Unmatched Accuracy, Confidence and Reliability: CoreLogic Launches New Automated Valuation Model
The new single model eliminates need for multiple AVMs and increases home valuation accuracy IRVINE, CALIF. - OCTOBER 21, 2020 -- CoreLogic, a leading global property data and analytics-driven solutions provider, today announced the launch of Total Home ValueX, a new automated valuation model (AVM) that eliminates the need for multiple AVMs. Building on the existing Total Home Value suite, the new, single model methodology dramatically increases home value accuracy and hit rate for all AVM applications. "In 2020, the appraisal industry saw an immediate need to shift from traditional in-person appraisals to consistently precise and dependable digital valuation tools — a need that continues to grow and has no end in sight," said Frank Martell, president and CEO, CoreLogic. "Record low mortgage rates and a home supply shortage has meant home sellers need immediate valuations to remain competitive. This has created an even higher demand for efficient, accurate and reliable valuation tools." Traditionally, AVMs were designed with broad applications in mind, requiring businesses to choose between various models. However, this choice creates an additional risk of leveraging the incorrect AVM, which can have long-lasting and negative impacts on business growth and hit rates. To address this industry-wide problem, Total Home ValueX utilizes a singular, uniform model methodology to render highly accurate valuations across all business use cases — without sacrificing hit rate — even on hard-to-value properties. Total Home ValueX provides current market values for the U.S. residential housing stock. The model leverages CoreLogic's industry-leading property records that capture 99.9%+ of U.S. properties and span 50+ years, as well as MLS data and newly added data sources not traditionally used in AVMs to support diverse use cases and markets spanning mortgage, real estate, ReTech, FinTech, PropTech, government, insurance and even consumers. "The market continues to change, and it was time to re-imagine the traditional approach to building AVMs," said Olumide Soroye, Managing Director, Property Intelligence & Risk Management Solutions, CoreLogic. "This ground-breaking AVM platform is powered by a rich data set that is refreshed daily, cloud computing, and machine learning techniques leading to superior AVM performance that can be validated with independent testing." About CoreLogic CoreLogic (NYSE: CLGX), the leading provider of property insights and solutions, promotes a healthy housing market and thriving communities. Through its enhanced property data solutions, services and technologies, CoreLogic enables real estate professionals, financial institutions, insurance carriers, government agencies and other housing market participants to help millions of people find, buy and protect their homes.

Delta Media Upgrades Its Builders and Communities Platform for Real Estate Brokerages
Canton, Ohio -- September 30, 2020 - Delta Media Group Inc., one of America's most established and largest broker technology solutions providers, is launching a newly updated website service that allows real estate brokers to showcase affiliated home builders and communities. The latest improvement to Delta Media's robust DeltaNET 6 platform, makes it easier than ever for brokerages to feature each home builder they represent, putting a spotlight on new home listings, sales models, videos, virtual tours, floor plans, documents for downloading, maps and more. Available from directly inside the brokerage website, affiliated builders receive "a website within a website." Each updated section features a builder Home page and a navigation menu to give consumers more in-depth insight into the builder, new home offerings, links to new communities, and a contact feature to learn more about the builder. New home communities have also been upgraded, giving real estate brokerages the ability to quickly create a builder community, extending the builder's marketing to reach more consumers. The new communities' landing page features an interactive Google map, which offers the ability to search for new communities by a specific county or school district. Once a community is selected, the website displays photos of the area, features of the community that can include additional videos and photography, homes listed for sale, its location on a map, hours of the builder sales office and contact numbers, and other videos, such as a walkthrough of the community. Consumers can also search specifically for new home models by county, school district, price range, and the number of beds, sorting specifically by single-family detached homes or condo/townhomes, or both. Each model home also has a feature listing page on the broker's website. "By improving the brokerages' ability to showcase builders and their communities, it strengthens the business bond between the broker, their agents, and the builder," says Michael Minard, CEO and owner of Delta Media. "Builders know that real estate agents sell 85% of all homes, and they want innovative new ways to connect with agents and their clients. Delta is working to create a stronger bridge between builders, agents and their clients." Minard notes that Coldwell Banker Prime, a leading brokerage in Upstate New York, is among the first to debut the new Delta Media web service here. Coldwell Banker Prime, among the top 10 Coldwell Banker offices in the U.S., features 12 builders it has relationships with and dozens of their communities, all accessible from its main brokerage website. A sample of a Coldwell Banker Prime affiliated builder community is available here. More information about Delta Media and its new DeltaNET 6 platform are online at deltamediagroup.com.

