Five Best Practices for Analyzing Local Housing Markets
What: Local market factors, which impact real estate lending, servicing and investment decisions, continue to grow in number and complexity. The need to provide a comprehensive view as to how market conditions impact a property, its value and the borrower are vital to understanding market drivers.
However, gathering, analyzing and integrating accurate market intelligence into existing decisioning and risk management workflows can be a daunting – and often inconsistent – task. Improving the analysis of local markets can be easy with the adoption of five best practices based on key questions.
Questions: 1) Are property values recovering in the market?
2) What types of properties are showing the least/most robust appreciation?
3) How is the supply of available inventory impacting property values? What demand factors are having the greatest influence on market trends and property values?
4) Is this a strong rental market?
5) Does the market still offer attractive distressed property investments?
