The Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking Survey
The Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking Survey collects and analyzes responses from more than 2,000 real estate agents and brokers nationwide each month regarding home purchase transactions and mortgage usage patterns.
The survey is conducted the first week of each month and covers data points and trend extensions from the prior month. Compiled survey data is released to subscribers by the middle of each month. The survey's deliverables meet the needs of both strategic-minded executives and the sophisticated economic researcher or financial analyst. Monthly deliverables for full subscribers include:
- A database of buyer-side transactions with data elements for location of respondent, time period, property category, homebuyer type, financing method, sales price and buyer-side commission
- A database of listing-side transactions with data elements for location of respondent, time period, property category, homebuyer type, sales price, listing price, time on market, number of offers and listing-side commission
- Individual index responses on monthly changes in home prices, number of closed transactions, REO inventory, short sale inventory, and non-distressed inventory, with each response coded by location of respondent and time period
- Textual comments from survey respondents on local market conditions that can be sorted by both time period and location of the respondent
To aid in analysis without the need for custom-programming, all data is delivered in an Excel spreadsheet format. Additionally, more than 20 pre-programmed pivot tables are included to speed initial analysis of the data.
In addition to the detailed data, each subscribing company on a monthly basis receives: charts of key data point historical trends and a PowerPoint presentation of the survey results -- plus a teleconference briefing and analysis of the latest HousingPulse findings.