iBuyer Market Report: iBuyer Home Purchases Fell 88% Year over Year in the Second Quarter as the Pandemic Paused Business
An appealing option for homeowners seeking liquidity, certainty and safety, iBuyers are now making a comeback after purchasing the fewest homes in more than three years in the second quarter SEATTLE, Sept. 11, 2020 -- The nation's top iBuyers bought 880 homes in the second quarter, or 0.1% of homes that sold across more than 400 U.S. metros, according to an analysis from Redfin, the tech-powered real estate brokerage. That is down 88% from 7,410 homes, or 0.6% market share, a year earlier and represents the smallest number of properties purchased by iBuyers since the first quarter of 2017. All of the major iBuyers, including RedfinNow, Opendoor, Zillow and Offerpad, suspended purchases at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and began to slowly reopen in May and June as the housing market began to recover. In dollar terms, iBuyers spent just $195 million buying homes in the second quarter, compared with $1.6 billion a year earlier. The Redfin analysis used MLS and public records data to identify home purchases and sales made by the most well-known national iBuyers. The term "iBuyer" (short for instant buyer) is used to describe real estate companies that purchase houses from homeowners in quick, cash transactions. These companies then make any necessary improvements and resell the homes. While iBuyer market data isn't yet available for July and August, Jason Aleem, vice president of RedfinNow, said he has seen a major uptick in demand over the last few months. "The pandemic has brought a lot of folks into the market who need liquidity, certainty and a safe and contactless way to sell their home," Aleem said. "RedfinNow is working with several move-up buyers who need a bigger house with room to work from home, as well as parents moving closer to their adult children." "One trend that has ramped up since the pandemic began is the iBuyer bidding war," Aleem continued. "Homeowners are seeking out offers from multiple iBuyers so they can feel confident they are getting the best possible price in this blazing hot market without a bunch of foot traffic coming through. As a result, iBuyers are making more competitive offers." In the second quarter, Phoenix saw the most significant slump in iBuyer market share, with iBuyers acquiring 0.8% of homes that sold there, down 3.3 percentage points from the second quarter of 2019. Raleigh and Las Vegas saw the second and third biggest drops, falling 2.9 and 2.7 percentage points, respectively. Despite Phoenix's outsized loss, its 0.8% market share was the highest among the top iBuyer markets. Raleigh and Charlotte came in second and third place, both at 0.6%. Las Vegas and Atlanta rounded out the top five, at 0.5% and 0.4%, respectively. iBuyers Sold Homes Much Faster Than Last Year in the Second Quarter In the second quarter, iBuyer-owned homes found a buyer after being listed on the market for a median of 13 days, down from 40 days a year earlier. A typical, non-iBuyer home spent 37 days on the market, unchanged from a year prior. "Back in early spring when the market was reeling, RedfinNow was very aggressive with our listing prices and price drops, which helped us sell homes faster," Aleem said. "Redfin's Direct Access, which allows buyers to use our app to tour listings without an agent, also made it safe, fast and easy for buyers to tour our homes, all of which are vacant. The buyers' agents we worked with told us our homes were selling in part because their clients felt comfortable touring them on their own." iBuyers Bought Less Expensive Homes Than Last Year in the Second Quarter iBuyers bought homes for a median of $241,100 in the second quarter, down from $250,000 a year earlier. In all but one iBuyer market where sale price data is available, iBuyers purchased homes for less than the metro-area median. The only exception was Riverside, CA, where the median iBuyer purchase was $400,000, approximately $6,000 higher than the metro-area median sale price. The full report complete with charts, metro-level data and methodology is available here. About Redfin Redfin is a technology-powered residential real estate company, redefining real estate in the consumer's favor in a commission-driven industry. We do this by integrating every step of the home buying and selling process and pairing our own agents with our own technology, creating a service that is faster, better and costs less. We offer brokerage, iBuying, mortgage, and title services, and we also run the country's #1 real estate brokerage search site, offering a host of online tools to consumers, including the Redfin Estimate. We represent people buying and selling homes in over 90 markets in the United States and Canada.

