We set out to solve the problem that real estate market analysis (that is, intelligent interpretation of the raw data) is both highly latent and regionally aggregate. (You can get a “San Francisco Bay Area” overview from last quarter but what does that mean in Palo Alto or Sunnyvale, today? Turns out, it means very little.)
Real estate agents, and a number of free websites, will give you an estimate of the price of your home. While this is great information, to our way of thinking, it’s not nearly enough – that price estimate can’t answer questions like “What is the market doing?” In order to make decisions you need real-time analysis for your local area. Altos Research is in the business to help you learn the market. We focus on questions like, “So what?” and “Where are things heading?” Our customers have this kind of research and information in every financial aspect of their lives; and they hunger for it in their real estate decisions as well.
