your own!), choose a metric, filter results and share!