MooveGuru Delivers Rapid Growth During COVID, Reaching 1000 Offices and 55,000 Agents
ATLANTA, Sept. 01, 2020 -- Roughly 35 million Americans move each year and MooveGuru is making it easier and more affordable than ever before. The Roswell, GA based company secured lead funding from the Atlanta Technology Angels last October to fuel growth and additional development. Today, MooveGuru has crested 1,000 real estate brokerages, serving clients of more than 55,0000 real estate agents during the COVID pandemic. MooveGuru has developed a moving concierge solution that is provided to real estate brokerage firms who wish to deliver moving services to their clients. The services range from something simple like a change of utilities to a full hands-free move. Sam Rafeh, Operating Principle of Keller Williams Antelope Valley and investor in Hollywood Title said, "MooveGuru provides us a complete system to efficiently assist our clients in moving out of, or into their home. The service is aimed at reducing the stress during a move that has only become more amplified during COVID, and delivering additional homeowner services." Sam Rafeh will be providing the MooveGuru service to clients in Palmdale, California, and is MooveGuru's 1000th customer. The Atlanta Technology Angels led the investment in MooveGuru last October. The COVID pandemic caused an economic seizure to the entire US Economy that many believed would wipe out young growth companies. After the original shock in March and April, MooveGuru continued their business development efforts. As real estate rebounded in mid-summer across America, MooveGuru saw an incredible lift, growing brokerage partnerships from 300 to more than 1000. The real estate industry has been a key driver of economic vitality during the pandemic, spurring significant investment in prop-tech firms exploding with growth. According to the National Association of REALTORS®, existing home sales have grown 24.7%. Joe Beverly, an entrepreneur, a member of the Atlanta Technology Angels and an investor in the company, said, "Before I make an investment, I want to see a company with a great value proposition for customers, a solid management team which understands their technology and how to sell it, a good market into which it can sell, and the operations and financial know-how to make it all happen. MooveGuru has all of those things which is what excited me and several other ATA members about making an investment." About MooveGuru In 2016, MooveGuru Inc. launched a free mover engagement program to real estate agents and brokers with the idea of connecting home buyers and sellers to convenience and savings on moving services. Using just-in-time delivery through artificial intelligence algorithms, MooveGuru Inc. ensures consumers receive agent-branded savings from national and local retailers and utility connections as they step through the relocation process. Today, more than 1000 brokerages, their agents, and clients are connected to the MooveGuru platform.

ActivePipe Unveils Real Estate Content
New feature bridges gap between property marketing and content marketing Austin, TX - ActivePipe, the nation's leading email marketing solution for real estate companies and teams, announced today the rollout of Real Estate Content, a new feature that allows users to automate genuine content experiences within their email marketing campaigns. This feature is available now to current users following an extensive Q1-Q2 beta testing trial of rookie and veteran agents. "The Launch of Real Estate Content couldn't be timed better to coincide with Smart Match," says ActivePipe CRO Mike Feller. "With Real Estate Content, ActivePipe users can now take advantage of content marketing inside of their emails. We know that not everyone in agents' networks are looking to buy or sell their home, but with this feature, you can remain top-of-mind with current news, home design and renovation tips that are helpful, engaging and informative, so when they are ready to buy or sell, they know you're the one to call." Real Estate Content launches on the heels of ActivePipe's acquisition of HomePrezzo, the Australia-based presentation and content creation software that will help power Real Estate Content. HomePrezzo's tools, among many others, offer the ability to produce dynamic landing pages for agents, also. For agents choosing to utilize Real Estate Content, an option to be redirected to a personalized landing page is included. Real Estate Content reimagines content marketing by persona, ensuring each contact receives content matched to their personal interest no matter where they are in the property buying or selling process. Real