“The Thing” Launches: Twin Cities Real Estate Info-Porn at Your Fingertips

by Alex Stenback on July 22, 2010


The Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors has just officially launched their proprietary, web-based, interactive market analytics tool, otherwise known as “The Thing.”

It is in a word, awesome, but we’ll let MAAR riff on this a little:

“Users can combine metrics like median sales price, months supply or days on market with breakouts like home types, foreclosures and new construction. The many possible combinations can be further broken down to geographic area, including cities, counties, ZIP codes and MLS areas. And none of this will take more than a few clicks. 10K products are built to be highly localized, visually elegant and intuitive.”

That makes it sound a little clunkier that it actually is, so check it out right here.  Also, you know the best thing?  Best thing is that it is open to anyone, not just industry professionals.

Taking valuable data and turning it into easy to use, informative, real estate market eye candy is something we can dig on, and you should too.

Finally something non industry professional consumers can use to get real data instead of the *illo crap! I hope that our local board will bring this on.
