New! Housing Report

The Housing Report, a joint project with NAR Advocacy, highlights residential housing market metrics in a state or a congressional district. The one-page, monthly report showcases metrics such as monthly sales counts, listing counts and months of inventory. State association staff and NAR staff will leverage the Housing Report when performing advocacy activities with state and federal legislators.  RPR and NAR will be reaching out to State Associations to begin implementation.