Estate Content's blogs even help infer buying or selling intentions. This passive marketing technique gives you more information about your prospects making your personal outreach even more effective. Pre-built Customer Journeys are enhanced with clickable, agent-branded content, precisely catered to provide the right information to help move prospects closer to their goals while keeping you front of mind as the expert they need to complete a smooth transaction. ActivePipe's Real Estate Content library will deliver new pieces of data-driven content for agents. At launch, the library currently holds 100 original content marketing pieces for agents to choose from. Users can have content automatically inserted into their emails based on tags and categories assigned to their contacts. Through ActivePipe's proprietary AI system, user profiles are generated based on several categories and tags (i.e.: upsizer, downsizer, empty-nester, etc.) Agents and brokers are able to leverage ActivePipe to effectively lead their networks down a path of intention that results in more home sales. "ActivePipe developers are constantly looking for ways to save real estate agents time and money," Feller says. "However, the places we see opportunity to grow in the email marketing space are the same places agents are experiencing frustration. Our focus is to mitigate that frustration by listening to our users, many of whom were tired of sharing the same content to their networks. Real Estate Content saves time and brings more value to your email campaigns." About ActivePipe ActivePipe helps real estate agents to know which prospects to call next, based on their behaviour with your content. Cut through the noise and make easier calls by focusing on the topics your prospects are engaging with.

CoStar Group Closes Acquisition of Digital Auction Platform Ten-X Commercial
WASHINGTON - June 24, 2020 - CoStar Group, Inc. the leading provider of commercial real estate information, analytics and online marketplaces, announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Ten-X for $190 million in cash. "We are pleased that we were able to close on our acquisition of Ten-X so quickly and we look forward to getting to work on combining the strengths of Ten-X with the strengths of CoStar Group to make the platform even more valuable for our brokers and the institutions they represent." said Andy Florance, CEO of CoStar Group. Ten-X is the clear, leading platform for conducting commercial real estate online auctions and negotiated bids, having successfully facilitated $24 billion in transactions since 2009. Ten-X partners with commercial real estate brokers providing them with technology that makes them more efficient, reduces the time to sale, and speeds commission payments. All the transactions conducted on the Ten-X platform require a broker and since inception the platform has helped brokers earn close to one billion dollars in fees. The broker remains the seller's primary point of contact, relationship manager and the expert with invaluable information necessary for buyers to underwrite and purchase an asset. Sellers on the Ten-X platform benefit from proven technology that exposes their property to a global audience of qualified buyers, with trusted underwriting, transparency from seller dashboards, real-time updates, and proven contracting and closing. The mission of the Ten-X platform is to sell the property faster, at the best price possible and with greater certainty of close. CoStar Group plans to integrate the Ten-X auction platform into both LoopNet and CoStar, thereby exposing the auctions to CoStar Group's massive online commercial real estate audience with 11 million monthly visits. The integrated offering will expand the audience for Ten-X auctions up to 40 times its current scope. CoStar Group has the largest global commercial real estate database and research operation and intends to use those resources to enhance and dramatically expand the potential buyer database Ten-X uses to draw bidders to its auctions. In addition, CoStar Group has 280,000 properties offered for sale on its platforms and plans to market the Ten-X platform as an alternative sales method for those brokers. We believe that more properties offered for sale on the Ten-X platform will attract more bidders. The transaction is expected to be discussed on the Company's conference call to discuss financial results for the second quarter of 2020 to be held at 5:00 PM ET on Tuesday, July 28, 2020. About CoStar Group, Inc. CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSGP) is the leading provider of commercial real estate information, analytics and online marketplaces.

Counselor Realty Locks Up HomeActions and New Lead Scoring Service
MINNEAPOLIS (JUNE 29, 2020) -- Counselor Realty, an agent-owned powerhouse in the Twin Cities and Greater MN market, is teaming up with the HomeActions platform for agent email marketing and relationship building. HomeActions' exclusive program provides contact database building, nurturing, intelligence and insulation. Starting out, HomeActions appears as the best-in-class, customized e-newsletter. The bi-weekly system delivers lead-generating "Conversation Starters" through its hyper-local content, widgets and predictive metrics. Email addresses that are entered into the agent's HomeActions dashboard become exclusive to that agent. HomeActions will not be available to competing brokerages for a designated period. "NEW" Lead Scoring Launching: Agents have been asking for ways to benefit from AI-powered capabilities. HomeActions will be adding even more predictive metrics that are developed from the new Lead Scoring 360 system. The goal is to help brokers and agents focus on the segment of their database that is "Warming Up" and likely to transact in the next 3-6 months. Presentation on the lead scoring system at: https://midd.me/RG7n Albert Clark, HomeActions President, commented on the agreement, "All brokerages know real estate is a numbers game. The more contacts agents can make, the better they can nurture these relationships, the better their numbers. We share this core mission with Counselor." Counselor CEO Nick Dreher has seen his teammates' results with HomeActions and wants to make sure his agents can "lock-up" all their email contacts…and benefit from AI-powered tools.

Windermere Real Estate Partners with FloorPlanOnline for Virtual Showing Service
Windermere partners with FloorPlanOnline to provide a Virtual Showing Service featuring virtual walkthroughs, 2D/3D floor plans and professional photography. SEATTLE, WA, USA, June 16, 2020 -- FloorPlanOnline, a proptech platform that includes the homeowner platform HomeDiary, has partnered with Windermere Real Estate to bring the Virtual Showing Service to any of their real estate listings. The Virtual Showing Service features immersive 3D/360 virtual walkthroughs, HD photography in the context of floor plans, and an exclusive 3D Designer that allows potential buyers to drag and drop furniture, change wall colors or experiment with wall placement, all from the single property website, or virtual tour, dedicated to the home. FloorPlanOnline has also integrated with Moxi Works to enable single sign-on to simplify the Windermere agent sign up and to provide access from within its intranet. The tour features floor plans in multiple formats. Floor plans have been ranked as the most important traditional listing content by over 80% of online buyers, and now every listing can have the content buyers deem most important in these times of social distancing and limited open houses, while enabling them to virtually visit a property anytime with complete and transparent access. Most importantly, sellers will always have a "show ready" home, reducing the health risks and hassles of having to have physical property showings. The enterprise agreement positions FloorPlanOnline as the preferred virtual tour service for Windermere agents that will leverage the FloorPlanOnline network of local service providers and its proprietary process to create the necessary listing content during one appointment. Most major markets throughout the western United States will be served with full service options. In other areas, partial or self service options will be available. "I am actively looking for a home right now, and I wish every listing had the tools FloorPlanOnline provides because it gives me everything I need to help make a decision, just by seeing the property online," said Brooks Burton, COO of Windermere. "As a buyer, I find huge value in seeing the walkthrough and clear, legible floor plans with photo locations. Their 3D Design tool is also cool, as I can play around with furniture placement or even add or remove walls to see what that open concept might look like, all virtually before picking up a hammer or saw. I plan on using their HomeDiary feature for the new condo I close on soon to help me with the remodel work I will be doing!" "With the current world events and social distancing policies, more people are online now than ever before, and the need for some kind of online virtual tour experience has never been greater, since people often can't visit a property in person," said Kris Cone, CEO of FloorPlanOnline. "Our platform lets agents showcase listings 24/7 like no other, and the guided walkthrough gives the buyer an automated tour of the home in 3 minutes or less, just by clicking a button. It's also an interactive tool that allows for a deeper exploration at the browser's leisure, just by clicking anywhere on the 3D property scan. Our point and click floor plans with photos and 3D Designer compliments the walkthrough and helps users further visualize the space, and even enables 'What if' scenarios. We take things a step further by allowing the buyer, and the seller, to claim the home and get access to the listing content, including the photos and 2D/3D floor plans with designer, in their own private HomeDiary, to use either as a tool to help them manage their new home, or as a keepsake for their old home." About Windermere Real Estate Windermere Real Estate is the largest regional real estate company in the Western U.S. with over 300 offices and 6,500 agents serving communities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Mexico. Last year, Windermere closed 77,000 home sales for more than $36.7 billion in dollar volume. The Windermere family has a proud heritage of serving our neighbors via the Windermere Foundation which funds services for low-income and homeless families. Since 1989, the Windermere Foundation has contributed more than $41 million towards improving lives in the communities where we live and work. For more information, visit windermere.com. About FloorPlanOnline with HomeDiary FloorPlanOnline with HomeDiary is a leader in online listing marketing featuring floor plan visuals and other listing media. The company is the only home-related platform that has a 2D/3D floor plan tool that can be used by all parties involved in the transaction and through all phases of ownership, because HomeDiary attaches the floor plan to the home as a permanent property record. The company provides full service photography and floor plan services throughout various markets in the United States, and it is expanding its service territory through partnerships with local photographers. It also has self service tools to allow agents to convert virtually any raw floor plan source into 2D and 3D floor plans, for the listing, and beyond. Learn more at www.FloorPlanOnline.com.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Insta-Famous: Coldwell Banker Releases "The Report," a Comprehensive Guide to 2020 Luxury Real Estate
"The Report" Profiles Market Shifts in Luxury Real Estate and Spotlights Emerging Trends from Wellness to Eco-Friendly Design MADISON, N.J., Feb. 19, 2020 -- Today, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, a Realogy brand, and the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury® program released "The Report: State of Luxury 2020," a comprehensive profile of emerging luxury markets and buyers. Included in the report are trends as well as top preforming luxury markets of 2019 and those to watch in the upcoming year. "The Report" combines analysis of sales data with interviews of dozens of Coldwell Banker affiliated agents who provide on-the-ground perspectives from diverse real estate markets. Luxury trends in 2019 include migrating wealth, impacts from tax law changes in 2018 that limited deductions for state and local taxes and a focus on holistic wellness and eco-friendly design. The report also dives into how the luxury market has been impacted by LGBTQ+ and millennial demographics. In identifying the top performing luxury markets this year, the Coldwell Banker brand found that four powerhouse markets had an evenly distributed hold on the top 10% of luxury sales in 2019. Their sales prices in relation to other luxury markets made them the top performers of the industry this past year. 2019 Top Performing Luxury Markets in Review Malibu, California San Diego, California Austin, Texas Arlington, Virginia After analysis of economic factors such as job and population growth against annual metrics including sales-price-to-list-price ratios, days on market, median list price and inventory, "The Report" also identified this representative group of housing markets to watch in the year ahead. 2020 Top Luxury Markets to Watch Boise, Idaho Charlotte, North Carolina Colorado Springs, Colorado Cincinnati, Ohio Fort Worth, Texas "Power Markets" include both well-established and unexpected luxury markets offering a range of lifestyle amenities, cultural experiences and educational opportunities. Key indicators of "power" status include airport accessibility, ease of doing business, a prestige brand presence and a housing stock that prioritizes privacy, views and exclusivity. To narrow down the top ten Power Markets for Buyers and Sellers in 2019, as well as other key trends for affluent investors, the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury program collaborated with The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing to analyze the top 10 percent of active and sold listings in 2019.* Based on the median prices for the top 10 percent of homes sold in the Power Markets, key findings include: Shortest Days on Market: Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, boasted the shortest median days on market – three days – for single family homes. For condos, Silicon Valley had the shortest median days on market at eleven days. Most Affordable (Price per Square Foot): Collin County, Texas, was the most affordable luxury market for single family homes, where the median price per square foot was $164. For condos, Colorado Springs, Colorado, had the lowest median price per square foot at $153. Most Expensive (Price per Square Foot): On the flip side, the most expensive market for single family homes is Malibu, California, where the median price per square foot was $4,269. Malibu also took the top spot for condos at $1,914 median price per square foot. Evolving Market: Bozeman, Montana, stands out as an Evolving Market for its booming population, now over 100,000. The city's average sales price is hovering over $1 million. Buyers from California and Colorado are the major contributors of its expanding luxury real estate market. "Now in its third year, The Report showcases the luxury real estate successes of 2019 and highlights the trends expected to dominate in 2020," said Craig Hogan, vice president of luxury for Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. "Our affiliated agents are seeing demographic shifts in the profile of the modern luxury buyer that bring new perspectives and preferences to the luxury market. It's an exciting time to work in the luxury real estate space, and The Report continues to be an all-encompassing, timely resource for Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Property Specialists to prepare for the year ahead." "2019 was a transformative year for the luxury real estate market – we watched millennials and the LGBTQ+ community become larger stakeholders in luxury real estate and shift the profile of who's buying," said Ricardo Rodriguez, luxury property specialist with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Boston. "New trends are on the horizon: eco-friendly and wellness-focused design is in for 2020, and larger homes aren't always preferred like they once were. Now that energy efficient technologies are widely available, the expectation of a green-certified building is growing." About The Report Designed to be a definitive guide for international high-end property buying and selling, The Report adds insider intelligence to strong industry research by combining anecdotal insights from local market professionals affiliated with the Coldwell Banker® brand, as well as The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, Wealth-X, Unique Homes and other leading luxury insiders. More information on the following can be found in the full report.

Data is based on closed and recorded transaction sides of homes sold in the top 10 percent of luxury metro markets between the periods of December 16, 2018 to December 31, 2019, as gathered from multiple sources including but not limited to various Multiple Listing Services, local Real Estate Boards and the Coldwell Banker brand co-operating brokerage firms.

HUNT Real Estate Launches Open House Connect App
Digital visitor registration app automates customer lead capture and follow-up for all HUNT sales professionals February 12, 2020 - Buffalo, NY -- HUNT Real Estate ERA has partnered with Spacio by Homespotter to provide its real estate professionals with Open House Connect, a custom-branded open house registration app that digitizes guest registration and automates the follow-up process to the customer. Open House Connect replaces outdated paper sign-in sheets with digital forms and helps convert more open house visitors into customers. The app elevates the open house experience by improving the accuracy of visitor data collection and reducing labor for the agent by importing the customer's information directly into their HUNT Real Estate CRM platform. "Open houses are the most effective way to show and sell a property, but being able to analyze the visitor data has always been challenging," said Charlie Hunt, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of HUNT Real Estate Corp. "With Spacio powering the technology behind our Open House Connect app, for the first time, we will be able to get visibility into a vital component of our sales process that has been nearly impossible for us to track."

Introducing All-New Homesnap Pro
A new generation of Homesnap, the industry's most comprehensive and widely adopted real estate search and productivity platform BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 10, 2020 -- Homesnap, the market-leading national home search platform that provides real-time MLS data to consumers and a mobile productivity tool for agents, today introduced All-New Homesnap Pro, the newest and most advanced generation of its home search platform. All-New Homesnap Pro Features All-New Homesnap Pro features a simple, user-friendly interface that empowers agents to dominate their market with extensive property information and the ability to identify potential sellers and homes before the competition. This advanced generation of Homesnap provides real estate professionals with over 500 data sources on a single platform — more than any other mobile solution in residential real estate. Homesnap conducted extensive research over three years to learn exactly which features real estate agents want and need in order to grow their businesses and operate more efficiently and successfully. This feedback is at the heart of the All-New Homesnap Pro technology. "We listened to our agents and discovered that the most requested features for a real estate app are tools that give agents comprehensive property and homeowner information and ways to identify potential sellers," said John Mazur, CEO of Homesnap. "With this latest generation of Homesnap Pro, we continue to give our users resources to better attract and serve their clients." Free to all Homesnap Pro agents, All-New Homesnap features include: Off-Market Marketplace, a new feature that uses a cutting-edge machine-learning algorithm to identify potential sellers and display them on heatmaps. Real-Time MLS Data Integrations that sync contacts, saved searches and listing carts to give a fuller picture of properties. Advanced Search Filters that allow agents to find homes that meet their clients' specific criteria like parking needs, or homes with a basement, pool, or particular appliances. Improved Building Pages that provide better organized and more personalized information to users about residential buildings in their market, including the ability to browse units that match search criteria or search by individual unit numbers. The new Off-Market Marketplace uses machine learning to assign homes a Likelihood To List score, allowing agents to identify potential sellers or properties in their market that match their buyers' search criteria before they go on the market. Likelihood To List scores are presented in color-coded heatmaps that give agents the ability to visualize a wealth of property information through their filtered searches. "One of All-New Homesnap Pro's new features — Off-Market Marketplace — is an advanced adaptation of machine learning," said Lou Mintzer, Homesnap CPO. "90% of sellers select the first agent they talk to. We built a feature that uses a predictive algorithm that leverages AI to find patterns across disparate data sources to determine which homes will likely go on the market in the next year. Homesnap Pro agents can identify potential sellers before they've started the selling process, putting them one step ahead of the competition." The features included in All-New Homesnap Pro are available on iOS and Android devices to Homesnap Pro agents and are included as part of their MLS membership benefits at no additional charge. Throughout 2020, Homesnap will continue to roll out additional features and tools that help agents provide better client service and connect with prospects in real, tangible ways. For more information, visit www.homesnap.com. About Homesnap With easy-to-use mobile technology fueled by unmatched, real-time data intelligence, Homesnap is changing the way real estate agents connect with consumers and serve their clients.

An error rate of 5.6% means that half of all Redfin Estimates fall within 5.6% of the home's eventual sale price. For a typical $300,000 home, the updated Redfin Estimate is now $2,100 closer to the market value and will be within $16,800 of the final sale price half of the time. Among Redfin's most popular features, the Redfin Estimate gives homeowners, buyers, sellers and real estate agents insight into the value of more than 85 million homes. Homeowners can claim a home on Redfin to track its Redfin Estimate over time and edit facts about their property to further improve the accuracy. When it's time to sell, the Redfin Estimate is often the starting point in a conversation between a seller and her Redfin agent. "Everyone wants to know what their home is worth, which is why the Redfin Estimate drives so many homeowners to visit our site and start a conversation with a Redfin agent," said Redfin CTO Bridget Frey. "In real estate, every tenth of a percentage point matters and can represent hundreds or thousands of dollars in a home's value. Agents know that a smart, data-driven pricing strategy is often the difference between a home that sells quickly with multiple offers and one that sits on the market. The accuracy of the Redfin Estimate speaks to Redfin's data advantage as a brokerage that employs thousands of real estate agents across the country who work hand-in-hand with our engineers, providing uniquely human insights as we train our machine learning algorithms. With the best data, top tech talent and deep agent expertise, Redfin has the necessary ingredients to transform the real estate industry through AI and machine learning." A highly accurate estimate is also critical for RedfinNow, Redfin's instant-offer business. RedfinNow buys homes directly from homeowners for cash, fixes them up, if needed, and then quickly resells them. "The new release not only improves the accuracy of the estimate, it includes back-office tools that show the confidence of the estimate and project the future sales price, so we can better assess the risk and opportunity of buying a particular home," said Quinn Hawkins, head of RedfinNow. "With continued advancements in AI and machine learning, we can envision a future where the Redfin Estimate becomes a live offer for a subset of properties." More Accurate Redfin has improved the accuracy of the Redfin Estimate for both off-market and on-market properties. For homes actively listed for sale, the Redfin Estimate error rate improved by 5 basis points, improving from 1.62% to 1.57%. These accuracy gains for both on- and off-market properties were measured by comparing the performance of the previous algorithm to the updated algorithm between February and August 2019. The Redfin Estimate error rate is dynamic and updates daily for on-market homes and weekly for off-market homes. The most current national and local error rates are listed on the Redfin Estimate page. Redfin's engineers and data scientists improved the Redfin Estimate's accuracy by conducting hundreds of experiments, testing and retesting new models and incorporating new data. Because Redfin is a brokerage, the company has complete access to the Multiple Listing Services (MLS) used by real estate agents to describe properties in extensive detail, with each MLS tracking different attributes of a home that Redfin can use to calculate a more accurate estimate, such as whether a home is located on the water, has a view or faces a busy street. Expanded Coverage Redfin also expanded the Redfin Estimate to five new markets: Connecticut, Boise, Des Moines, Spokane and Chattanooga. Previously available for three property types: single family homes, condos/coops and townhouses; Redfin can now provide estimates for several new types of properties including land, mobile homes and multi-family buildings.
